Simmons Introduces SD1500KIT Electronic Drum Kit
Simmons has announced the SD1500KIT Electronic Drum Kit. With a host of features, the new Simmons SD1500KIT flagship kit, claims to break new ground as the most realistic and full featured electronic drum kit in its class. While most of today’s affordable electronic drum sets compromise on sound or ergonomics, the Simmons SD1500KIT is the first electronic kit of its kind to deliver a wide-ranging palette of sounds in a full-sized, full featured, professional quality drum set that focuses on both sound and feel.
The SD1500KIT starts with a full sized, ergonomically designed 6-piece drum kit plus hi-hat and three multi-zone cymbals. With a total of 22 specific trigger points, the SD1500KIT is designed to deliver a responsive, realistic drum performance. Its hex-shaped blue anodized frame and die-cast aluminum hardware feature memory lock mounts for speedy setup and maximum stability. Simmons’ exclusive multi-position hi-hat pedal and triple-zone snare pad deliver responsiveness, and its crash cymbals offer dual zone and choke capability.
The SD1500KIT electronic drum kit doesn’t scrimp on sound, either. Simmons’ SD1000 Digital Sound Module has been upgraded and enhanced with a completely new custom sound library featuring more than 500 samples of the most popular classic and modern drum kits. With full 64 voice polyphony, full programmability, and on-board processing, Simmons’ exclusive Variable Attack Response programming delivers.
“This exciting new kit truly outshines and outplays anything else in its class,” remarked Jim Norman, Simmons Product Manager and formerly of Roland where he was responsible for the MV-8000.”The new SD1500KIT is ideal for drummers looking for a low-volume rehearsal kit, for schools or churches needing a full size, low-impact stage setup, or for small and mid-sized project studios where recording acoustic drums might not be an option. Whether you’re practicing, recording, or performing, the SD1500KIT is designed to deliver the goods.”
The Simmons SD1500KIT electronic drum set costs $999.99 and is available now.
