Designed for the drummer who wants a rock-solid electronic drum set for practice, rehearsal and recording, the Simmons SD600 mesh-head kit with Bluetooth is ideal for players who are looking for an acoustic sound and feel, premium features, and the ability to expand, create and connect wirelessly via Bluetooth.

All Mesh Pads with Rugged Rack

The SD600 comes complete with double-layer, tension-able, dual-zone mesh heads, including toms, snare and kick, for incredible responsiveness and realistic acoustic drum feel.
