If you're just starting out as a drummer, the Alesis Nitro Kit might be exactly the kit you're looking for. It comes with three 8" tom pads, a dual-zone snare pad, and a tower kick drum pad with pedal. You'll also get three 10" cymbals -- including a choke-able crash. Everything is mounted on a sturdy 4-post aluminium rack, so you can wail on the drums with confidence.

The Nitro Module comes with 385 sounds and 40 ready-to-play drum sets. For those wanting to learn, the module also comes loaded with 60 play-along songs, a "Learn" mode, and a built in metronome so you can keep time. Use the aux/in to hook up your iPod or music player so you can play along with your own music! With all the cool features, you won't believe the Nitro costs under $300!

The Forge's advanced drum module gives you 50 factory drum kits, plus 20 user kits you can create from the library of 600 sounds, and 60 play-along songs.

DM10 Studio Mesh Kit

A zZounds customer favorite, the Alesis DM10 Studio Mesh kit is great for the studio or the stage. With its smooth, quiet mesh drumheads, the Alesis DM10 Studio offers a truly luxurious drumming experience right at home.

The included Alesis DM10 drum module includes over 1,000 dynamic samples with articulations built-in, so you get super-realistic sounds.

Features:
