I recently purchased this at the Danbury, CT location. I had been watching sale prices online and when I saw what I was interested in I went and checked them out. I've purchased quite a bit from them (and other Guitar Center in years passed locations) so they have a vague idea of what I am looking for. Every employee has helped me out to thei best of their abilities, and I have talked to most of them at some point, or has steered me to someone that knew more about particular products if need be. Even the manager has been helpful in providing service. It is nice knowing that when something goes wrong, as things occasionally do, it will be fixed. They have proved that out in the past.
- I will add to the review after Christmas and the kids (and myself) have used it a bit.

      Comments about Simmons SD550 Electronic Drum Set with Mesh Pads:

      Picked up my SD550 assembly was a breeze. I'll use it for light stuff, dinner sets, older crouds etc. I've always played acoustic, I have a 20 pc. Ludwig kit with a rack mount. It requires a rodie and the hulk to set
      it up. & I'm neither. This thing weighs less than 40 pounds. It can be carried in the back of my small car.

          Decent kit for the price. Preforms well overall, bass and stare are lack luster in general. Nice for learning, but after a month the bass drum has got to go.

                I use these for recording my own music and they have a real sound that I like plus extra sounds that can be utilized. i had an inexpensive set of Alesis before that I thought were pretty good but these Simmons really do the trick, more clear and responsive. love them and would definitely recommend them. plus living in apartment makes them usable any time. I been playing drums for over 40 years, the next best thiing to actual tubs.
