Manny's had the exclusive on selling the new Simmon's SDSV electronic drumkit. I was the go to cat for these and did custom programming. The first generation, picture here in all the formica like feel, caused some carpel tunnel issues. The 2nd generation had rubber pads but not untill the Roland V series did electronic drums really start to feel nice. Buddy Rich came into the new electronic drum room one day while I was programming the new SDS7 analog/digital drumkit. I asked him if he'd like to try it. Alot of cats, Max Roach, etc dug the new stuff. Buddy's response to me was "kid do you want to play the drums or push buttons". He then walked out.
