4.5 out of 5 (264 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "The Pros and Cons of the Alesis DM5 Pro."
Sound: Right out of the box, it sounds decent. The best sounding drum on it is the snare. I give it a 10. The dual zone feature was kinda glithy though. So I eventually just unplugged the rim tap feature from the module. I've never been a big rim tap kinda guy anyway. I really love the ride cymbal too. It's very crisp and clear, but you might need to decrease the sensitivity of the toms. I was getting a lot of crosstalk initially. I give the toms themselves a 9/10. The bass drum sounds great, but I'm uninterested in most of its voices. Seems that it may have double-bass capabilities too. I can double tap the bass with my Tama pedal if I place my foot further from the mallet and it sounds pretty good. The hi-hat serves its purpose but it isn't fantastic. Don't expect to achieve quick Neil Peart-like opening and closing. You can improve it by fiddling around in the module for awhile, but it will never be as accurate as a real hi-hat. 7/10. I use studio headphones to listen to it and to record I just plug it into my mixer. For live sound, I'd recommend running it through a PA or better yet a keyboard amp. Keyboard amps are designed to to produce the highs and lows of a keyboard. Bass amps and guitar amps can't pull it off. Feature: It has 20 preprogrammed drum kits on it. Most are fun to play with, especially the rap one. But I wouldn't consider recording with them. You can download another kit from Alesis but I haven't done so yet. You can make your own kits on here and you even have control over the tone of each drum so its very customizable. Ease of Use: Like most things, it takes awhile to get used to it. But once you get the hang of it its a breeze to operate. Setup was a pain. Make sure you have plenty of room space and be patient. Allow yourself anywhere from one and a half too two hours to put it together. It comes with all the cords you'll need (minus midi cables of course), and if you don't have a drum key, don't worry. It has two of them. No screwdrivers, hammers or hacksaws are required. Most of the problems I encountered were small things I overlooked. So if you get stuck in assembly, don't toy with everything you already did to fix it. It's probably something simple, like improper alignment. I suggest two people for assembly. The bass pedal and expression pedal have velcro on the bottom, so if you're playing on carpet you don't have to worry about it moving around on you. Quality: If everything's tightened correctly, it's pretty sturdy. Sure, the stand sways a bit when you play, but there's no chance of it falling over. The drum heads seem durable. If you live in a building with neighbors below you, you might consider getting a mat to put under it. From someone downstairs point-of-view, the bass drum sounds like someone erratically using a hammer. Value: After playing this kit, I'd buy it again for the exact same price if I had to. It can achieve most of what the more expensive kits do but for half the price. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to contact Alesis yet for any of their products that I own. I also own the Alesis Micron synthesizer and an 8 channel USB mixer by them and I've never had any problems that I couldn't fix on my own. The Wow Factor: I was sitting in my chair at my computer, I looked over at it and I considered buying it flowers and asking it to come to Maui with me for a weekend. Overall: I don't expect to buy another electronic drum set anytime soon. Don't be discouraged by it on your first play. With patience and a little tweaking you can achieve most of which you have in mind.
Style of Music: Progressive Rock.

Sound: There are many different sounds to choose from for EVERY playing style that you can imagine. Feature: The package I recieved came with everything needed to play except a seat,headphones, and a bass pedal. Drumsticks were included. The features of the product itself were very impressive with very comfortable playing pads and they are also very very responsive. Ease of Use: The sound of the set is amazing and it provides you with a WIDE assortment of sounds for every single pad and cymbal. The manuel is very clear and the assembally manuel was very easy to follow. Quality: This product is very durable and very reliable to work at full throttle whenever you need it to. The quality is very good with good pads and very good quality hardware. It seems like it will last a LONG TIME for me.....depending on how hard I play it. So far, it has taken all the hard playing of mine very well. Value: This product is absoutly a huge deal for it's price. This set can do so many things that the sets that costs in the thousands can do. IT IS A STEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Manufacturer Support: I bought from ZZOUNDS so you know it was awesome!!! They helped me with ALL of my questions very quickly and the shipping was a very pleasing experience as well. The Wow Factor: The look of the set just begs you to play it all day long. The sleek black color of most of the set combined with the white color of the pads are a very appealing match and they make ANY room look WAY BETTER!!!! Overall: I expect to be satisfied with this product for at least another 5 years and when i have more money and its time to buy another one i think i will go for a higher priced Roland electric set but until then i now that my AMAZING DM5 PRO KIT WILL GIVE ME ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING THAT I NEED AND MORE!!
