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

Affordable but satisfied with performance

By Hocheol

from CA

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.

a little beast!

By Lowell

from Longview, Tx.

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...!!

Mehhhh...

By Rene

from Mile Hi City

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!

Da Bomb!

By George Johnson

from Seattle. WA.

I'm a drummer/vocalist and I'm also sound engineer. I'm a perfectionist and I'm very picky. After trying much more expensive systems including the new Roland CM-220 2.1 CUBE Monitor System which costs $700 and sounds like a cheap car stereo I finally gave this one a try. Not only does this little powerhouse provide a big, phat accurate sound this versatile unit also works equally well as a vocal monitor/small PA due to its excellent sound quality. I would highly recommend this. I'm usually not a big fan of Simmons but with this they hit it out of the park! There is one little problem with it that Simmons should address. The inputs are not quite to spec and some plugs/cords don't make good contact as a result. I remedied the problem by slipping a 1/4in. 'O' ring onto the male plug ends of my cords so they don't go too deep.

This amp hits hard

By randy schmidt

from Fresno ca

I have had this amp for a couple of years now and it has been loud and proud I push this thing to the limit on a regular basis. Highs are a little harsh at times and need to be dialed back but mids and lows are killer. I am only writing this review because I was wondering if Simmons had come out with a new amp during this time I seen a few reviews with people stating they lost the low end on the amp what ever term they use blown burned out. This amp has so much power the voice coil on the woofer will get hot and blow the winding will literally melt and no longer function. The amp has not blown up or been damaged. I have done this twice with my amp and have rewound the voice coil on the woofer the second time I notice the surround has started to crack and will cause the voice coil to rub and give it problems rewound with a little heavier wire repaired the surround cracks and she is hitting harder than even. I have decided the next time to replace the woofer with a quality woofer upgrade I believe it was 8 ohms and a lot of room to put a woofer with a way bigger magnet. So if you lose your bottom end don't panic time for a woofer repair or replacement .

Just What I Needed

By Shawn Saulsberry

from Charlotte, NC

I needed an amp at the last minute to perform at an anniversary celebration 200 miles away from home. I did not want to settle for something that was just inexpensive knowing I would need to perform more. I also did not want to purchase something that was not durable and portable. Need I say that this amp kicked butt! It has awesome power. The horns make the cymbals sizzle and the subs and woofer hit hard. The portability is out of this world. It is a little heavy but the weight is a direct indication of the quality of the product. To top it off, I found this baby for $100 less than the current sale price because I bought a demo. I am so very pleased with this purchase!

Bottom line

By Mark Zatopek

from Waco, TX

I got a deal on a previously owned DA200S from the G.C. Phoenix location. Visited a local store and ALL of their digital drum demo sets and digital cymbal arrays were wired to ONE of these. NUFF SAID? Check it out and see for yourself what this puppy can do. Versatile, powerful, broad spectrum of uses... an all around heavyweight champ (60 lbs), does what a truckload of old school amps, P.A.s, etc. can do. I admit I am not an audiophile, ultra knowledgeable reviewer... but, you owe it to yourself to give this one a test drive.

WOW!

By Thomas Robinson

from Phoenix AZ

I recently bought an Alesis Performance Pad Pro to use at smaller gigs where I didn't feel like dragging around my drums and rack. I tried using the keyboard players' amp but the drums got lost once he started playing too. My Fender Twin Reverb had the volume but sounded bad when I cranked it up (plus I was afraid of blowing my speakers). This amp had great reviews so I thought I would try it. I haven't used a drum amp in years. This has GREAT sound for cymbals and a sub-woofer for the bass and toms. It sounds amazing. The price is great too. Tonight is the first time I'm trying it at a gig. So far, so good!

No regrets

By Dave Tallent

from Elizabeth, CO

I own a Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set. I went without an amp for almost a year, running my kit through my former band's PA. After a gig, another drummer said he hadn't been able to hear my ride cymbal or hi hat through the mix. The kick drum would also drop out due to a sketchy subwoofer. I bought the Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor in November, 2009, ultimately changed bands, and problems solved. Have used it as my rehearsal amp, my stage monitor when the SD9K is plugged into a mixer, and multiple times as my sole amplification at gigs, both in and outdoors. Prefer a mix of electronic and acoustic drums, though I've used the Simmons kit exclusively on several occasions. In either configuration, the monitor is solid. Full, tweakable sound, particularly on the low end. Cuts through any ruckus the guitar players create. Completely satisfied.
