Overview

The Simmons SD5K Electronic drum kit has sensitive drum pads made of a durable, yet highly responsive material to accurately capture every hit. All pads have adjustable rack placement and angle adjustments for unlimited customization to your playing style. This includes 2 cymbal pads and one hi-hat pad which have height and angle adjustments for a convenient, custom-tailored fit.

The included hi-hat control pedal gives you the feel of a real hi-hat pedal, providing instant hardware familiarity to your playing. Similar to an acoustic drum kit, the hi-hat functions as a closed hi-hat when pedal is stepped on, and open when the pedal is released.

Unlike acoustic drum sets, the kick pad can be placed independent of the toms for even greater customization to your body size and playing style.

Control the Simmons SD5K electronic drums through an easy-to-read bright multifunction LED display. All parameter settings on your kit are visible, so you'll always know where you are.

The sound module contains 237 voices and gives you plenty of sounds with which to customize your own drum kits. You can store up to 10 different custom kits, or use the 22 preset kits that come with the module for a head start. Also included are a reverb effect, a built-in metronome, and 48 preset songs to practice with.

Lightweight aluminum construction provides the strength of steel, but without the weight. This means easy transportation to and from the audition, rehearsal, and gig. An easy-to-put- together design make setups and breakdowns easier. Specially made locking hinges keep your setup from drifting, ensuring your kit stays exactly where and how you set it up.

This Simmons Electronic Drumset comes with an industry leading 2-year manufacturer's warranty.

I guess I'm use to older electronic sets. The last one I bought was an SDS9, so this is like a new world to me. I wish the bass trigger could handle a double pedal, but there is just no way. The trigger is way too focused. The smooth mounts pose a problem with stability. Had to go aftermarket and get some with some burrs on them. Works much better. Not really impressed with the voices, but I'm going to try a different brain. Hm.........now I'm thinking I should have gotten something different. Reconfiguration is costing me a ton to get this to my standards.

Well, as a beginner the set seemed too cool to pass up for the price and it has served its purpose, but, the quality of the set is mediocre at best...although everything still works well and misses are a part of the set, it still delivers 'drumlike' sounds....Not for the pro for sure...and the friggen tap tap tap sound you get from the high hat, (or ride or crash) drives me nuts...the rubber on the cymbals is WAY thin and allows a plastic thumping sound..volume doesn't hide it too well when your sittin on the throne..I run it with the Roland 350 keyboard amp, (which is way cool) and it does allright enough to get you hooked on playin drums...think I need the Roland drums to go with the amp...maybe a splitter for another crash would work..??,,I recommend this for beginners and beginners only...rat-a-tat...

Happy Drummin In SD

By Jeff

from Rapid City, SD

I purchased this set 1 week ago. Easy to assemble. Surprisingly strong (Been drummin since I was a kido, now I'm nearly the big 50!), good sounds from the drums. The symbols sound fine once you change the pitch and style or type. Dont forget you can set the volume of each instrument seperately! Trigger sensitivity is also adjustable for each instrument. I have a 26 piece Yamaha Set up stairs but i wanted to be able to play any hour. I have NO Problemo with anything about this set. Spend a few tuning to your likes. You'll be surprised of the outcome. Mine sound awesome. AWESOME Value!

I like them

By zack

from central florida

I like the kit. I am playing through a Behringer 180w. keyboard amp. I am also using them to trigger my Akai MPC 1000...I got all the sounds I want. I also liked the idea that I don't need any mics for the drums. I am sure the Roland kit for $2k is better, but this fit my budget and works!

Simmons SD5K

By Matt

from Grand Rapids ,MI

I'm a guitar player and I wanted this kit to learn on and use for recording in my home studio. I'm impressed with the quality of its construction,the sounds it offers,and its ease of use. For a kit in this price range I don't think you could do any better. I would not hesitate to recommend the SD5K to anyone looking to purchase a starter to intermediate electronic kit.

Excellent For Beginners! or mid experience players

By CelloDrummer1138

from Laredo , TX

I bought this kit for practice and small gigs , and it's a very good kit. You can play it with an amp ... or with headphones in silence. It has a lot of voices , and some cool features like a midi out . The kick pad (bass drum) its a little bit soft in terms of volume but you can adjust the volume and it sounds more louder , and with a good amp it rockzz!, also you can adjust the sensitivity of the pads , including the hi-hat and the cymbals... I recommend this kit for it's quality , that probably it's not as good as a $2000-3000 kit but it's worth the price and for it's cool features and price ...

Pretty good...

By TMBP

from MS

...For the price. I just got this kit, and I already know that I'm gonna have to upgrade sooner than later. The pads work fine and it's pretty sturdy, but the hi-hat pedal is either hyper-responsive, or not responsive enough sometimes. The module is decent. It offers a very limited array of sounds, but some of the kit pre-sets actually sound pretty good. And you can change the pitch of anything on the kit, so at least its slightly customizable. I would recommend this kit if you're on a tight budjet like me, because you can always upgrade the module and so-forth.

a beginners drum set

By hunter

from detroit,mi

Well, I've recently got this drum kit and its a very good beginers set. This set has great sounds to choose from, and many possible adjustments to make, but if you play too fast-the drum will not make a sound. You also have to buy headphones and/or an amplifier (it doesn't come with it). Overall I think this drum set is a great drum set and has many ways to adjust the sounds and the pads. And it's for a great price!

