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

  • Heavy-duty midrange speakers for punchy mid-frequency response
  • Heavy-Duty 12" Down-firing sub-woofer for enhanced bass response (internal)
  • Heavyweight steel grille

  • 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

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.

Had the 200a for about 6 months and notice a noise coming out of amplifier like a crackling noise. Got worse. I found out that Simmon's requires you to work thru the dealer for warranty. I would suggest that the location in California is only a clearing house for Simmons. At any rate the amplifier was completey replaced with a new one eventually but took some time. I am happy with the sound on the 200a and I use it on a set of Roland TD6. I use two amplifiers on is a fender rumble 150 bass amp and the 220a. It is used in a stereo mode. I hope the 2nd Simmons holds up but so far after 7 months things look good. I have read in other reviews the same problem. Was never advised what it actually was. It was just completely replaced with a new amp.

        Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

        Bought the Simmons 200S in April with a Roland electronic drum set for my wife. We are novice drum players and I have a much deeper respect for all you experienced drummers out there. As a so-so guitarist I had respect already. Here we are in November and the amp died. I'm betting the power supply gave it up.
        Hey stuff happens and Simmons and Guitar Center were great. Since it was in year of purchase, Guitar Center took care of this by providing me with a new amp. Painless and very courteous as always.

        As for the amp, I am not an expert, but it sounds great. We plug our music directly in to it and it puts out great drum sounds. While my wife and I are both drum hacks we really have a great time using the DA200S. Easy to use. Sounds great and they stand behind their product. What else can you ask for?

          Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

          To date, we've only been using this amp for practice. We were using a small PA speaker. But switching to this amp, the lows and highs are much more pronounced and the overall sound is much richer. The quality of various drum sounds is greatly improved, over the PA speaker, to sound more like what it's supposed to. We sometimes plug a bass or guitar into the amp for practice sessions. Works ok for clean guitar sounds - would not recommend as a bass or guitar amp. But what it's built for it does well. Should work in small venues. Not sure if it would be loud enough for large venues but you can plug into a PA, so that seems like a no-brainer.

            Arrived damaged during shipment, only a bent grill, which is surprising since the box was nearly destroyed. I'd rather fix it myself than return it for a replacement. Not Musician's Friend's fault.

                  Not only does it sound great, easy to use, solid build with lots of plug in options, headphones extra speakers MP3 players etc etc but it looks cooool.
                  Turned up it will shake the whole house, in fact I've only had it turned up halfway and it rocks great quality.
                  Believe me you won't go wrong buying this.

                  Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

                  I purchased the DA200S for the purpose of amplifying the samples and drum sounds from my Roland SPD-SX when we play at venues with sub-par or no PA systems (we play a lot of house/warehouse/basement shows in Chicago).

                  At first, I was very impressed with the Simmons-- the sound quality was amazing; however, I was a bit concerned with its small size (also, it is surprisingly heavy for it's size, and with only a handle on top it can be a bit awkward to lug around). It reproduced our sounds, samples and sequences with clarity I had not heard before-- we even ran our Prophet 6 synth through it, and it sounded incredible. However, my fears about its small size were realized almost immediately at our first show with it... It was just barely loud enough, struggling to cut over our 5x10 bass cab and other instruments. After two shows with the input and output cranked, the right channel failed.

                  I would say this is a fantastic amp for practice, and for small (club/living room/basement) venues if you are not a loud band. Do not write it off as a keyboard amp-- I thought it sounded better with a synth running through it than anything else. I think its separate internal amplifiers for the different frequency ranges does an impressive job at keeping the sound from getting muddy, even with a lot of sounds being pushed through it. But again, at 200 combined Watts, it's pretty loud, but not loud enough.

                  Another con: the inputs are limited. You get one drum input that is split into left and right channel (left for mono) and a stereo AUX input. Unfortunately, the AUX input is a stereo-only jack, so if you want to run a mono signal into the aux, you need to use a mono-stereo adapter, or you'll only get sound out of one channel... I don't know why they didn't just do R/L input like they used on the drum input.

                  I'm giving it a four star review because it did sound great-- It just wasn't the right amp for us.

                  Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

                  I have owned this amp for 5 years now. It's great for practice and live shows. I run a monitor line to aux input, so I can control my own mix volume. Killer tone and projection. You could knock down the back wall in most rooms with the volume this amp is capable of. I usually play about 1/2 way to keep from killing my bandmates. Line outs give the soundman full control of my house mix volume. Great full range sound. For the money,you won't find a better sounding, more powerful amp. I also own the DA50. It's ok for practice,but lacks the aux in and line out features that make the DA200 so versatile.
