I recently received this set as a gift. After being told by many that electronic drums "suck", these are the exact opposite. The produced sound is incredibly realistic. They bounce the stick back nicely, and my pads show no signs of wear after 9 months of hard playing. The snare can handle a nice hard roll, the hat control is very effective and realistic. The only flaw, as with all electronic drums, are the cymbals. The cymbals have dynamic sound(depending on how hard you hit them) but they can't be muted and they stop to early. These pads absorb the noise so they make a really quiet click(less than that of a guitar hero drum set) which means i can play at night. This set is good for apartments because you wont be annoying your fellow residents. The brain on this set is amazing! there are so many features it is crazy. Playing them in the store is not even comparable to having a set at your house that you can mess with all of the features. my opinion? These pads rock. i would give them a six out of five if they would let me.

Decent set, needs better samples - Simmons SD7PK

Overall, this is a pretty good set especially for the price. I could have asked for a lot better features, but then again, I'm not paying for the top of the line set. Most of the samples are awful, but at least you can hook it up to your computer and use the set to trigger the midi notes and do your own sampling.
The downside to this set is the drum module. It was easy to navigate and all, but the samples kill me. If you like big 80's sounds then this could be your drum module. Fortunately, you are able to save your own kits by putting together the drums that you want. However, with only 300 samples to choose from you are severely limited, especially when most of those voices are just throwaway if you want something that sounds almost real.
You are able to hook it up to your computer though. I was able to hook it up to fruity loops and record midi notes (via USB) pretty well. The downside to this is the drum module will not output both midi via USB and sound to your amp/monitor.
One other annoyance (that I think a lot of kits have) is the kick pad. It is fine if you use a single kick pedal, but if you use a double-kick pedal, then you will have to make some serious customizations to the volume of each drum. I had to turn the kick up to 32 (the highest setting) and most of the other voices to 8-13 range to get the thing to sound almost right. The good thing though, is that the pad width supports a double-kick pedal. Just expect making customizations to individual pad volumes if you go this route.
Bottom line is, I sold the module part of the kit and purchased the Alesis DM10 which has a lot more realistic sounds and better features. This module is not bad if you just want to practice to get better at drums, it's not particularly great sounding for anything else though (i.e. live/band practice) unless, of course, you are in a peter gabriel cover band.
The pads/cymbals work great. Also, the stand that holds everything together was extremely easy to put together and set up. Half of the stand was preassembled right out of the box. The only reason I am giving the quality a low rating is due to the poor samples on the module.
This is definitely on the low end of eletric drum sets. You are not a lot of money to have the best of the best. The value is pretty good for what you are paying. It serves it's purpose for the price 1) Electric Kit, 2) Midi support, 3) Good eletric pads (some of which are even dual zone), 4) Support for headphones if needed.

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

I am not a drummer, so this set was perfect for me. My wife bought it for me for Christmas because it was inexpensive, had a small footprint, had lots of stuff to hit, and would be quiet if I stayed up late and wanted to make a lot of noise (I can use headphones and she can't hear me). All in all, two years later and I have had zero problems. I still can't play drums but they have a small footprint, lots of stuff to hit and are quiet when I want to stay up late. I can see how they would easily fit into a start up band, be great for beginning drummers or perfect for someone to have at home and play along with their favorite band. Would I recommend them to a friend...only a MUSICIAN FRIEND LOL

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

This set was fairly cheap, but you really do get what you pay for. Unless your content to practice without turning the machine on, this set will be a disappointment at any price. Aside from the lack of sensitivity in the snare and the flat sound the machine produces, what made it completely unusable to me was that fact that when you strike the high-hat and snare at the same time it cancels out the snare. For someone like me, who is fairly new to drumming, that is really distracting and annoying. That issue alone disqualifies it for use as a starter set or even a practice set. I had a friend tell me once that you can't buy a cheap guitar when you're just learning because the sound won't reward you and encourage you to keep practicing. I would say the same holds true for electronic drum sets. I sent this set back and picked up a Yamaha DTX520K. I've only had it a few days but already it is a far more enjoyable experience.

Awesome for the price

By Darrell Hill

from Fairfax, VA

Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

I am an experienced drummer with over 20 years of playing experience. I needed something inexpensive and quiet for my apartment, so I settled on this set. Setup out of the box was quick and simple. If you are just learning or just need something simple to tool around on, this is perfect. My biggest complaints with the unit would be this; the "brain" doesn't have any extra ports, so you cannot add any more cymbals, toms, or other "voices" of any kind. Speaking of "voices", that brings me to my second argument. The brain is not intuitive on how to use, but to the best I can figure, there are fifty preset pre-loaded drum kits to choose from. Each kit gives every drum a different voice. Some of these kits are simple sound effects. In my estimation, there are only about 5 to 7 kits that I could seriously consider using in recording a rock song. I wish there were more of a wider range of realistic sounds to choose from. Having said that, this is a tremendous value. Just don't expect to play this and hear incredibly realistic drum sounds. They are passable, but you can tell it's electronic.

