As someone who has no room for a full drum-set , These are a god-send though it takes a good strike to get them sounding they are quite adequate.( you can change the pad configurations to suit) they are good portable set you can take anywhere (Batteries)and you can' beat the price. they didn't get 5 stars is the velocity setting is not adjustable I'm a drummer with 20+ years and like the way these feel.

This unit is not worth the money. I bought it for MIDI recording, and I took it back after one day. First, the MIDI implementation is terrible. The pad sensitivity is worse and the pads feel like hockey pucks with absolutely no rebound. The set is poorly made, and the LED display would go out when playing on the system. Go with the Yamaha DD65 which is a great system if you are looking for an all in one drum.

Would Not Recommend...

By Shane

Comments about Simmons SDMK4 Digital Multi Pad Electronic Drum Set:

I bought these literally an hour ago at GC primarily to use as a MIDI drum controller for drums in Logic 9 (Addictive Drums and all that jazz). The drums are of a good build quality structurally, and most of the onboard sounds are pretty good. But my turn off point came at responsiveness and playability. The pads do not properly register multiple hits, like flams or rolls, causing a huge drop in volume between strikes or cause missed hits, the pedals are way too sensitive, sending what sounds like double kick hits rather than single sometimes, and there just isn't a very good response to physically hitting the pads, as far as stick rebound goes. It feels like I have to find different spots on the pads every time I strike just to get a clear response in sound or for it to even register. They might be great for someone young who just wants something to learn on or bang around on, but for a multi-instrumentalist such as myself with years experience who records professionally, this is not a good pick. I'll be returning them tomorrow and going for the Yamaha's at another GC store most likely.

SIMMONS SDMK4

By Mark Edwards

from DeKalb, Illinois

Comments about Simmons SDMK4 Digital Multi Pad Electronic Drum Set:

The SDMK4 SIMMONS Drum set is really nice. I never had something like this before. So I took a chance and bought one on line, and it was shipped to me in about 4 days. It was packed very well, and it came with drum sticks, and the manual. I tried it out right away, and I was impressed with the sound. It sounds like a real drum set. You can also use headphones to play. And you can hook this up to your computer, which was my main purpose this unit. It has a variety of styles of drum sound that you can select for each drum , so if you like your snare in a certain spot , and you need your tomtom in a certain spot, your symbols, and so you have the option to put them where you need them. You can choose where to put the snare on the set. It has many sounds like real drums, so you do need spend time making the right drum sound that you need. It also has recording, so you can record your sound. But I did notice after I record a drum beat, it doesn't have a save button to save the recording, now I am still in learning more about this unit, so the recording might be saved, and maybe I don't see it. But I do have a software on my computer with microphones to record the drum set anyway. So for me it doesn't bother me if the recording doesn't get save, cause my computer will save it. So getting back to this drum set percussion, it sounds really good, like a real drum set. I chose this because of it's price, and for late night jamming when my family is asleep. I do plan on buying a real drum set, but again this unit is really good.

The Stand Mount

By Mike

from Clinton Township Michigan

Comments about Simmons SDMK4 Digital Multi Pad Electronic Drum Set:

The Problem that I have with the SDMK4 is 1) The volosity sensitivity of the pads 2) It dosent mount on the standard Simmons Electronic drum mount. I had to contact simmons to find out if they have a special mount for it. This should be printed in the owners manual.

Some good tones, in my limited opinion.

By Geoffrey Morrison

from OKC, OK

Comments about Simmons SDMK4 Digital Multi Pad Electronic Drum Set:

I don't think hitting it's "hi-hat" with a stick is realistic (seems muted). Pads perhaps too close together--yet, it proves very portable and convenient. I'd like some type of stand.... I purchased this since a certain cheapo electronic floor kit that I desired was out of stock: Yet, I wanted this type of electronic drums at some point, also. I use this for practicing in a remote room--for now, I prefer this over traditional rubberized pads. (If you compare pics, this appears to be similar to Fender's colleague device.)

Awesome.

By laputa619

from cleveland, ohio

Comments about Simmons SDMK4 Digital Multi Pad Electronic Drum Set:

This is a great set. I've had it for almost a year now and they lasted pretty long. They have a good clean sound, and the controls are easy to use, but sadly, after a few months of hard playing, they finally gave in. The sound started to crack, the pedals break, and after even MORE time, they don't work at all. my bass pedal is totally unresponsive. Great starter kit, indeed.

fantastic

By bill

from Allen Park, michigan

Comments about Simmons SDMK4 Digital Multi Pad Electronic Drum Set:

Awesome little drum set, if your on the fence jump over and buy it. great sound and solidly built. One knock, the high hat is not loud enough. The sound from striking it takes away from the actual symbal sound. This can easily be rectified with an amp though.

Electronic drum set

By Melissa

from New Jersey

Comments about Simmons SDMK4 Digital Multi Pad Electronic Drum Set:

It's fantastic, its compact and can be put away when not in use - yet the way the it is set up - it is similar to a full size drum setup. The sound is good and it has a teaching program to help you learn the rhythm and placement of the drums. Definitely a good buy.

Small and Compact!

By Aaron

from colorado

Comments about Simmons SDMK4 Digital Multi Pad Electronic Drum Set:

This drum set is so great because of how small it is, you can take it pretty much anywhere and obviously it is much easier than taking a whole acoustic set. It is also really easy to record with. The only small problem is that the pads aren't quite as responsive as an acoustic set but other than that you won't be disappointed!
