The Name That Started it All Announces the Next Generation of Electronic Drums
Thousand Oaks, CA – May 2014…. Simmons, the first name in electronic drum kits, has announced their new flagship model, the SD1500KIT.
With a host of features at a surprisingly affordable price, the new Simmons SD1500KITbreaks 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 ultra-realistic sounds in a full-sized, full featured, professional quality drum set that focuses on both sound and feel.
The SD1500 starts with a full sized, ergonomically designed 6-piece drum kit plus hi-hat, three multi-zone cymbals and a host of features typically reserved for only the highest priced electronic kits. With a total of 22 specific trigger points, the SD1500 is designed to deliver the most responsive, realistic drum performance possible. 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 unprecedented responsiveness, and its crash cymbals offer dual zone and choke capability.
The SD1500KIT doesn’t scrimp on sound, either. Simmons’ flagship SD1000 Digital Sound Module has an expansive custom sound library featuring more than 500 ultra-realistic samples of the most popular classic and modern drum kits. Simmons’ exclusive Variable Attack Response programming delivers some of the most responsive dynamic velocity sensitivity available, with alternating sample playback for even more realistic, expressive sound.
“This exciting new kit truly outshines and outplays anything else in its class,” remarked Jim Norman, Simmons Product Manager.“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 new Simmons SD1500KIT electronic drum set is available now at a street price of $999.99.
