Professional hardware, premium drum pads, an inexhaustible sound module, and a sleek design elevate the six-piece Alesis DM10 X Kit to a step above other electronic drum sets in its class. Its DM10 module packs in over 1,000 sounds -- good luck trying to get through all of them -- with Dynamic Articulation multi-sample technology, a built-in sequencer and metronome, play-along tracks, and more. Meanwhile, the drum kit's 10- and 12-inch drum pads; 12-, 14-, and 16-inch cymbals; and chrome-plated XRack with an adjustable snare stand make you forget you're playing e-drums.
Expansive Layout Doesn't Skimp on Drums or Cymbals
The DM10 X Kit's expansive six-drum, four-cymbal configuration is designed to feel natural to drummers. Acoustic and electronic drummers alike can let loose on a 12-inch snare, two 10-inch toms, two 12-inch floor toms, a 12-inch hi-hat, a 16-inch three-zone ride cymbal, and two 14-inch crash cymbals.
Alesis's acoustic-feeling, dual-zone RealHead pads in 10- and 12-inch sizes have real mylar drumheads and real triple-flanged counterhoops. The snare and tom pads are dual zone, meaning that you can perform anything from rimshots to rim clicks on the tom rims. Alternatively, you can get creative with the DM10 module by assigning sounds such as gongs or cowbells.
DM10 Module's Sounds Sound Real, Because They Are
With this Alesis kit, you won't have to make too many sacrifices to get a quiet, apartment-friendly electronic drum set that doubles as a performance instrument. In fact, when you start exploring its sample-based sounds and other high-definition features, you might not miss your acoustic kit at all.
The DM10 X Kit's brain is the Alesis DM10 module. In addition to a built-in sequencer, metronome, top-panel mixer, and a variety of outputs, the sound module includes more than 1,000 uncompressed, sample-based sounds that were produced using Alesis' proprietary Dynamic Articulation multi-sample technology. This arsenal of sought-after sounds covers a range of styles and types, from standard acoustic drum sounds and snares made by top producers to classic drum machine and electronic percussion sounds that permeate your favorite bands' music.
Because they're sample-based, the sounds are real, not synthetic. Each sound is actually a series of different samples, and multiple dynamic-level samples and articulations are built in so that the drum or cymbal changes its timbre and volume as you play harder or softer.
Some Easy Assembly Required
Quick to set up and tear down, the DM10 X Kit can be rearranged in seconds without having to take apart the rack or search for an Allen wrench. Quick-release clamps secure each pad in place, and a few turns of a T-bolt is all it takes to release a clamp and move a pad. The snare pad comes with a separate adjustable snare stand that makes it easy to place the snare pad exactly where you want it. Best of all, the rugged XRack is built to withstand some serious pounding, making the Alesis DM10 X Kit a sturdy set that will last for years to come.

With the DM10 X Kit, Alesis included a comprehensive set of large drum and cymbal pads, and an XRack. The DM10 X Kit is designed to offer capabilities and features previously only available on kits costing thousands more. The DM10 X Kit features an expansive six-drum, four-cymbal configuration with sizes and spatial relationships that will feel natural to acoustic and electronic drummers alike: a 12-inch snare, two 10-inch toms, two 12-inch floor toms, a 12-inch hi-hat, a 16-inch, three-zone ride cymbal and two 14-inch crash cymbals.
Designed with an emphasis on performance and adaptability, the DM10 X Kit's XRack is rugged, chrome-plated and features an ultra-solid four-post design. Alesis quick-release clamps secure each pad in place and allow you to rearrange your setup in seconds without tools and without having to the rack apart. A few turns of a T-bolt is all it takes to release a clamp and move a pad. The Alesis DM10 X Kit's snare pad comes with a separate, fully adjustable snare stand that allows you to place the snare pad precisely where you want it.
The DM10 X Kit also features Alesis' acoustic-feeling RealHead pads in 10 and 12-inch sizes. The dual-zone pads feature real mylar drumheads and real triple-flanged counterhoops for the feel you demand. The snare and tom pads are dual zone, enabling you to perform rimshots, rim clicks or assign other sounds such as wind chimes, cymbals, gongs and cowbells on the tom rims. You can use virtually any single or double kick pedal with the RealHead Kick Pad, or split the DM10's kick input with a Y-cable and connect an optional second kick pad for the pedal feel you prefer.
At the core of the Alesis DM10 X Kit is the groundbreaking Alesis DM10 module. The Alesis DM10 hosts a built-in sequencer, metronome, top-panel mixer, and a variety of outputs. It also includes more than 1,000 uncompressed, sample-based sounds that were produced using Alesis' proprietary Dynamic Articulation multi-sample technology.
Not only does the DM10 deliver lightning-fast, uber-accurate tracking, the widest dynamic range of any module, incredibly drummer-friendly operation, a massive input section, but it also has the most realistic, natural sound set available in any drum module. Dig deeper into the DM10 module you'll find some of the most in-demand acoustic drum sounds from legendary drum brands, a huge arsenal of top producers' go-to snare drums, real American, Canadian, Chinese, and Turkish cymbals, and a choice selection of classic drum machine and electronic percussion sounds that have fueled the biggest hit records.
Discerning ears will notice that each sound is actually a series of different samples; multiple dynamic-level samples and articulations are all built in so as you play harder and softer, the drum or cymbal changes its timbre, not just its volume. This engineered realism is known as Dynamic Articulation, an Alesis exclusive.
You can play with or without reverb for different room sounds and enjoy a wide variety of rimshots, rim clicks and different stick-placement sounds on the cymbals. For example, a hi-hat's sound depends on a number of factors: how open or closed the pedal is, how hard it is struck, and other variables resulting in 40 different sounds - plus foot chick and heel splash. Put simply, the DM10 X Kit has the most generous drum and cymbal pad configuration Alesis has ever offered.
