Overview

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.

Features
  • SD1000 Sound Module with 99 drum kits, 516 voices, 210 presets and 100 user songs
  • Advanced V.A.R. technology for authentic response
  • Expanded sample ROM
  • S1000 series pads
  • Multi-position hi-hat foot controller
  • Programmable sequencer with a 7-track capacity
  • MP3, USB and MIDI connectivity
  • 128MB of memory
  • SD Card for external storage

I bought this set, yes because it was on sale, but also because drumming is my passion. I also have a 2 year old and a full time job aka NO PERSONAL TIME. Nap time = Drum time! These have amazing pitches and the dual zone cymbals are amazing. The 3rd tom has multi-zone so the rim actually doubles as a mini splash and other sound effects. You can full customize your own set, plug your phone into the back of the brain and headphones to the front and jam to your favorites from back in the day. Quality is 10 for 10. The heads are rubberized and have an amazing feel to them along with the hi-hats and cymbals. The set does not come with a throne or kick pedal so be aware of that. I actually preferred that though, it allows you to get your oh style instead of a generic set. Setup took about 20 minutes by myself and I was jammin in no time! If you're thinking about getting the set I'd say its worth every cent!

The looks and price of this kit seem attractive, but I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you like carrying huge boxes back and forth from the store. In my experience, the kit sounded fine for a week or two after purchase. Then the pads started breaking down one by one. A cymbal pad would cut out entirely. Then you'd get the dreaded crossover whereby you hit a tom pad but hear the snare drum. Then another cymbal pad (or a specific zone) would go out, etc. Very soon, the kit was unusable. So overall, the quality of this e-kit is simply absent. Guitar Center staff was great to work with in replacing the defective kit under warranty, but after having to do so TWICE, I gave up on this manufacturer.

Great kit!!!

Comments about Simmons SD1000 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

This is my first drum kit and it is amazing! When we bought the kit we bought a 2 year warranty. The warranty covers anything that you do to the kit. I mean you can blow it up and it will be replaced. So far the only problem I have had with the kit is my hi-hat. Called simmons and in 3 to 4 days I had a new hi-hat and my door. This kit has a lot of awesome features... you just have to learn how to work them. I also bought the simmons DA50 speaker and it has an amazing sound. It also gives me the option to plug in a mp3 to play along with. Over all I would recommend this kit to anyone!!!

    Old drummer

    By Bob Drabik

    from Avondale Arizona

    Comments about Simmons SD1000 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

    I've been considering buying a set of electronic drums for at least 10 years. They are only for my enjoyment. I hook up my laptop for songs I enjoy to play along with. The only negative I've encountered is the high-hat pedal. It doesn't have enough of an adjustment for simple playing. I'll contact the factory to see what I can do. But, overall, as a fun set to play I truly can't ask for more! As a young kid I had a Ludwig set of drums emulating the type of the time. Late 60's early 70's. The sounds these provide are pretty cool! I would definitely recommend this set to the folks that know how to play and would like some new things to fool around with!

    Comments about Simmons SD1000 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

    What is the Simmons sd1000? First it looks awesome and plays alot better than the old kits.I`m running it through a behringer 1202-fx and a harbinger 15" p.a. The sounds are great i like the V.A.R to plus the hi-hat pedal.I did upgrade it with the 3-zone ride and 11" snare 3-zone .The ride i had to take back the bell didn`t trigger the new ride works great the snare felt and responded great.I like the features it has also it packs a punch for your money . Please get a good costumer service for this new 2 year warranty you are offering . Hopefully i want need them.The new Simmons get one its better than the old Simmons.

    Breaks down to often

    By ALEX QUINTANILLA

    from Euless, Texas

    Comments about Simmons SD1000 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

    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

    By Tom C

    from NH

    Comments about Simmons SD1000 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

    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.

      Comments about Simmons SD1000 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

      This is a great product. I saw a review where somebody said "I hit hard, and this thing stopped working". you don't have to hit hard at all, just up the volume and it's great. So many ways to change the sounds, great for recording or playing live. The buttons work great too. If i had to bring this to a show all I do is lift it up, and bring it to the show. It's so much easier to move than a real drumset, and this is better than a real drumset because it's over 500 sounds to make your own set. Easy to use.

      Simmons SD 1000 EDK

      By Michael A Washington

      from Tacoma WA.

      Comments about Simmons SD1000 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

      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.
