OVERVIEW

Extended functions, more voices, and versatility that today's drummer demands.

The Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Kit is the next step up from the popular SD5K, with the expanded functionality that will please drummers and complement any stage. The drum feel is incredibly life-like, with over 300 realistic sounds and an expressive hi-hat. The bass drum pad accommodates a double pedal. With a dual-zone snare pad, 20 preset kits and space for 30 user kits, the SD7K delivers state-of-the-art electronic sounds with USB connectivity at an unbeatable price.

No matter what style you play, you owe it to yourself to explore the world of recording and performance possibilities that electronic percussion offers. The Simmons SD7K Drum Set has live, electronic pads and hand percussion options letting you add exotic sounds that would otherwise require a large and space-consuming collection of instruments. Drum giants like Vinnie Colaiuta and Josh Freese incorporate electronic drums into their live kits, giving them a far broader palette to work from. Plus, with many bands playing live to sequenced backgrounds, electronics are essential for triggering and interacting with your backing tracks. In the studio, the wide variety of sample libraries available make electronic drum sets more useful than ever. Just play the song, and use the SD7K kit's MIDI signal to trigger your choice of samples, and you'll have drum tracks that can be endlessly altered as you mix. Replace the snare, kick or toms, or combine multiple samples for a massively powerful wall of sound.

Bass pedal sold separately.

I bought this because I needed to practice. The materials arent the greatest. One of the tubes was damaged right out of the box. It took me a long time to assemble. After all the complaints, this set gets the job done. It is pretty quiet. The sounds don't have a lot of adjustments like the roland sound modules. The sounds are good enough for practice and jamming. pads have good feel. Hi-hat pedal action good. I like the bass drum trigger campared to a lot of other bass drum triggers I see for entry level e-drums. After 300 hours practicing, the cymbals are starting to come apart causing them to make a loud thud sound. I put some tape on them and it took care of it. I havent had any other issue yet. The songs onboard to jam with suck. The metrodome only has a handfull of time signatures. Overall I dig this because I was able to get a lot of practice where before because of the places I lived I couldn't. Also I am pretty sure this whole thing is going to fall apart within the next 6 months. I will just get a new one.

As much as I hate reading negative reviews when searching for products, I would be down-right lying if I said I recommended this product.The high-hat pedal is extremely weak. Even at max volume, I can only hear the high-hat pedal when I'm not playing any of the other drums. In addition, the high-hat cymbal itself won't register anything more thatn 16th notes, and even those will take a prety decent whack of the pads.The rack that these drums come on is shoddy at best, and often wiggles when you play. Moving the set in one piece is nearly impossible, and reassembling the kit takes a very long time, regardles of how many times you've done it. Making it even harder is the fact that the included instruction manual doesn't have any information on setup, so you'll have to do it all by yourself. If you screw up when assembling the kit, you're going to need to take most of the kit apart in order to fix whatever mistake you made.The default volumes of the drum are quite lame, and you'll often find yourself changing the volume of the kit around A LOT. There are few voices for the ride that actually sound like a real ride cymbal, and the volume of the crash cymbal isn't very consistent, so anytime you try to do a roll on the cradh cymbal, half the beats will be quieter than the others.All-in-all, this is not a very impressive kit, and really isn't the best practice tool. I would recommend something a little more expensive, such as a Yamaha DTXplorer or an Alesis DM5 Pro kit.

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

Just because Simmons started the electronic drum craze in 1979.They should have stayed out of business. This is absolute crap. Not worth anything near $. Why companies think they can use another companies name to sell product is beneath me!!! But don't buy this junk its plastic garbage!!!!

Great Set For The Price

By Ace2003-KXxGT

from Cumming, Ga

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

I purchased this set because I needed an inexpensive digital set for my studio. Upon reading the manual I discovered how to get multiple cymbol/hi hat/drum/precussion sounds. Our church recently purchased a Yamaha in the same price range as this one and unlike the SD7K the Yamaha DTX Explorer did not come with any dual zone pads. The only thing is that the MIDI is a little tricky to figure out. You have to program the MIDI recording software to channel 10 and turn off the local sound processor in the module. The really cool part is you can use the internal drum kits and customize and save up to at least 30 different kits not to mention the first 20 that are preprogramed by simmons. Over all if you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to accoustic drums and want a really good kit I would recommend the Simmons SD7K.

