Mathew Jonson Presents His Synthesizer Favourites: Simmons SDS 800 (Electronic Beats TV)
In this episode of “Mathew Jonson’s Synthesizer Favourites” here on Telekom Electronic Beats TV, our resident synth expert explores the Simmons SDS 800 Electronic Drums. Jonson takes a deep look into a classic piece of ‘80s budget gear. The analog drum synthesizer, released in 1984, works with four drum channels: bass, snare and two toms. The SDS 800’s cosmic sounds became a regular feature on countless reggae, disco and boogie tracks throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s.
