    A lot of substance for a hundred bucks..

    Comments about Simmons SD1 Electronic Drum Practice Pad:

    The quality is pretty good. Even the foot pedals are not bad, and it comes with an a/c adapter, headphones, sticks. Really all I recommend is a stand. A snare stand works fine. This will definitely help you get your chops up in a more engaging way than a rubber pad and metronome.

    Comments about Simmons SD1 Electronic Drum Practice Pad:

    I just bought this practice pad one week ago and It totally satisfied my needs and expectations. It has great exercises to help you improve your tempo, it has a lot of extra features. It's great for the price, and if you live in a place that you are not allowed to make noise, you should totally go for this practice pad.

    Great for practice

    Comments about Simmons SD1 Electronic Drum Practice Pad:

    For the money, this is a great deal. The included pedals let you play kick and hi hat while using the snare. Built in metronome, patterns, and timing detection is great for practice. Minor quibbles: somewhat hard to read LCD screen, low headphone output, drum sounds do not play through the built in speaker (only metronome does). However, for the money this is great. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a practice pad.

    For the money - More than 5 stars!

    Comments about Simmons SD1 Electronic Drum Practice Pad:

    Was hoping for a practice pad that would also give me a few training aids. I got that and tons more. This has become an instant part of my kit. Piping it through a simple Line 6, 15 watt practice amp, it is capable of putting out levels that match my Yamaha kit and more. I can also do wild things with the sounds by modifying the amp settings. The earphone set comes with a 1/4" plug too, no mini plug here. The 2 included foot pedals for high-hat and such are just OK, use them when it is by itself for coordination. But that's what they are made for. It also converts automatically to mono for driving an amp when you connect the stereo earphone plug to your amp. It comes with the 9V adaptor, a great instruction manual, and the pad is more like a gel pad with great bounce. 65 sounds, 24 rythmns, lots of snares and toms, 6 click tracks, some special effects. The pre-amp onboard is a little weak to drive the earphones effectively, and the cymbals sound digital, but can't have everything. Coming through an amp, it's a tiger. The click tracks are great. You can easily hear them over your kit, no matter how hard you play. I mounted it on a Pro Brand simple cymbal stand and at the lowest setting worked great. For the price, this is an absolute steal. (Hint - throw the sticks away)
