    1. It’s not really Simmons so they should not really be hexagonal. Guitar Center bought the name so the could sell cheap (read: crappy) drum products.

  1. I want to know if the pads can be played by hand instead of sticks.
    And how sensitive are they?

    … like a multi-pad Korg – Wavedrum !

    I’m sick of so many ‘nano’ pad and keyboard controllers with mini-pads.

    Their customer enquiry form is a pain in the a$$ to get through 😐
