        I got mine as a "used, mint condition" model from MF. Had I not seen the used one available, I might've gone back to the store where I first saw it. And the product is exactly what I've been needing. Plugged it into my Mac and it's plug and play with Logic Pro. Very happy about purchase.
        I'm not a features guy. I'll never use 3/4 of the features on this thing probably. The module interface is no paragon of intuitive design, but it seems easy enough to learn.
        Seems solid. I'd checked it out in a store previously, so I knew what I was getting. It's very lightweight, but well-engineered, though not elegant by any means. But you can get it planted solid and it seems plenty sturdy. I'm not going to be be bashing the crap out of it, though. And I would have no reservations about using it in a live sitch. I'm not having any problems with the kick pedal sliding, not yet at least. As far as the quality of the sounds, some of these people need to take a pill. I've found several kit sounds that would be perfectly adequate for practicing with headphones. Other than that, I don't need the sounds, as I'm recording straight in from USB and using my software sounds.
        As noted in the title. Doesn't have the nice touch of one of those Rolands with fabric heads, nor the same quality look and feel, but hey, it does exactly what I need it to do and it seems sturdy enough to last for a while.

        Overall, this is a pretty good set especially for the price. I could have asked for a lot better features, but then again, I'm not paying for the top of the line set. Most of the samples are awful, but at least you can hook it up to your computer and use the set to trigger the midi notes and do your own sampling.
        The downside to this set is the drum module. It was easy to navigate and all, but the samples kill me. If you like big 80's sounds then this could be your drum module. Fortunately, you are able to save your own kits by putting together the drums that you want. However, with only 300 samples to choose from you are severely limited, especially when most of those voices are just throwaway if you want something that sounds almost real.
        You are able to hook it up to your computer though. I was able to hook it up to fruity loops and record midi notes (via USB) pretty well. The downside to this is the drum module will not output both midi via USB and sound to your amp/monitor.
        One other annoyance (that I think a lot of kits have) is the kick pad. It is fine if you use a single kick pedal, but if you use a double-kick pedal, then you will have to make some serious customizations to the volume of each drum. I had to turn the kick up to 32 (the highest setting) and most of the other voices to 8-13 range to get the thing to sound almost right. The good thing though, is that the pad width supports a double-kick pedal. Just expect making customizations to individual pad volumes if you go this route.
        Bottom line is, I sold the module part of the kit and purchased the Alesis DM10 which has a lot more realistic sounds and better features. This module is not bad if you just want to practice to get better at drums, it's not particularly great sounding for anything else though (i.e. live/band practice) unless, of course, you are in a peter gabriel cover band.
        The pads/cymbals work great. Also, the stand that holds everything together was extremely easy to put together and set up. Half of the stand was preassembled right out of the box. The only reason I am giving the quality a low rating is due to the poor samples on the module.
        This is definitely on the low end of eletric drum sets. You are not a lot of money to have the best of the best. The value is pretty good for what you are paying. It serves it's purpose for the price 1) Electric Kit, 2) Midi support, 3) Good eletric pads (some of which are even dual zone), 4) Support for headphones if needed.

        Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

        I am not a drummer, so this set was perfect for me. My wife bought it for me for Christmas because it was inexpensive, had a small footprint, had lots of stuff to hit, and would be quiet if I stayed up late and wanted to make a lot of noise (I can use headphones and she can't hear me). All in all, two years later and I have had zero problems. I still can't play drums but they have a small footprint, lots of stuff to hit and are quiet when I want to stay up late. I can see how they would easily fit into a start up band, be great for beginning drummers or perfect for someone to have at home and play along with their favorite band. Would I recommend them to a friend...only a MUSICIAN FRIEND LOL

        Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

        This set was fairly cheap, but you really do get what you pay for. Unless your content to practice without turning the machine on, this set will be a disappointment at any price. Aside from the lack of sensitivity in the snare and the flat sound the machine produces, what made it completely unusable to me was that fact that when you strike the high-hat and snare at the same time it cancels out the snare. For someone like me, who is fairly new to drumming, that is really distracting and annoying. That issue alone disqualifies it for use as a starter set or even a practice set. I had a friend tell me once that you can't buy a cheap guitar when you're just learning because the sound won't reward you and encourage you to keep practicing. I would say the same holds true for electronic drum sets. I sent this set back and picked up a Yamaha DTX520K. I've only had it a few days but already it is a far more enjoyable experience.

