Simmons SD5K Electronic Drum Kit

Expert Review

Simmons is one of the oldest makers of electronic drums and they’ve consistently produced quality electronic drums at low prices. This is the best budget kit for individuals valuing responsive, durable pads over an advanced tone module. The rack system is strong but also lightweight making it easy to move around. The tone module will probably have to be upgraded down the road but in the meantime you do have over 20 factory programmed kits to choose from. You can also edit and save 10 kits for added customization.

The SD5K includes a metronome, several songs for practicing, and over 200 sounds. The one drawback is the sounds are dated and only appropriate for certain situations. If you are on a limited budget, I recommend buying this kit and eventually replacing the tone module when you can afford it.Rating: 4/5
