Alesis DM5KIT Electronic Drum Kit

Practice Quiet. Play Loud.
The DM5 Electronic Drum Kit is a fully self-contained 4-piece electronic drum set that ships with the DM5 sound module, 5 responsive playing pads (1 which serves as the hihat in conjunction with an included foot controller), 2 natural motion cymbal pads, a kick pedal, tubular support rack, and all essential interconnection cables. Complete with a headphone output, the DM5 is the ideal percussion sound module and controller system that enables players of all skill levels to practice quietly or take to the stage with confidence.

The DM5 is a comprehensive drum percussion system that functions equally well as a recording tool, an on stage performance kit, or as the solution that enables drummers to practice without disturbing those around them.

A versatile performer with a wide assortment of great drum and percussion sounds, the Alesis DM5 is the perfect solution to the following musical challenges:

A great solution for performing drummers looking for a wealth of sounds in an easy to transport system

An invaluable tool for recording the most realistic drum/percussion performances

Enables drummers to practice quietly -- without disturbing others

Features:
DM5 single rackspace sound module contains 540 percussion sounds and 21 pre-programmed drum/percussion sets

All sounds recorded in true stereo at 48kHz with ambient effects

Dynamic articulation feature enables the DM5's drum sounds to respond to the force with which the pad is struck -- including volume, tone, and pitch

Random sample feature brings new life to static tracks by realistically varying the sound of the drum as it is played

5 playing pads (for snare, kick, plus 2 toms; a pad and foot controller for open/closed hi-hat)

Natural motion cymbal pads for ride and crash cymbals

Kick pedal included

Kit includes a rugged tubular rack system that supports the sound module and all pads

All necessary interconnect cables included

Customer Reviews
3 out of 5 (130 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Pretty decent sound for a great price"
Sound: For the price, the sound is quite realistic. The cymbals are not chokeable, but I wouldn't expect them to be at this price. Feature: Product came with a bass pedal. I've had to make small repairs to the pedal, overall it seems to be of decent quality. lots of different drum sounds to choose from, but I could use more cowbell. The kit comes with 7 pads (I think), but 12 available slots. I've added pads and now I'm up to 11 and it seems like a pretty complete kit. Ease of Use: Pretty straight forward as long as the manual is in my hands. Quality: This is probably the weak spot of the product. Most of the plastic tightening wingnuts have broken. I think Alesis anticipated this as they sent metal replacements ones with the kit. I've now replaced all of plastic wingnuts with the included metal ones. I've had 4 pads go bad, but 3 of them occured during the warrantee period and were replaced in a timely manner. The fourth went bad after the warrantee period, so I opened it up and fixed the broken solder joint (a very easy fix). Value: For the price, I got a very good sounding drumkit that allows me to have band practice in my basement without having to blast the other instruments in order to "keep up" with the drum volume. Manufacturer Support: I was very impressed with the customer service given for my broken pads. They replaced the broken pads no questions asked. They even shipped the new pad to me before they received my broken one (to minimize down time). The Wow Factor: It's an electric drumkit, not a pretty or flashy acoustic set, so it's not much to look at, but it sounds good. Overall: I'll wear this product out. It does what I need it to do and it's been easy to maintain so far (18 months).
Style of Music: Rock and Roll

"Best elect. set for the money"
Sound: sound wise the DM5 is pretty good. You have to tweek it though. Feature: When I bought my kit it came with Pintech pads & rack which is better because the pads are mesh not the hard rubber. The new Alesis kits have mesh pads. I don't like the cymbals..Hard rubber again. Ease of Use: once you get the hang of it, its pretty easy. Quality: Well again I have the Pintech pads, however I'd rather have the new Alesis pads.The value knob/dial is weird. There all like this, they slip to another number. I like the sound. Value: I payed about $1000 for mine. So to get the same kit with better pads & rack for $600 or $700 would be a deal. Manufacturer Support: haven't used it. My kit is 5 yrs old. Overall: For the money the "new Alesis kit" Is a real deal. I wish it had chokeable cymbals & rim shots off the snare like the Roland V kits but they cost $3000 to $5000. As for sound, I think the Alesis DM5 is as good or better than anything on the market.
Style of Music: rock, funk, pop, country.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
