    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.

    Decent set, needs better samples - Simmons SD7PK

    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

    from CA

    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

    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.

    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.

    Recap

    By daynne

    from montana

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Most Excellent

    By Rhonda Childers

    from Spokane WA

    Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

    When I was researching what kit to get, I did a lot of reading and asking of people I know who are much more experienced drummers. I had several people tell me " Simmons would okay for a starter, but if you're serious about drumming, you're gonna want a Roland.".... Pssh. I no longer trust these people. As is my habit, I completely ignored their advice and went with my original desicion. And I can tell you, I honestely don't know what Roland would do in a kit that costs twice as much, that's worth paying twice as much for. The only thing I want more out of this kit, would be a kick drum pedal. And that's just the cheap side of me complaining. Setting it up was pretty easy. I mean, I'm a teenage GIRL and I was able to do it all by myself, guys. Getting everything out of the box and ready to play in about an hour. And I was taking my time. I'm still wary of the fact that it is electric, and therefore ( as is my reasoning) a lot easier to break or have it start malfunctioning. But so far everything seems sturdy, the response on the pads is great. I've had some time with an acoustic set before, and when I was buying it came down to this, or a cheaper ddrum acoustic set, and I'm quite happy I went with this one.
    There had been some complaints about the quality of the sample sounds, but I am perfectly happy with them. You get everything from timpani to jingle bells and they all sound really great. Granted, some of us may not care about all the fancy noises it can make and just wanted an acoustic but had to go with the electric because of " noise" issues. Don't worry, there are several fanastic acousitc kit sounds to choose from. Just because you won't use all the extra stuff doesn't mean this kit isn't worth buying. I don't think anything is really lacking. Especially if you have a good amp for them to get good quality sound projection.

    Amazing drumset for beginners

    By Brandon Erickson

    from Monticello, AR

    Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

    Overall, I think I did pretty good buying this set. Sounds great on recordings when jamming, and it has a great feel to it too.
    I love the fact that it has the sensitivity on the pads for different dynamic ranges.
    The quality is amazing, yes it could be better, but its a great kit to start out on.
    I paid 480, and i must say it was very well worth it. The only issue I have with it was that it didnt come with a kick pedal. But otherwise it is great!

    Somewhat decent, not quite as I'd hoped.

    By Bradley Allen

    from Michigan

    Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

    I know they prefer short reviews here, but this is lengthy to give what I think are important details. I ordered the SD7PK primarily for recording in a home studio on a budget, based on all the positive reviews I saw here. I haven't had it long and I'm sure there's much tweaking to do, but there are a few issues. The hi-hat pedal is either open or closed. There seems to be no in between. I have yet to find the other zone in the snare. I've seen other comments about this elsewhere. You hit the snare anywhere, you get the same sound. The biggest issue for me is the MIDI. I don't know that anyone would want to use the built-in sounds for recording, so the MIDI capability is important. But (and it's a big but), something's up with the mapping and so far I haven't been able to find a solution. Hit the snare, it sends a snare signal. Hit anything else and you get either a ride or a crash. Not much of a set if it consists only of a snare and a bunch of identical ride and crash cymbals. I've seen posts elsewhere (again) where people have gotten it all to work except the hi-hat, but I'm still stumped. So, if you want this for MIDI, be warned - it's gonna take some work. Overall I'd rate this as a cheap practice set or an expensive toy. As for Musicians Friend, I wouldn't hesitate to order form them agan. Great company to do business with.
    Generally good, if limited. Not being able to afford top of the line Roland or Yamaha stuff, it's mostly adequate. Would be nice if there was an option for another crash, rather than having the same crash sound all the time. Doesn't appear to be expandable with additional pieces, so what you get is all you get. The built-in drum sounds are mediocre, but I don't think anyone expects much from them anyway. Would be nice if there were some drier, more natural sounds, instead of a few reverb-laden cheesy kit sounds and then a bunch of other useless sound effects. As it is, what's built in reduces this set to slightly above toy level. A shame, since the MIDI capability is a joke from what I can tell so far (read on...)
    Physically, the quality is quite good. Lightweight but solid. I don't feel like it's going to fall over or have anything fall off while I'm playing. Reasonably good action on the pads - they're not real drums but for pads they have a good feel. The frame, while small, can be opened enough to let you spread everything out and not feel crowded, which allows for some flexibility in placement, and things stay where you put them. Overall, it's a comfortable kit. The electronics couldn't be easier to hook up, so it takes almost no time to unpack and set everything up. The brain itself seems a bit low-budget, but it''s a low-budget set so that's not a surprise. It actually works quite well.
    If you compare the cost of this to the higher end brands, and you know you'll then get what you pay for, it's a good value. If, like me, you think the price should be more than enough to get you something really good, you'll be disappointed. The price of even the cheapest electronic kits is ridiculous. That said... if you want great, save your money and go with something else.

    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!

    Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

    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

    The drum teachers at my music school like this kit very much

    from Toronto, Canada

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

    Like I said above, my overall rating will come in when I see it lasts well over a number of years.
    I own a music school in Toronto Canada and bought this kit for the students to use in lessons every day. I recognize Simmons as the brand of those hexigoncial e-drum kits from the eighties because I have a set. I read a couple of reviews that said this kit can "take a beating" and that's what I needed and the price on Musician's Friend here was better than great.

    The drum teachers are very happy with the new kit, they are saying that it is "awesome". When I ask how it sounds, they say "awesome" again, they are very happy with it. These are experienced pro drummers with BA's in percussion so if they say the kit is awesome, then it must be. It sounds pretty good to me, too and looks great.
    The true test will be how it stands up over the years, I'm hoping to get 10 years out of it before the pads start to konk out. With my last kit which was Roland, the kick pad was the first to go and needed to be replaced after about 8 years, but it was circa 1998 so I'm optimistic about this new set.
    The price I got on this site is a dream come true for a business woman on a budget like me, I was able to get a nice quality brand new kit that the teachers are really happy with and spent half of what I thought I'd have to.

    Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

    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!!
