A 5-piece e-kit with an assortment of sounds, pro features and connectivity options.

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.

  • SD1000 Sound Module with 99 drum kits, 516 voices, 210 presets and 100 user songs

  • Breaks down to often

    As reviewed by ALEX QUINTANILLA on 1/5/2014

    The only thing that saves this kit from a 1 star is the fact that you can make your own drum kit and you can adjust the pads where you want them. Other then that, not worth the money. When I first got the kit, there was a piece missing, and no coord to connect my module to my computer. 2nd, The cymbal pads are constantly breaking on me (just simple stop responding) and the tom and kick are headed in that direction also, not to mention I've already had my module replaced. and I'm exactly the heaviest hitter either. If you could save up for a better kit, or just avoid this one, I would.

  • Would be a fine kit if the pads lasted more then 2 day's

    As reviewed by Tom C on 4/23/2014

    I bought this kit because I didn't want to spend $1000 plus for the amount I use them and they sounded OK in the store. I got it home, played for a couple of hours night 1, fine tuned the triggers and got it to work OK, not great. The high hat is just terrible and you have to really change the way you play to get it to do what it should. Even then the sound quality is like a poor MP3 on the high hat. The Tom's, bass and snare sound very good. The rim on the snare however sounds terrible in just about every mode. The following night I played for another 2 hours and the ride just died. I swapped cables to verify it was the ride itself and it was. After a web search it seems this is very common which is too bad. I liked the setup, it gave me infinate positioning possibilities and could live with the sound for the price. I'm returning because if I lost 1 pad in 4 hours, I cannot imagine what it would be like after a year of ownership.

  • Simmons SD 1000 EDK

    As reviewed by Michael A Washington on 4/6/2013

    Yes I just brought the Simmons SD1000 electric Drum kit on 3/28/13. And I give it four stars I like it so far. I upgraded from SD7 and the only problem I have with this kit so far is the crosstalk ability. I am still trying to learn this function other than that I am satisfied with my new SD1000 I would recommend it to any drummer or drummers to be. I like that it have choke ability on the cymbal pad. Along with the SD1000 A got the Simmons DA50W drum amplifier Sounds good.
