What we Think...

Alesis have always been at the front of technology and make great digital drum kits highly respected across the industry. The Alesis DM Lite is the entry level kit they produce and is designed with the intention of grabbing your interest and keep you playing and learning the drums. The build quality for the price is very good. This kit is ideal for anyone thinking of learning the drums at any age. Suitable for Adults and Children this kit sounds and looks good. It has an additional feature of lights on the pads to help teach you to pay and add extra fun and appeal to the kit.  This kit is great value, a more professional player may want to consider going up the range but for any beginner this kit is ideal.

By Graham Blackledge


This is perfect for beginners and new starters, however it is slightly smaller  and designed more for young beginners, do not be deceived however because this drum kit could be the best electronic drum kit at that price point. It is responsive and sounds great and I love the light up pads, it has many different kits and still has a midi out and a headphone socket. Definitely a buy that you can just buy on impulse and not worry about regretting it later.

Instant Drums for the Aspiring Musician­
The Alesis DM Lite Kit with light-up LED pads wi­ll have ­any novice or accomplished drummer playing—and playing better—right away. All drum and cymbal pads are mounted to the pre-assembled, height-adjustable, 4-post rack, making set-up a snap. In addition to 200 sounds (fully accessible by external MIDI sources), the DM Lite Module contains a built-in drum coach offering play-along patterns and exercises to improve your skills. Through stereo 1/4" outputs, the DM Lite Kit can be easily connected to an amplifier or sound system to share your performance or an 1/8" headphone output is available for private practice. Plus, there is an 1/8" aux input that allows you to jam out to your favorite tunes from an external audio source. The DM Lite Kit can even connect to your computer via USB for integration with popular software recording programs and virtual instruments.

The DM Lite Kit includes a pre-assembled 4-post rack, with all drum and cymbal pads in place. Simply unfold the arms, position the pads and cymbals, and use the quick-release fittings to set the height to match your size and playing style—no tools required. The wiring snake connects all of the pads, cymbals, and pedals to the DM Lite module with one single, convenient connection. Plug in the DM Lite module, grab the included drumsticks, and start playing!

The DM Lite module is loaded with 200 quality drum and percussion sounds (fully accessible by external MIDI sources), making up 10 ready-to-play kits that are selected to compliment multiple genres of music. Sounds are arranged into 10 ready-to-play kits. As great as they are, sounds are just the beginning. Inside the DM Lite module you’ll also find valuable extras. The built-in coach feature, 30 play-along music tracks, and an onboard click-track (metronome) add purpose to practice sessions and improve basic and advanced skills. The DM Lite module also provides an 1/8" stereo aux input, so you can listen, learn, and play along with lessons or jam to your favorite tracks stored in your computer, mobile device, or audio player. For making music with a computer, the DM Lite module benefits from a USB MIDI connection to allow use with popular audio recording software and virtual instruments. A headphone jack for private practice, plus 1/4" stereo outputs connect easily to a PA system, amplifier, or recording interface.

The DM Lite Kit includes four drum pads—one snare and three toms. Three cymbal pads are also provided—hi-hat, crash, and ride. When each pad or cymbal is hit, an internal blue LED lights up, adding a mini light show to any performance. Plus, the pads will also flash in response to the onboard patterns and drum lessons, providing visual reinforcement to every practice session.

Two foot pedals complete the DM Lite Kit kit. The first is a hi-hat open/closed momentary control pedal. Second is a velocity-sensitive piezo-controlled kick trigger pedal. Unlike simple on/off kick pedals, this dynamic pedal translates the player’s force into volume, for a realistic kick-drum performance.

We bought this for our son(6) who has recently started learning the drums at school. Can’t comment on sound quality or any other drumming detail as I not a drummer myself so have no idea other than each pad makes a different drum like noise when struck and the sound changes depending on where struck on the pad and how hard. From a practicality point of view it is compact so ideal for a child but height can be increased so I’ve been able to sit at it quite comfortably. Sound can be via headphones or to an amp via an aux cable. Midi to pc also available but I’ve not tried that. You do need a reasonable level of volume or headphones to drown out the noise of the pads being struck which is something I hadn’t thought about as a first time purchase and I guess not something you’d need to think about with a non electric set. Package arrived as expected and in good condition. Not needed any customer support so far.

Great kit for the money.

Great starter kit for my son. Comes with stock but no headphones or stool. Should've bought the bundle with the stool and headphones in coz it was only £10.00 more. Great kit though and my son loves the lights on it. Once he gets going I will get him a better one as this one seems to be for beginners really but good value all the same. Stand is a little bit wobbly but ok fro the job. On the whole 5/5 for the money.
