Gearank Recommendation

The DA25 was on our recommended list for Electronic Drum Amps from October 2019 until April 2020 when it was out-ranked by other amplifiers.

Overview

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.

It's only a small amp meant for practicing, so 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.