            Bang for your buck. 9/10. Some of the samples could be better though(mainly cymbals). Good amount of features; you can tune each sample higher or lower, pan/volume control for each trigger, so many samples to choose from, double bass works well, and all pads have a little kick back which is GREAT! Awesome buy if it's first electric kit or looking for something thats not $1000+.

              I had issues at the start of my correspondence with them. but they came through and restored my confidence in them. I will continue to purchase my lights sound and instruments through musicians friend. they are still my musical friend. this is not a paid endorsement

              Snare drum trigger issues

                    After reading all the great reviews for this kit, I thought it would be a great investment. I was really happy when the kit showed up a few days after ordering it. Set up was easy and fast. Then the problems started.
                    I noticed right away that the snare wouldn't sound when hitting the hi-hat at the same time. At first I thought maybe I was not hitting the center of the pad, as I'm used to my acoustic kit, but then it would not sou.d like every other hit and I was watching to be sure I was hitting the snare dead on. I adjusted the snare and hi hat setting to no avail.
                    I put it back to factory settings and unplugged the snare from the brain and the hat.......then the snare worked every time, but when hitting the hat, it made a faint tom sound even though it wasn't plugged into anything!! Then, I noticed if I was to hit the snare at the same time I hit anything else, no snare sound!!
                    I contacted Musicians Friend and they were more than happy to help!! They offered to replace it at once and I was so displeased with the Simmons, I asked if I could upgrade to the Roland TD-9K2. No problem!! So, I now have the Roland kit and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Roland line!! The kit I got was triple the cost, but worth every penny!! The quality is so much better!! You can see it, feel it and hear it!! No issues what so ever! Ordered an extra crash cymbal, something you can't do on the Simmons, and it just love the Roland kit!!
                    I hope this helps, and maybe I just got a defective kit, but whatever it was, I highly recommend Roland and Musicians Friend!!

                      I purchased this drumset for my boyfriend for Christmas - he didn't have room for his acustic set anymore and I could tell he really missed playing the drums. I didn't have a huge amount to spend, so this set worked out great. He was very impressed with the set - when I asked him to guess how much it was he said he thought it was at least seven hundred. He was so shocked that I got it for much lower than that! So all in all, a great purchase for his uses - a smaller set with controlled sound and lots of fun settings :) .

                        I haven't sat behind a drumset in 20 years, and thought this would be a perfect way to start again. Overall, I am pleased. The drums have an authentic sound, the whole kit takes up little space, and I won't be driving the neighbors nuts with noise. The only drawback is the cymbals. If you were going to play this out anywhere, you would probably want to get rid of the electronic ones, and replace them with real cymbals. But it's a perfect kit for me to dink around on and relearn the drumset. Five stars!

                        Very satisfied with this purchase, Thank you.
                        I ordered this kit so that I could have something that fits into my efficiency apartment, and could be adjusted as far as volume goes. The size is perfect and the control panel is great and gives you many options of sound and volume to play with.
                        I bought this to learn on, as I'm a bass player, and so far it feels as close to an acustic kit as I imagine one could get. I'd give this product a 10, but I've yet to hook everything up to my computer and test it from there.
                        I set this up last night, plugged everything in and I have to say, there was only the slightest wear on the bass drum pad, and that was it. The frame and mounts are adjustable to position the toms and cymbals to your preferred heights. I wouldnt recommend this to anyone over 6' though. The box was missing the drum key, but it's nothing I couldn't adjust on my own. Very nice set and completely worth the money. I would recommend this to friends. Infact, I have already:-)
                        I would be a little more satisfied if the frame was able able to be made to sit just a little bit higher.. any shorter and it'd be uncomfortable. I'm 5'9" but with the right height throne to sit on, I'm content with everything as is