      Bang for your buck. 9/10. Some of the samples could be better though(mainly cymbals). Good amount of features; you can tune each sample higher or lower, pan/volume control for each trigger, so many samples to choose from, double bass works well, and all pads have a little kick back which is GREAT! Awesome buy if it's first electric kit or looking for something thats not $1000+.

        the set is perfect for practice so not to bother others in my home. my biggest praise goes to musicians friend.
        I had issues at the start of my correspondence with them. but they came through and restored my confidence in them. I will continue to purchase my lights sound and instruments through musicians friend. they are still my musical friend. this is not a paid endorsement

        Follow up to the "for the money" feedback

        By Ronald Allen

        from Nashville

        Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

        Well I've had the Simmons SD7PK long enough to have read the manual. There is, of course, a drum off toggle for the song function. It will switch off the drum track but still leave in the percussion. I am glad I couldn't talk myself out of this purchase. I use Ableton Live as DAW on my laptop. I can just move the set wherever I want, hook up a usb cable, set it to channel 10 and I'm off to recording in MIDI. Each time I play them I enjoy them just a little bit more. The action is like one of the old time, hard rubber practice pads so my doubles are unrealistically nice- in a good way. The pads are responsive and as a bonus, the SD7PK will take a double bass pedal I just read. They are not perfect but they sure as heck are worth the money.

        For the money I couldn't pass it up!

        By Ronald Allen

        from Nashville, TN

        Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

        I'm a dyed in the wool acoustic drum player. That being said I bought this electronic set of Simmons when the price got so low I couldn't talk myself out of it. This is not something that I would play on stage- that's what my Sonor Delites and HiLites are for. The fact that this had as many voices as it does, midi in and out, usb capability I couldn't pass it up for recording. I got tired of trying to get a crisp roll on a MPK25 pad. I unpacked it last night and to be honest have only played it about 30 minutes so I reserve the right to amend my review. My impressions so far is that it an efficient build. The clips for the wiring help keep things somewhat tidy although that's always been, at a minimum, 2nd or 3rd for me. It does not have the articulation of acoustic drums and I did not expect it too. The fact that I had it delivered to my door for about what I paid for a 10" Sonor HiLite tom was unbelievable. Everything worked out of the box. There is no mystery as to how to put it together, all the cables are cut correctly and labeled. I haven't really worked on getting it to sound exactly like I want but I know the functionality is there. I did get to mess with the songs some. If I had to put a con down it's that the songs still have a drum track. This could be because I haven't studied the manual yet, too much fun to play at 11:30pm with head phones on. Over the years I've watched the electronic drums tend towards the acoustic, analog, drums. They'll never replace them, in my opinion, but for quick recording without having to set 4-8 mics up, have no room noise except what I program in, it was, and is, a no-brainer.

        Snare drum trigger issues

        By Baltomeal

        from Silver City, NM

        About Me Novice

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Simmons SD7PK Electronic Drum Set:

        After reading all the great reviews for this kit, I thought it would be a great investment. I was really happy when the kit showed up a few days after ordering it. Set up was easy and fast. Then the problems started.
        I noticed right away that the snare wouldn't sound when hitting the hi-hat at the same time. At first I thought maybe I was not hitting the center of the pad, as I'm used to my acoustic kit, but then it would not sou.d like every other hit and I was watching to be sure I was hitting the snare dead on. I adjusted the snare and hi hat setting to no avail.
        I put it back to factory settings and unplugged the snare from the brain and the hat.......then the snare worked every time, but when hitting the hat, it made a faint tom sound even though it wasn't plugged into anything!! Then, I noticed if I was to hit the snare at the same time I hit anything else, no snare sound!!
        I contacted Musicians Friend and they were more than happy to help!! They offered to replace it at once and I was so displeased with the Simmons, I asked if I could upgrade to the Roland TD-9K2. No problem!! So, I now have the Roland kit and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Roland line!! The kit I got was triple the cost, but worth every penny!! The quality is so much better!! You can see it, feel it and hear it!! No issues what so ever! Ordered an extra crash cymbal, something you can't do on the Simmons, and it just love the Roland kit!!
        I hope this helps, and maybe I just got a defective kit, but whatever it was, I highly recommend Roland and Musicians Friend!!

          I purchased this drumset for my boyfriend for Christmas - he didn't have room for his acustic set anymore and I could tell he really missed playing the drums. I didn't have a huge amount to spend, so this set worked out great. He was very impressed with the set - when I asked him to guess how much it was he said he thought it was at least seven hundred. He was so shocked that I got it for much lower than that! So all in all, a great purchase for his uses - a smaller set with controlled sound and lots of fun settings :) .
