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

    The Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Kit is the next step up from the popular SD7K, with the expanded functionality and sequencing capabilities that capture the essence of the electronic drum realm at an affordable price.

    Upgraded features
    The pads feel incredibly life-like, with over 700 realistic sounds and an expressive hi-hat. The bass drum pad accommodates a double pedal. With a dual-zone snare pad, dual-zone cymbals with choke capability, 40 preset kits and space for 59 user kits, the SD9K delivers state-of-the-art electronic sounds with USB connectivity at an unbeatable price.

    Lay it down and play it back
    No matter what style you play, you owe it to yourself to explore the world of recording and sequencing possibilities that this electronic kit offers. With its 110 preset songs and 100 user songs you will never get bored of practice while playing along or creating your own songs. It also features a built-in metronome that has a range of 30-280 bpm's (beats per minute).

    Imagine the possibilities
    The Simmons SD9K 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 SD9K 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.

    This Simmons Electronic Drumset comes with an industry leading 2-Year Manufacturer's Warranty.

      This is one solid kit for the money. Everyone bashing this kit and saying "buy a Roland" must have way too high of an expectation. I've owned 2 Roland TD-3's ganged together to mimick my double bass kit, and it was nice. Roland is definately a high quality kit by all means, but in all honesty, they dont sound or play any better than my SD9K. As a matter of fact, my Simmons offers many more tuning options than Roland has... hands down. The Simmons kit offers all the options of a Roland, but then offers a wide spectrum of tuning capabilities. Lets get straight on this... I'm comparing a TD-4 to the SD9K, both are comparatively priced. The Simmons offers 4 toms, the TD4 only 3. The Simmons offers 2 extra aux trigger inputs to expand the kit, Roland...none. The quallity of the pads are identical, same rebound, sensetivity, etc. Roland has no volume control for an MP3 input, Simmons does. Roland uses standard straight rack tubing, Simmons uses the much user freindly Curved tubing. I've owned and played both kits extensively...honestly, I love the sound and feel of the Simmons, and the price as well! If your reading reviews to base your purchase of an electric kit, this is an un-biased review, both kits are great, having owned and played both I'm just telling it like it is. Dont hesitate to part with the money for the Simmons... their great drums!

      I bought this in 2009 without doing much, if any, research. I just wanted a smaller electronic set I could use in my small house. Within the first 6 months I had to have two cymbals and on drum pad replaced. The drum pad's thumb screw broke and both cymbals started to seperate. The drum module had to be replaced also. After the warrenty was up, I had to take apart the module to re-solder some bad connections. I ended up replairing all the cymbals using small nuts and bolts to hold them together.
      Now that all those issues have been fixed, I can still use it both at home and in the church band I am in. Dispite the issues I had, it is not that bad of a set providing you are not heavy-handed.

      Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

      I can't speak for those of you that have had a less than stellar experience with this kit as I can obviously only speak for myself.

      But speaking for myself I can say that I'd purchase these again. In fact, I was going to purchase another kit however it appears they are no longer available. Too bad for me and expecially for you. And you could've picked these up for MUCH less than the advertised price. You snooze, you loose.

      I've owned or played many of the 'other' kits at five times the cost and these Simmons so far can keep the pace. Besides, I got an extended warranty which takes me into 2017 ( way beyond the life expectancy of Planet Earth ) so I'm not concerned. In two years I'll sell for what I paid, including the transferable warranty and be on my way into the New World Order. See you on the other side. Wake up before it's too late!

      Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

      This drumset far surpased my expectations. Others have given it poor reviews and I completely disagree. I play on a Roland set with the mesh heads and I have this one at home in my studio. They are both amazing. Once you configure the sd9k correctly you can fix the stock sensitivity and crosstalk. Read the manual! I have rocked this set very hard and the cymbals hold in there just fine. The drums themselves are very balanced and sensitive to touch.

      Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

      When I purchased these drums, I could have gone up to $2000.00 dollars with the budget I was on. I needed a set for my small recording studio, and wanted electric as opposed to accoustic. Being a guitar player, and just a novice drummer. I took a great playing drummer with me to GC, in order to get a true expert opinion. After looking and playing the more expensive Roland, we then tried out the Simmons. With my back to the amp being used for the sounds of both Roland and Simmons. Both brands sounded really good, and I couldn't tell the difference. If anything, the bass & tom toms on the Simmons sounded better. Even though I could have gone higher in price, I try to spend my money using wisdom. The only complaint, and the reason I only gave it 4 stars. Simmons should have made the frame larger due to the numer of drums and symbals in this kit. However, this is a small issue and doesn't really effect me that much. Since I'm from the old school, I don't think any electric drums will replace the sound of accoustics in live situations. When recording, it's much easier to mic one amp, than use several mics to record accoustics. There are 40 presets, but you can throw several out the door. Nevertheless, this is a great set of electric drums that I'm still learning what all they can do. With a 2 year warrany, and dollar for dollar. This is a great set of drums with some great sounds. The construction seems to be well made, and if they go bad it will normally be within the first two years which will be covered by the warranty. Oh yes. I also purchased an additional warranty from GC which I suggest to do on any purchase you make over $500.00 dollars.

        Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

        Having a small recording studio I had to have a set of drums. It should be noted that I could have purchased any set I wanted, since money was not an option. However, I am very careful on what I spend my money on. After looking at the Rolands, and other models, this one caught my attention. While my main instrument is the guitar, I do know how to play the drums. Nevertheless, I got a true drummer to play each set I looked at. Dollar for dollar, beat per beat, this set came out on top both in value and little differeance if any in sound. There was no way I was going to pay $7000.00 dollars for the high end Roland, and their set that was around $1.300.00 dollars didn't impress me enough to pay the difference. One thing I do know about any type of instrument, since I have 13 high priced guitars, and 7 well known tube amps. Any piece of equipment can be broken if abused by it's user. If you are a person who beats the hell out of your drums, DON'T BUY THIS SET, NOR ANY OTHER ELECTRIC DRUMS. Those of you who thnk that the drums should over power everything, then you are stuck on yourself. Because of this, you need to purchase accoustic drums with large expensive cybols so you can beat your drums to death. I wouldn't suggest these be used by metal players, since playing loud seems to be the main goal. Other than that, this is a great set of drums for those who play classic rock, country, R&B, & MOTOWN.

          I learned the drums on an acuostic set, and got used to the feel of playing on them. Transistioning from an acoustic set to this electronic set took time, but I am getting it now. But not having to annoy the neighbors and my family when playing the drums is a plus, and playing with the different sounds in the kit is lots of fun.

          Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

          Keeping it short and simple, and brutally honest.I've seen other reviews saying the same thing I'm going to say, Get a Roland.I've owned this kit For Six Months and BOTH of my crash cymbals are cracked, pieces missing, and do not work at this point.The bass Drum Module that this comes with is very loud, and honestly does not feel good at all, Very stiff, no bounce back. I replaced it with a Roland KD8.Do you hit your Toms hard? Then your out of luck, When ever I hit my toms My cymbals Ring out as well. I've tried everything and found it un-fixable.I spent One Grand on this kit, What took me a while to save up. To be honest, it was a Huge disappointment, and I ended up buying a Roland TD 4S For the same price, and its quality is incredibly superior in Every Aspect.Why would I make this up, I'm trying to save you from the same mistake I made. Stick with the Roland, You'll be happy you did, especially for the same price.Quality Over quantity

          Decent Set

          By CBOne

          from Austin

          Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

          After wanting the Yamaha DTXpress IV Special and going to buy it only to find that they had no racks for the kit, only the pads and module, I got this one. I actually got the SD9KR which is the red version that Simmons put out. It looks really nice and the module far exceeds the rest of the kit. For a grand, I would at least expect a mesh head snare. Yeah, you get the extra tom and cymbol, but it's hardly an even trade. Overall the sounds are decent. The kick is louder than it needs to be. The ride cymbol needs to be a little louder, but maybe that's just me. The kit is easy to set up and the features that the module offer are excellent. Now if Simmons could just work on the pads, making them a little....ok, a lot better, they would have a real contender for Roland. Until then, this kit is just a budget kit for the novice player who wants to beat on something.

          from Philly PA

          Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

          I would like to start this review with a huge Sigh.I wish I got a roland...First off for any people looking to play Double Bass, The kick drum that comes with this is basically a piece of metal. Its terribly hard to keep steady on with NO bounce back. Its also very loud.Where to next? Both my crash cymbals have fell apart which I've had to make shift fix(After 3 months of use) The Choke feature in these cymbals are just not good, Mine messed up and would choke on random so I had to go in and rip out the choke strip just not to go insane...Pads are Pads, They feel fine, The module Is great, I enjoy the sounds. But for money you could spend on this get a roland. YES you get 1 more pad with this, one more cymbal, But its quality that countsI regret buying this kit so bad... So many frustrating nights throwing my sticks against the wall.With a roland you will get a nicer kick PLUS a mesh Snare pad... No please, Listen to me like I should have listened to my friend, Roland is the way to go friends, I promise you this.
