An top-end 5-piece e-kit with a bevy of voices and sounds, pro features and extensive connectivity.
The Simmons SD1000 is a 5-piece electronic drum kit that appeals to the senses of the seasoned drummer, while appealing to the budget of the working or hobbyist musician. The setup is powered by the SD1000 Sound Module, which features 99 drum kits (55 preset, 44 user), 516 voices, 210 songs and a large collection of classic sounds. The module is also loaded with rehearsal tools like a programmable metronome, an auxiliary input (for MP3 or otherwise), 10 trigger inputs and a headphone output for quiet rehearsal.
The pads offer a sensitive and authentic feel while V.A.R. (Variable Attack Response) provides realistic response by triggering different samples for different velocities and drum rolls. Variable Attack Response combines more internal memory and intelligent sample triggering across 4 different velocity zones for each trigger input. The result is natural dynamics, smooth decay times which eliminates artificial-sounding “machine gun” playback or ghost notes when playing rolls. Additionally, the multi-position hi-hat foot controller produces different responses for open, closed or half-open positions.
The Simmons SD1000KIT features all-new Simmons components: SD1000 sound module, eight S1000 Series pads, new multi-position hi-hat controller, and a sharp looking, anodized-blue aluminum rack. If a big kit is your style, this e-kit is compatible with all S1000 single or multi-zone pads.
