Simmons is a popular electronic drumming brand that is sold by Guitar Center and their related retailers including Musician's Friend, Music & Arts and Woodwind & Brasswind.

They designed the DA25 to suit beginners and is primarily intended for personal use and practice, rather than as an amp to use on stage.

Like many good drum amps, it has large rubber volume and EQ knobs designed to be adjusted using drum sticks.

Pros

There is almost universal agreement among owners that this is a great sounding little amp that's very well suited to practicing. A few say that it's loud enough to practice with bandmates - but that depends on how loud your band is.

Cons

Although it gets great marks for sound quality, you may want to save up and spend a little extra on a bigger amp if you plan to play gigs using your drum amp.

Overall

If you only need a practice amp and don't need a lot of volume then the Simmons DA25 is a great sounding choice.
