Sporting a sharp, new industrial design and a space-conscious footprint, the SD100KIT is ideal
for beginners and students, as well as drummers looking for a practice kit. Compact enough to fit neatly into a bedroom, office, or home studio,

The kit includes a drum bar with snare, three tom pads, two cymbals, a hi-hat, and an integrated, super-stable tripod stand. Beginners and seasoned players alike will benefit from Simmons’ integrated hi-hat control and kick pedals.

The sound module delivers 170 top-notch drum sounds,10 preset drum kits, and 10 songs, as well as one user kit and a user song. The 1/8-inch TRS stereo line output enables easy connection with any amp or mixer, while the 1/8-inch TRS stereo line input can be used with MP3 players for jamming along. It also offers a USB port for instant connectivity to play and record drums on your computer. The pads connect with the sound module via RS-232 multi-pin port for quick, easy set up and breakdown.

“This great sounding new kit is a breakthrough in size, sounds, and functionality,” remarked Simmons Product Manager Jim Norman.”Most electronic drum kits in this price range are toys but the SD100KIT is a serious instrument. It’s ideal for beginners but it’s also a wonderful solution for small studios and private practice. With the SD100KIT, it’s easy to play anytime, anywhere.”

The Simmons SD100KIT is available at Guitar Center and Musician’s Friend, with a street price of $299.99 USD.
