Overview

The Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Kit is the next step up from the popular SD7K, with the expanded functionality and sequencing capabilities that capture the essence of the electronic drum realm at an affordable price.

Upgraded features
The pads feel incredibly life-like, with over 700 realistic sounds and an expressive hi-hat. The bass drum pad accommodates a double pedal. With a dual-zone snare pad, dual-zone cymbals with choke capability, 40 preset kits and space for 59 user kits, the SD9K delivers state-of-the-art electronic sounds with USB connectivity at an unbeatable price.

Lay it down and play it back
No matter what style you play, you owe it to yourself to explore the world of recording and sequencing possibilities that this electronic kit offers. With its 110 preset songs and 100 user songs you will never get bored of practice while playing along or creating your own songs. It also features a built-in metronome that has a range of 30-280 bpm's (beats per minute).

Imagine the possibilities
The Simmons SD9K Drum Set has live, electronic 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 make electronic drum sets more useful than ever. Just play the song, and use the SD9K kit'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.

Bass pedal sold separately.

This Simmons Electronic Drumset comes with an industry leading 2-Year Manufacturer's Warranty.

Okay here it goes. I got this set so I didn�ۡ���t have to keep taking down my acoustic down, putting it in cases, hauling to practice or gig and then set it back up at home to practice or work on drum parts�ۡ��_blah, blah, blah. Here are my pros and cons: Pros: Love that it comes with 4 toms, the cymbals are all dual zone with choke, great number of sounds and you can build a huge number of personalized sets. All pads are tunable and you can EQ the entire set or each pad. 2 AUX so you can expand the set. I have added one more tom to match my acoustic set which is great. The wheel on the brain makes scrolling through the 700+ sound quick and easy and with some EQing, the set sound really good recorded. You can play along to music via the AUX in jack from either a computer or MP3 player. Very easy to record with and lay into a multi track editor for adding drum tracks to your bands guitar and vocal tracks. Easily transportable and set up is about 5 to minutes. Great for practicing with the band if we have to watch our volume. Cons: The hardware is anything but. Very poorly made. The tension rods that tighten to secure the drum pads to the �ۡ��̏L�ۡ�ݕ�_ rods break way too easily. 2 have broken already and since they are part of the pad itself, you can�ۡ���t fix it or get a new tension rod so now the drums just rest on the �ۡ��̏L�ۡ�ݕ�_ rod. While the cymbals have nice dual zone and choke features, I have had 3 break and I have had to replace them. The plastic under the rubber cracked causing the cymbal to miss-trigger. I don�ۡ���t feel that I was hitting them too hard but I�ۡ���ll be looking for more sturdy cymbals in the future. The crash cymbal arms don�ۡ���t tighten all the way or at least mine don�ۡ���t. And I must echo what others have said about the kick pad. WAY too loud. Sounds like a block of wood and the problem is if you are going to play with an amp. You have to turn up the volume very loud if you don�ۡ���t want to hear the sound of kick pedal on wood. There you have it. I hope it helps.

easy setup

By styme

from youngstown, oh

Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

Just purchase 12/07, and was extremely easy to setup as the cage was already assembled and wires are pre-labled. Awesome feel and set can take a beating. Pads are very responsive with no lag. Have double bass setup and works flawlessly.Just got to fight the kids for seat time

The sd9k is eveything it says it is. This has opened up a new passion for my drumming. Easy set up, I spend hours playing along so much to do!, sound is fantastic, I will be buying the amp soon.I focus on playing rather than thinking are my drum heads in tune! I have a new respect for electronic drums,and look forward to buying SIMMONS products in 2009!!

This is fantastic

By Rick Mofeg

from Your moms,butt

Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

One word, Brilliant. You cn do so much with this set. Make a high def drum cover with a built in mixer that has reeverb and EQ. Play Rockband with its MIDI out sytem (GH:WT kit required) and even play for audiences with a good enough amp. Although it doesn't come with a bass pedal you should get a double for any style. Bottom line, this thing is perfect for any style of music for a percussuionist on a budget

Great Set Great Value

By Craig

from Ramsey IN.

Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

I Bought my SD9K set and the DA200S Amp. 12/29/08. I play them two or more times a week and really enjoy the different things you can do with them.I have played Yamaha and Roland sets that cost two or three times more and I am very impressed with the Simmons. Yes, there are better sets out there but after two months of looking I bought the Simmons because of the value for your buck. There are only two things I would change, 1) I can not seem to get the cymbal sounds I really like but that may just be me. 2) The pads have a very small sweet spot that is hard to hit without hitting your sticks together. Overall I would recommend them for sure.

Best value in electronic drums

By Lord Worm

from Katy, Tx

Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

Pro's: Can customize the sound of every pad All cymbals are dual zone giving you 6 cymbal sounds from 3 pads! Snare is dual zone Stick rebound from pads is very quick Always in tune Can create numerous custom kits from a huge library of pre-programmed voices Withstands my death metal blast beats! And my favorite feature - connect your mp3 player and play along with your favorite tunes - you can even control the mp3 player/drums volumes independently for the perfect mix Con's: Rack is a bit flimsy - entire kit vibrates when I'm blasting Hardware tends to loosen up on it's own - gotta give some toms a daily tweak And the sole reason I can not give this kit 5 stars - the kick pad!!! OMG! That thing is loud! Even using felt beaters, the sound of the beater striking that pad is insane. Seriously, Simmons, fix it.

This kit is worth EVERY cent!

By Jeff the "Drum Bum"

from Portland, OR

Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

I used to own an old-school Roland DDR-30 kit with the triangular pads which required an Alesis micro-cue amp to play through headphones. Simmons has come a LONG way since then and the SD9K satisfies every requirement you may be seeking in electronic percussion. Easy set-up, programming my own kits pad-by-pad, stick responsiveness, and durability were features I was looking for. You will get all that and more. Recording, sequencing, metronome, choke on cymbals, and bass pad takes a double-pedal. You can also adjust the pads to avoid "cross-talk"..AWESOME kit Simmons!

Good but needs Improvement.

By D.H.C.

from Olathe, KS

Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

I've owned the the SD9K for a little over a month now and so far I am pleased with the purchase. The issues that I have with the set are the same annoyances that others have noted. The bass drum trigger is loud and feels like a rubber covered metal plate. I've also noticed the small sweet spot in the dual trigger snare pad. I was able to compensate a little for the sweet spot by adjusting the snare/rim sensitivity settings in the SD9K module. I am very impressed with the SD9K module. It has tons of settings and sounds and it's very easy to create custom kits. I recently replaced the Simmons Bass drum trigger and snare with a used Roland KD-8 kick pad and PDX-8 snare. I then added the Simmons snare as a 5th tom, added a 4th cymbal and purchased the Simmons DA200S amplifier . Now I can truely say that this kit Rocks! It's still not a Roland but for the price it's definitely worth a look.

a good starter

By n9x

from iowa

Comments about Simmons SD9K Electronic Drum Set:

so i bought this a little over a year ago and overall im pretty satisfied. the included drum samples arent too bad, i would say about 40% of the kits are good useable kits, the rest are a little gimmick-y. all the mounting hardware works well, never had any issues with it. the snare isn't quite as sensitive or responsive as the roland variety, but you do kind of get what you pay for. the first real issues ive had with it is the kick drum trigger and one of the crash triggers stopped working just recently. but overall, if you are looking for a good electric set to get started on drums, this is a pretty good way to go.
