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.

Great Sound, Features and Price!

By Karina Armstrong

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

Awesome sounds and feel
I was skeptical because of the price but the sounds (50 presets) and the feel of the pads are unbelievable. I've actually recorded with this set. You won't believe what you're hearing and feeling. I'm more of an accoustic drum guy but with this set me and my daughter can play all night long without upsetting the neighbors or my thirst for raw sound. You've got inputs, outputs, there's really almost nothing you can't do with it. I'm impressed. You do need to pick out a kick drum pedal but for a little extra, you can add a really good Yamaha chain drive pedal or what every you want.
Great Deal!

Absolutely Amazing

By Steve-MFvPq

from CT

See all my reviews

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

I am extremely pleased with this edrum set. It has a plethora of features that the product description doesn't even mention. One of my favorite unlisted features is the Pan feature that scales how much a pad plays on either speaker. Another favorite feature is that one can tune each of the 300 voices pitches on a 17 pt scale (-8 to +8). Some other unlisted features are input for MP3 player, volume adjustment for each pad, global reverb, and 6 velocity curve selections. My only regret is that I bought it about a month before the free equipment was included in the purchase. Even a strict acoustic drummer can appreciate the realistic acoustic drum voices and the wide variety of electronic sounds that open up entirely new styles of drumming. Buy this drum set!

I have been playing drums for 23 years and this is a must have if you live in a small house with NO practice space (like me) or live in an apartment. This kit has a ton of features, very easy to assemble and user friendly and even works with a double pedal.

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

I think this piece of equipment is amazing for any drummer. Not to spacious, easy to learn, can teach you any style.
Features are awesome. A little tough at first to figure out. That is until you read the instruction manual =O
Great Quality. Everything seems to be in good presentment for the price.
Might as well of been a steal...

Recap

By daynne

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

This is sort of a re-review. This drum set is still pretty good, but since I wrote the first review, I have played a lot of nice ekits. My favorite kit around this price is the Yamaha DTX500K hands down. The only thing that makes this set any better than that is the dual zone snare. Thing is, the Yamaha kit can have up to 4 more pads that could be for cymbals, extra toms, a rim shot/cross stick, or whatever. The sound samples on it sound way better, and the velocity capturing is 100 times more accurate. (The cymbals respond like real cymbals depending on exactly how hard you hit them, not to mention that they actually sound real rather than cheap samples.)
The wires in the cymbals on the sd7pk tend to break, you can open them up and re-solder them, but that gets annoying after a while. (whether or not you hit hard, they WILL still break after a while.) This set is a soooo much better than the sd5k, which I can honestly say was the biggest waste of money that I have ever spent.
By the way, those that have problems with the kick working on this thing, you can change the way that the velocity responds on it. That was the problem with mine. Rather than raising the volume of the kick (which I still recomend) you can make it so it responds by playing louder than it would with a softer hit, if that makes any sense. You hit the Utility button until it says "C" followed by a dash and 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, and 06. Change it to either 4 or 5, while stomping the bass drum, and it should work.

So, this definately isn't as bad as some people have said. But, I would by the DTX500K. It actually sounds and feels like real drums. Hope that helps.

These drums are well worth the money; They feature great rebound, double kick compatibility, a dual-zone snare, and my personal favorite feature: the harder you hit the pads, the different sounds you get. Awesome!

Great Kit

By Michael Selburg

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

If I didn't have to return I would have given a 10
You can do so much on this kit it's incredible. All the sounds you can produce are just amazing
Good quality, would have been a 10 but I had to return for a new kit. The first one the brain didn't work right and the crash symbol would play at odd times even when no one was using the kit.
I paid a low price for a kit valued a lot higher. I played other kits at the higher price range and above and this kit as good or better.

SD7PK

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

Its a sweet kit. The rubber pads are awesome for natural bounce back. the only knock i have on it is that it is a loud kit. The cymbals are the loudest thing because they are made of plastic. i mean they have rubber where you hit, but its not rubber all the way through so its kind of like hitting plastic so its loud. besides that its a sweet kit.
