Alesis Strike Pro Electronic Drum Kit with Alesis Software Editor(See Specs)
What We Think
This drum kit is so realistic that you do actually feel like your playing a real drum kit. It is extremely responsive and feels great to play. The module is very accessible and the samples sound so big. I am so happy with this drum kit and you WILL NOT find a better electronic drum kit at the same price as similar drum kits at that standard are at a completely different price point
Hi-Hat Stand and Bass Drum Pedal Not Included
The Alesis Strike Pro Electronic Drum Kit is the first-ever electronic kit to deliver the very best of both acoustic and electronic drums, moving beyond the limitations of a conventional acoustic kit. Strike's premium multi-ply wood shell drums are available in standard acoustic sizes (8''-10''-12''-14'') so you instantly feel at home when you sit behind them. The new 3-zone Strike 16'' ride cymbal, 14'' crash and 12'' movable hi-hat cymbals provide the perfect blend of feel, control, bounce and volume - they feel spectacularly realistic. Complete with the all-new Strike Performance Module, this kit offers 200 custom kits and over 1000 instruments, as well as the ability to assemble your own custom samples and piece together your perfect drum kit.
The all new Alesis Strike Pro drum kit is the ultimate combination of classic wooden shells with the power and versatility of the modern technology behind electronic kits. The premium wood shells are fitted with large dual-hoop pads with mesh heads and adjustable sensitivity control, offering an extremely responsive and realistic drumming experience. A familiar layout, including a 14'' snare, 8'', 10'', 12'', and 14'' toms, and a 14'' kick, ensures that you can get the most out of your drumming, whether you are used to acoustic or electronic drums.
Alongside the 6-piece drum setup, the Strike Pro kit features a 5-piece set of electronic cymbals, including a 16'' three-zone ride, three 14'' crash cymbals, and a set of 12'' hi-hats. The cymbals offer a perfect balance of control and bounce, offering a truly immersive drumming experience. Each cymbal offers a larger bell area for enhanced playability, whilst sporting a hammered look to suit the rest of the kit.
The Alesis Strike Performance module is designed to offer you maximum customisation over your sounds. The module features a 4.3'' full-color LCD screen, showing you all of the essential information about your kit presets that you can access with a glance. With a library containing 100 brand new drum kits, built up from over 1600 multi-sampled instruments, the Strike Pro drum module even features on-board sampling capability with SD card storage alongside USB/MIDI connectivity for virtually unlimited control over your drums. The module is compatible with all of your favourite DAWs as well as the powerful new Strike Software Editor, providing you with thorough control over a range of virtual instruments within your software, all via MIDI. The new Strike editor allows you to assemble your own custom samples into multiple velocity layer and round robin instruments, piece together the perfect drum kit and then transfer it onto the module via USB.
Aside from the 11-piece set of drums and cymbals, the Alesis Strike Pro kit includes a premium 4-post chrome rack for mounting all of your drums, as well as a high-quality double braced snare stand. Drumsticks, a drum key, cable wraps, and a cable snake are all included, providing you with all you need to begin your drumming career.
