Overview

The Simmons DA200S houses a 100-watt low-frequency amp with two 50-watt mid- and high-frequency amps. The low-frequency amp powers a heavy-duty 12" down-firing sub-woofer speaker and a specially designed slot port for bottom-end projection. Left and right mid- and high-frequency amps drive 2-6-1/2" mid-range speakers and 2-1/2" high-frequency tweeters.

The DA200S maintains the integrity of the stereo drum signal from input to speakers (including line outs and extension speaker jacks). This provides a broad stereo field that positions your drums at their correct sonic locations, providing a realistic audio experience for you and your audience, whether you're in the studio or playing live.

Features
  • General features
  • Soft touch knobs (adjustable with your drum stick)
  • Ribbed handle for easy transport
  • Protective, long-lasting carpet covering
  • High-frequency tweeters for cymbal clarity
  • Heavy-duty midrange speakers for punchy mid-frequency response
  • Heavy-Duty 12" Down-firing sub-woofer for enhanced bass response (internal)
  • Heavyweight steel grille
  • Slot-port for enhanced cabinet with efficiency and bottom-end projection
  • Front panel features
  • Drum Inputs: 1/4" input jacks (left and right)
  • Aux Input: 1/4" stereo jack used for connecting any pre-EQ source such as a click track, additional digital instruments, devices, drum pad MPC machines, etc.
  • Drum Volume to control the volume level of the Drum Inputs to the power amplifier
  • Aux Volume to control the volume level of the Aux Input
  • Equalization section with low, mid, and high knobs to control the overall tone
  • Sub controls the volume of the low frequency sub-woofer
  • Master: This controls the overall volume of the amplifier
  • Line In: 1/8" stereo line input which bypasses the EQ tone controls and feeds straight into the power amplifier, perfect for using CD or MP3 players to play along with
  • Headphone Jack: 1/8" stereo output jack which combines all inputs from your drums, Aux Input, and Line In for monitoring your drums during live performances
  • Back panel features:
  • Left and Right Line Outs: balanced XLR Line Outs provide quiet, noise-free signal flow through a standard mic cable or snake to a recording or live console
  • Volume Control for Line Outs: completely independent from the Master volume on the front panel, allowing you to set your feed level to a mixing console
  • Ground Lift: to eliminate hum or buzz that may exist if there is a ground loop created between any stage gear and the PA system

I bought this amp to go with my Roland TD-3KW, and it is an extremely good product. This speaker is significantly louder than the smaller 50 watt version, and it also contains a 12" subwoofer, which makes the amp sound far superior even at low volumes. It is also quite a bit larger than the 50 watt so do not be fooled by the pictures. Very good product.

Hi!! I bought this drum amp (Simmons DA200S) brand new from G.C. a few months ago. My set is an Alesis DM10x. I never crank the volume up very loud and never have. At times when I hit the bass drum, I get a popping sound from the speaker. What the heck?!!? I never have changed my bass drum setting on the drum module, so I am not sure why I am getting this popping noise. Besides the popping, the amp does sound pretty good. I was hoping it would produce an even lower sound because I would like to "feel" the kick more. Today I added a 12" non-powered speaker to it hoping that I could get more of a kick.....so that I could hopefully "feel" it. Nope, didn't do the trick. This amp gets a 3 from me due to the popping sound, and the low end just doesn't quite cut it for me. Don't get me wrong, it is a good amp...the sounds are great....but if it could go even lower then it does, that would be awesome. Maybe a 15 inch subwoofer would do the trick. Oh well.... Time to call G.C. to see what I can do in regards to get the popping fixed. Thanks for reading this! -M

        I purchased this amp for my new Roland TK-20 for practice in my house. This amp is amazingly clear compared to it's cheaper one speaker counterpart. The cymbals sound very natural and the thump from my kick has enough bass to feel it like a real drum kit. Spend the extra money to get this model, you won't regret it.

              I have had roland monitors before to go along with my roland kits and never got the sound quality like I would from my headphones. This monitor does the job! Great quality sound, crisp and clear, much easier to get the sound your looking for and powerful. Highly recommend!

                This is a great little amp. I have a Yamaha DTXtreme III and it sounds great through the amp. The separate sub control allows you to dial in the right amount of low end for the bass drum and toms. It will also run multiple instruments at once. My guitarist ran his acoust-electric Martin through it and it sounded amazing. He used the aux. input and had control over his own volume levels. This would be great for small gigs where we don't have room to set up all of our regular equipment.

                Pros: only beatable drum monitor against roland PM series. Enough loudness, rich bass tone Cons: Heavy, humming noise at higher volume and wih line jack input. - Manual should describe the detailed spec for extention speaker - Website for customer service is slow and poor response.

                Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

                I originally ordered a used Simmons DA200S amp/monitor from the Guitar Center Used Gear site, and somewhere during delivery, the package was somehow badly damaged, and was sent back to the store I originally ordered from...I then called the store to let them know it was headed back their way (because I had been tracking it via UPS tracking) The manager of that store was MORE THAN GENEROUS to offer me the same amp (NEW from their warehouse at the SAME PRICE as the damaged old USED one!!!!)When it arrived, I cranked it up to find out I had a LITTLE BEAST on my hands....(this monitor/amp got the police called 10 minutes into my solo)....Well, all I can say is HAT's OFF to Guitar Center, for their generosity, and HAT'S OFF to Simmons for making the DA200S capable of delivering a booming low , a mellow (BUT LOUD) midrange, and crisp, distinct highs...also, the inputs/outputs are ready-to run through any P.A. system...It would compliment and broaden the sound of ANY electronic set, and I would recommend this for any use, whether it be a church or a rock venue, and would recommend the Simmons DA200S monitor/amp to ANY drummer...!!

                Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

                I bought one, and it was defective. There was a buzzing noise even when the volume and eq was all the way down with nothing else plugged in to it... Tried different wall outlets but no change. I did get sound out of it but let me say I was not impressed. There's not enough low end punch to it even with the bass and sub cranked up. I don't know I guess I got all hyped up with all the 5 star reviews on here... One thing though... I don't know if it didn't perform as it should because of the buzzing issue... the GC guy said that's the amp they used in the drum off the night before and it sounded awesome. With my luck I guess I got a bad one lol. I returned it a week later with no receipt because it took a ride in the wash cycle but that was no problem for the GC guy. Excellent service as always GC!
