I compared both Simmons amps with the Rolands in the store. The Simmons amps sounded more solid and had a very dynamic range. It's plenty loud enough for practicing and playing along with music. I can drive my roomates nuts in a fairly large house and make my ears hurt. This amp will not work (and isn't ment) to play live shows, so dont expect to blow windows out with it. I am happy. Try one in the store and you will quickly see how loude the little amp gets.

I am a real customer and want to be very forthcoming. Overall a disappointment. It works fine at low volume, but then it doesn't overcome the tapping on my Roland 15 electronic drums. When I turn it up to a decent level, then the crash and ride cymbals have major distortion - sounds terrible! no longer like music but bad noise. I am replacing this item.

    Comments about Simmons DA50 Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

    Using it as a drum monitor for the Alesis Forge drum kit. Using it for practice in the living room of my house. Initially purchased a different monitor (Behringer Ultratone KT108), but it was not loud enough and did not have a tweeter so the cymbal sounds did not stand out. When DA50 was hooked up, wow, what a difference. The volume knob is set to 50% on both DA50 and my drum unit. Bit heavy especially compared to the other unit.

      Comments about Simmons DA50 Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

      I have a Roland electronic drum kit in my basement. I supplement the drum pads with actual cymbals and high-hat, so I don't really need the high's from the monitor. I run my iPhone into the mix channel of the drum controller. This setup provides great sound from the monitor when at volume settings below about 60%. You start going above that and the lows start to distort badly. Granted at 60% its more than enough to result in my wife pounding on the floor above to "turn it down", which is all any self respecting drummer really wants, to effectively annoy family and loved ones. All in, I am very happy with this monitor. After 2 years I'm ready to move up to "more power" and I'm looking to upgrade to the DA200. I'd buy the DA50 again in a heart beat.

        THis amp. Oh my god. This amp guys. Look, if you're looking for a first amp, this one is highly recommended. Right out of the box, it delivers exactly what it's supposed to. Maybe not for huge shows, but when you know that you need to stick out, this perfect "pint-sized" amp is the way to go. I already have 4 amps in a small room, and this amp is perfectly sized to go anywhere. The volume speaks volumes. Perfect for any situation if this is your very electronic drum amp.

          I use this drum amp with my new Roland TD-11KV-S V-Compact Series Electronic Drum Kit. The sound is awesome for a 50w amp and the price is great. This is a great amp for practicing and jamming in your home.

            Comments about Simmons DA50 Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

            This amp really delivers in sound and quality. I had been using a keyboard amp as I noticed that most drum amps were a bit costly. The keyboard amp was not as good as I thought and I decided to invest in the Simmons DA50 based on the reviews I read. I ordered the amp on line to be delivered at Guitar Center in Bellingham, WA. It was a used amp and it was being shipped from Indianapolis, IN. On the way it got stuck in Wentachee, WA due to a forest fire. After a 4 day delay I picked it up and got it home. I hooked it up to my Simmons set and the sound that came out of the amp was better than my keyboard amp. It was night and day. I have only played it a few times but every time I start playing the sound amazes me. This is a small amp but it is good enough for my needs. The best amp I have ever bought and hopefully it will last for a long time. I am very impressed and recommend it to anyone that is thinking of getting a simple personal use amp.

            Comments about Simmons DA50 Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

            I knew buying this meant I would be getting a highly rated product but I was surprised. I use it for practicing and it performs effortlessly. The lows really thump, my snare now jumps right out compared to my 400.00 headphones I was using, and the cymbals are quite sharp and realistic. I would buy another one in a heartbeat except my neighbors would hate me! If you read this far, you know you want one, just do it!

            Great for in Home use

            Comments about Simmons DA50 Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

            Great little amp for practicing at home. Sound is clear and crisp; no buzz, hum, or distortion. I run a Roland TD-7 through it and it makes it about as loud as an acoustic set; when the amp volume is half way. controls are rubber with little indentations that are about the size of a drum stick head so you can turn the knobs with your sticks and not get up. You won't play any gigs with it but you can certainly bother everyone in the house. Very simple and easy to use,very glad I purchased it.