E-Drums for the masses

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

For a couple years I have been looking to a silent alternative for practice, but I never felt like laying down a couple grand for a Yamaha or a Roland, nor did would I settle for the cheap Rock Band - style pads. When this product came to a local music store, I bought one of the first ones off of the shelf. It has a ton of quality sounds, and is has better hardware and features than the SD5 kit. This is definitely not a touring kit as it is just too fragile, as the cymbals began to fall apart within days, but is suitable for practice and convincing on recordings. My only real knock on it is that is struggles with 16th notes. I would recommend it.

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

I bought this set because I needed something that I could quickly pack/set up at our church. For that purpose, it works very well. However, this hardly compares to an acoustic set. The crash cymbal only has one sound. The ride has two sounds, but it's almost impossible to tell how to make the drum set choose between the two. The hi-hat does not sound very realistic at all (despite the three different hi-hat sounds). The hi-hat does not pick up anything faster than normal 8th notes very well at all. It's nice to have multiple settings for the overall kit, but only a handful are useful. All in all, this kit is a good value if you absolutely need an electronic set, but it's still nothing compared to an acoustic set or a high-end electronic.

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

First of all, EVERYTHING IS MADE OF PLASTIC NOW!!! So, if you're looking for something made of metal, go buy a drum kit. I bought these as an input device. I don't really know how to play but these were more logical than a full set due to that and a need for quiet recording. The pads trigger well with very little cross-talk. They seem like they will hold up well against regular stick playing. My only issue, as is others issue, is that the kick pad already has a formidable dent in it and I've only had these a week. It continues to react the way it is supposed to but Simmons may wish to reconsider this pad with a stronger material. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase. It is an excellent beginning set as well as a good practice kit. For $600.00 you really can't go wrong. The samples are good quality (but not the best) and they certainly have a wide pallate to chose from.

Simply Amazing

By Andy Brown

from Upstate New York

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

The simmons sd7k is simply amazing for the price. The drum setups are virtually limitless, the pads respond well and it makes recording easy with a simple USB hookup. Although the acoustic noise is a little louder than i would like its still an amazing practice kit for a low price.

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

This set is great for a practice set. Nice and small and lightweight. It sounds good through a PA as ina church setting, and when you play in a church you dont need one that play supper fast or loud. The rack set up like a normal rack, but the plastic connections need to be tightened almost every day, so I was kinda dissapointed with that part.

Good Kit

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

Here is the low down.I got this set for recording and practice. I was very surprised at the response of the pads.I like the custom kits as I use the right rack to and made it a ride and the 2 cymbals both crashes. I played Roland Yamaha alesis and other kits. If you can not afford the Roland then buy this one. The velocity cure is great for getting the HH to sound louder.I liked panning the drums and it Has a very good sound You can hook up a double pedal.

not bad at all

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

while this drum set is not the flagship of any brand, it certainly is a very usable and enjoyable kit. I went to a friends house and played with it for a while, and I liked it. true, I cant comment on the durability, as my experience was limited; but the user friendly brain was exactly that. I am no computer genius, but within 2 minutes i had figured out how to adjust, tune and save a user kit. the pads themselves were nothing special, but nothing to laugh at either. one thing i did not care for was sounds available; while they were certainly decent and usable on stage, probably half of them i would never use to record. but thats alright, because this set fulfills its purpose; to be a cheap, user friendly and fun kit to play with.

I Like It

By Sal

from Silicon Valley, CA

Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

I had never played drums before and wanted to learn. I play a lot of guitar so I figured I could do it myself. I wanted an electronic kit so I wouldn't have to bother roomates and neighbors since I figured I wouldn't be any good. I got this one because it was cheaper than most. This kit has been great though. It sounds just fine for a beginner, and I haven't had any problems whatsoever. There are 50 different kit sounds you can choose from, some pretty similar to most, with small differences, and the interface comes with plenty more options like a metronome (pretty standard) and I'm pretty sure you can even tune the different heads. I haven't explored most of it yet. A great plus with this is it has a bass pad, meaning you get the feel of stomping on a pedal when playing the kick drum... only you have to buy your own pedal since it doesn't come with one. I bought a used $20 pedal... works just fine. I would recommend this kit for beginners!!!
