Simmons SDSV Analog Drum Synthesizer With Hihat/Cymbal Modules SN 001117

via this auction

"Simmons SDSV Analog Drum Synthesizer With Hihat/Cymbal Modules- 7 modules and hihat pedal.

Up for auction is a dear possession of mine. I have had one of these brains for most of past 33 years. This is my last one acquired in 2008. I scoured the earth to find the hihat module and finally the cymbal module.

All controls work as they should. Unit sounds great. Missing a knob cap, but those are available elsewhere on ebay. Cymbal module does not have factory knobs at all for some reason, but hey, they work.

Hi hat pedal and power cable included. If i can find a manual I will also include.

7xlr pads inputs plus hihat pedal input. 7 xlr individual outs. Plus a mixed output controlled by from front panel mixer

Simmons SDS5 xlr pads work best, but Roland PD10/20 xlr work well as does Yamaha PMC-1 pads with xlr (the green and black ones). Never tried to use 1/4” jack pads. Module also has 7 “synth in” inputs to be driven by older (and some newer) gear. Arturias beatstep pro works well with SDS5."