Great for me!!

By Mikey Gool

from New York

Had my set since Christmas 09. I just started playing drums and I love this set. Price was good at $280. Sounds good off of small Roland monitor speakers or headphones. I will probobly by a bigger amp in future. Nice selection of kits and songs. I am getting better and the set is keeping up so far. Recommend them BIG TIME.

Total Beginner Review!

By Nick

from ---

Well for me, its great because unlike regular drums it hides the sound with headphones and I can play it all the time. Im a beginner, and it doesnt really "feel" like a real drum set, but I can deal with it. Its got a great deal for electric drums at the moment at my store. And its better for beginners because of the different sounds and stuff. Ive only played them in the store but I plan to get some soon. I would recommend for beginners that have parents that complain about the constant banging and annoyance :D

Worked for 8 months.

By Tristan

from Pound Ridge, New York

I got this drum kit for Christmas, and within three months, screws started falling off, from - seemingly - nowhere. A month later, the snare pad started getting quieter and quieter. Now, it barely works unless you hit it in the exact right spot. Four months later, the hi-hat just stops working out of the blue. No quieting, just plain stops. No sound whatsoever. All in all, I was very disappointed. Now, I've abandoned this kit completely, and I've gone to acoustics.

Works...kinda

By TheDrumMan

from san diego, ca

Simmons SD5K Electronic Drum Kit I've had this set for about 6 months. It works all right. The high hat does not register fast hits and the high hat pedal doesn't work very well (does open or closed). But about 2 months ago one the cymbals stopped working and then the kick stand sensor went out. Doesn't say much for reliability. I am in the process of getting them replaced. Overall a very mediocre kit. I never get anywhere close to the same feeling as when I'm playing real drums. You really feel the digital disconnect. I guess you get what you pay for but I would expect a little more quality for 600 dollars.

I didnt like it

By H4L3Y

from oklahoma

I bought this set a year ago, and liked it at first. The better i got at drumming though, the less i liked it. So id recomend it for a begginer, but expect to want a new one soon.

Not worth the price

By Sam777

from Orlando

I thought that for the price this was going to be a good set, but it was truly not worth the price. There were tracking problems as well as problems saving drumsets that all the modules I tried (I tried 3 of them) had. I finally returned it and got a Yamaha DTXpress for about $150 more. Go with the sure thing in Yamaha.

chaa braaahhh

By Bman493

from Galloway, NJ

This drum kit has a good set up. although the hi-hat isnt very responsive, it is a very good drumset for beginners . the hi-hat works all the time except maybe 1 out of a 1000. this electric drum kit is totally worth the money also

To All parents and beginners

By Raymond Leon

from Martinez, CA

I got this set as gift and I love it. Sure there are musicians out there who have bigger needs and are very particular about their instruments but this set IT'S GREAT. Think about this: Good Sound quality, no LOUD noises, Small (in comparation) and overall has everything you may need to begin. I'd tell you, CAN"T GO WRONG with this.

I was so excited...

By Seth

from Plainview NY

Well I have been toying with the idea of a Simmons Electric set for 3 years but was waiting until I could get a fantastic deal. I am a working drummer with 2 small children and also have a day job. My band rehearses at a studio, and I usually get an hour a day to practice when the kids leave for school. But there have been so many nights where I REALLY WANTED TO PLAY, but couldn't. On Black Friday 2010, GC had this set for a few hundred bucks as a "doorbuster". I had played it in the store and REALLY liked it. For the money, it had decent stick response, allowed me to plug in an mp3 player and play along, was virtually silent when headphones are worn, and was seemingly the answer to all of my needs. I got into the store when they opened and was lucky enough to snag this BARGAIN while they were available. It fit in the back seat of my Escape and I took it home and set it up. The quality is sturdy and the set up was easy. I plugged in my mp3 player and started to jam. I noticed that the hi-hat wouldn't open and close and assumed it was a bad pedal. If only that was the case. It turns out that the "brain" is defective. The Hi-Hat control jack is no good and the hi-hat will only open/close if you pull on the cable in an upward direction. Again, this is OUT OF THE unopened, new, sealed BOX. I took the brain and foot pedal back to the store and sadly,I have to return the KIT and they will order me a new one. It'll take a week to get it. So I am doing 3 x the work, I am without the drums I have wanted so long, I am inconvenienced, yet I ordered the replacement. Stay tuned...

Simmons SD5K Electronic Drum Kit

By Manobeat3

from Detroit, Mi

The kit does not hold up to a beginning drum student, the rack is loose and of poor construction. The sounds and sensitivity settings in the module are mediocre at best. The pads are worse than a Remo practice pad kit and no wrench is included for re-tensioning the pads.

What?

By MasterMind-Drummer

from Milpitas CA

I read the reviews and it just doesn't make sense...a beginner telling how it doesn't "feel" like a acoustic? Well if you're a beginner that plays it all the time, how would you know its feel? I play this at the store alot and im an intermediate drummer and its pretty good. It might be hard to hit if you like to play fast or something cause the pads are small, but it sounds great. Probably best for a practice kit at night or if you live in an apartment. Otherwise, you should buy the $500 Ddrum set. (Ddrum is the brand)
