sds-v “Used and as far as I can tell working. All modules work and produce sound. knobs all work as they should.I have only used the synth input to trigger them with the audio out of a drum machine. I have no pads to test the pad inputs. a number of the knob tops are missing. The mixer section has three broken knobs but the shafts can still be turned.

No pads included in sale just the unit.

Pictures are of actual item for sale so please study them carefully to get an idea of condition.” Link

SDS, Simmons @ 25 October 2016, Comments Off on Simmons SDSV Project Machine

sdsv “The three Toms on this were working about three years ago but at the moment I cannot get any output. I have tried to test this as much as l can but l do not have the right cables or drum pads but using Crocodile clips and a speaker driver for a pad I am getting the three sensing lights to flash on he three Tom inputs but not on the Bass and Snare. l last had the Toms working about two years ago an l will try again this week. I have had this about 12 years and I think either the Bass or Snare used to work but now l get no lights or any other activity from the Bass and the lights on the Snare come on but not the sensing light, so the Bass and the Snare will need some attention. The overall condition is well used, there are some broken pots missing caps and cap heads. Also most of the mini parameter screw heads are ok I used a plastic screwdriver to adjust these that l bought from Maplin.” Link

sds8 “Analog synthesizer with bassdrum, snare and 3 toms. Each channel features a unalterable factory sound and a variable user sound. The SDS 8 comes with the same analog filters of its predecessor, the SDS 5. Every knob on the metal chassis is easliy accessable. If you are looking for the classic analog Simmons sound with access to all the nice filters forgoing luxury like user banks, midi or modularity, this is the right machine for you. ” Link

SDS, Simmons @ 25 November 2014, Comments Off on Simmons SDS7

sds7“The SDS7 was the first Simmons offering a digital sound source beside the famous and well-established analog sound generation. Both “worlds” can be mixed. Each of the up to 12 modules carries an eprom with an 8 bit sound sample which can be edited with the well known and succeful analog filters. These sounds are taken from a Simmons library or can be sampled and burned with the Eprom Blower EPB. The filter settings can be saved in up to 99 kits. The first 16 can be quickly selected by the selector pad.

The SDS7 was the successor of the famous SDS5 in 1983 and entered the market as the new Simmons flag ship. ” Link

“Simmons SDS7 with eight cards (!)

– Each of the eight cards has a CEM3372. a CEM3340, and an original ROM

– Cards include: Bass, Tom, Tom, Tom, Snare, Hi Hat, Cymbal, Cymbal.

Sold as-is. The unit powers up and the brain looks to be clean but I can’t get the machine to do much more. I am completely ignorant of the OS, which is a bit archaic, so that’s not helping. Also, the unit is missing a few of the plastic hats/indicators that sit on the very top of the knob. The original plastic knobs are still there and the pots seem to work fine.” Link

” Vintage Simmons SDSV Analogue Drum Brain with 3 Drum Pads. This is a shortloaded SDS5 with 3 Tom modules and one Snare module. The Snare and 2 of the Tom modules are 100% functional; HOWEVER, one of the Tom modules has a bad pot. The 3 presets on this module work fine, but when you set it to be adjusted via the panel pots, it doesn’t work.
3 Drum Pads are included as well. First is 1 of the old style SDS5 pads–this one has a rubber head as opposed to the earlier polycarbonate head. The other 2 are later (SDS 9 era?) pads, that are less sturdy but easier to play. All the pads are in good working order. The older pad is in good cosmetic condition, but the newer pads show more wear.” Link

“Simmons MTM Serial # 000218 Made in England. This unit is in great, used condition. Powers up and everything appears to work excellent. I have only tested by sending midi to my SDS 7 and it worked great. I have not used any of the programmable functions. There are minor scrapes on the top of the unit from being put in and out of racks. There is a minor blemish along the bottom face of the unit under the Store button. Missing one knob (trig out) on the bottom left hand corner. Inside looks amazing. See pictures. New battery was installed a year ago. Software version is the latest…Version 04. Photo copy of the manual is included. Sold As Is.” Link

“Simmons SDS9 analog drum module in excellent working condition. The snare trigger sensitivity knob is broken off, but can easily be replaced. The knob still turns and fortunately is one of those knobs that you really only need to set once anyways. Includes removable rack ears. Hard to find one of these in this nice of condition.” Link

very punchy !” Link

Sie bieten auf ein klassisches analoges E-Drum-Modul vom britischen Kult-Hersteller Simmons.

Das Gerät ist voll funktionsfähig und optisch in gutem Zustand, mit ein paar kleineren Kratzern hier und da. 3 Potikappen fehlen.

Wer die typischen dicken 80er-Toms sucht, ist hier genau richtig, aber das Modul kann viel mehr! Die Sounds können sowohl mit Trigger-Impulsen von Drumpads/Drummachines, als auch mit Audiosignalen angespielt werden. Interessante Ergebnisse erzielt man auch, wenn man längere Sounds oder sogar ganze Loops in das Modul einspeist. Gerade in Verbindung mit anderen analogen Synthesizern und Drummaschines zeigt die Simmons ihre Vielseitigkeit und der Sound ist heute wie damals FETT.” Link

There is a serial number on the machine which is 4006 beneath the address which is 176 Hatfield Road, St Albans, Herts. The unit is of a wood and metal construction and is in pretty good condition for its age. One of the skins and metal rim is missing from one of the drums but the brackets are there so fitting a rim and skin should be easy.” Link
