cheapest and best is the one you build yourself....

Simmons are midlevel quality, but sound pretty crappy. Getting a Simmons pad set and an old Roland brain might work better though

I have a Simmons amp and it rocks. That said - I don't care for their e-drums at all.

I use Yamaha and Roland stuff for the pads I haven't made myself. If you're a DIY type person, it's not too hard to make your own pads. You'll still need a module though.

I've just bought myself the hxm 010b kit for 500. It come with triple zone snare, dual zone toms, dual zone crash and triple zone ride. Kick pedal and drum stool. For the money I think it's a really good kit. I put a post about it on here about it, scroll down and find it, it has a link on it.

Where exactly have you seen the Simmons kits are popular- the 80's? : )
For cheap e-kits, maybe an Alesis/Legacy kit, plenty of no-name brands out there to choose from.

Any Yamaha Kit that is labeled as DTX5??K is a damn good kit for the money. New or used!

What's a good cheap electronic kit? A second hand Roland or Yamaha e-kit. Yamaha is better value for money.

As far as I know, there is no such thing as a good new cheap e-kit. The cheap ones have bad triggers that don't always activate, which quickly spoils your playing pleasure.
