The Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set is the next step up from the popular SD7K, with upgraded components such as 9" Pro tom pads, Pro dual-zone snare pad, and Pro rack and clamps to get you up and playing in minutes.
The feel on these electronic drums is incredibly lifelike, with over 300 realistic sounds and an expressive hi-hat. The bass drum pad accommodates a double pedal. With a dual-zone snare pad, 20 preset kits, and space for 30 user kits, the Simmons SD7PK delivers state-of-the-art electronic sounds with USB connectivity at an unbeatable price.
No matter what style you play, you owe it to yourself to explore the world of recording and performance possibilities that electronic percussion offers. The Simmons SD7PK kit has live, electronic drum pads and hand percussion options letting you add exotic sounds that would otherwise require a large and space-consuming collection of instruments. Drum giants like Vinnie Colaiuta and Josh Freese incorporate electronic drums into their live kits, giving them a far broader palette to work from. Plus, with many bands playing live to sequenced backgrounds, electronics are essential for triggering and interacting with your backing tracks. In the studio, the wide variety of sample libraries available makes electric drum sets more useful than ever. Just play the song, and use the Simmons SD7PK's MIDI signal to trigger your choice of samples, and you'll have drum tracks that can be endlessly altered as you mix. Replace the snare, kick or toms, or combine multiple samples for a massively powerful wall of sound.

I purchased this kit as a beginner drummer expecting a little more quality than what I got. It's alright, and I like being able to put headphones on and play at 2am without waking up the neighbors. However, the downside is that the hi-hat doesn't act at all like a real hi-hat. It's either open or closed, there's no in-between, and I have to push or release the pedal well before I would on a real drum set. This can really screw with your timing if you expect to practice on this kit and play out with an acoustic kit. Would I return it? nah. It was worth the money since I got an extra discount in-store because it was a floor model. But if you're goal is to become a professional drummer, make sure the electronic kit you're getting has a good response and feels as similar to an acoustic kit as possible.
This is my first electronic drumset. The kit is good except for the kick pad. Thankfully I purchased the 2 year warranty. I'm on my 3rd kickpad, and I've had it only 2 weeks. I do not play hard. Guitar Center is offering me an exchange to a better brand. I just may do that, considering the time and fuel spent to go and replace the kick pad.
I bought the SD7K about two years ago for some home recording. It filled the need pretty well so I decided to use it for small gigs. It sounds realy well when used through a good PA system but I had to tinker with the settings quite a bit. While I was trying to find some spare parts for this kit I discovered that it is not a true Simmons, but made buy a Chinese company called Medeli. Medeli makes the same exact kits only the name is different. This kit is also sold as Millenium electronic drums in Europe and the DD506 on Ebay. Although it does what I need it to do, I feel like I have been cheated.
I got this kit to add onto my acoustic kit for some extra sounds. I also use it to practice at home. For the money, this is one of the best. I read the other reviews and saw one about the sensitivity not being responsive. If you look in the owner's manual there's a way to set the sensitivity to be more sensitive for lighter hits or ghost notes. There's also velocity control curve to adjust the sound level to how hard you hit. They're no Roland V-drums but, for $500, they're great and the quality is surprising for the price.
We purchased this set for a youth group praise band. I have had multiple drummers playing on it, and all have said that the pads are not responsive at all. Missing every other hit at times. We are stuck with it now, but I just want others to know what they are getting. If you could save a bit more, do it...it this instance, you do get what you pay for.
Good starter kit! I am just beginning to learn to play. And I feel that for the price its well worth it. If I continue to play and get much better I will buy a more expensive Roland. But for now it works. Size is small, the different drum kits sound great. The frame is sturdy, and I can play all night and no one can hear me. It is tons of fun!
drum pads have very little throw back unlike even the cheapest rubber pads in v series. v series is more expensive but worth it
