Alesis Forge Kit Electronic Drum Kit

The Alesis Forge Kit is a complete 8-piece electronic drum kit that includes everything you need to play like a pro. It features an 11" dual-zone snare and three 8" tom pads for great feel and natural response, plus a kick drum pad with pedal. Three cymbals give you a virtually unlimited range of playing expression and the premium chrome 4-post mounting rack keeps everything solid and secure.

Loaded with Great Sounds and Features

The included Forge Drum Module features 70 drum kits (50 factory + 20 user) with over 600 sounds and 60 play-along tracks built-in. To further sharpen your skill, there's a built-in metronome and 1/8-inch input for playing along with your mobile device, so you'll be ready for the studio or stage. There is also a stereo pair of 1/4-inch outputs, headphone output, and a USB-MIDI output for triggering your favorite virtual instrument plugins.

Load Your Own Samples

The Forge Drum Module also features a USB memory stick input. You can use this input to load your own .WAV samples for the ultimate flexibility. Once the .WAV samples are loaded, you can easily assign these to any zone of any pad on the Crimson Mesh Kit. The sonic possibilities are endless! You can also load in .WAV files of play-along tracks using this input.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Brain, Meh Pads"
Overall: This is my second mid-level electronic kit. I previously owned a Kat KT2. In a perfect scenario, I would put the brain from this kit with the pads from the KT2. The Kick drum trigger on this kit is the major downfall; for beginners and people playing only single notes, it will suffice. However, if you try to do consistent doubles or triplets, the pad misses beats, even with the sensitivity maxed out. I haven't tried this with a double pedal, but I will be replacing the pad before I do. The brain on this thing is the best I've come across on a kit for under $1000, which make sense, since this brain is used on the command and Crimson kits, which are both more expensive. All that said, I probably would have opted for the command kit, if I were to purchase again.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Alesis Forge: The Whisper Machine"
Sound: The sound dynamics are very good and stable, for an electronic kit at any price range, and all the samples are high quality, and very full-bodied. However, if you set the hi-hat control to be a second kick pedal, it will still activate the hi-hat close/open, which was a pleasant surprise - it even keeps the hat closed when you use double bass. The problem here being that it keeps it MOSTLY closed. It occasionally opens partway during a fill. Feature: It's got 600-something samples to choose from, user-made kit and song options, and it is VERY quiet, especially compared to electronic kits using real heads. It sounds great, feels great, and won't wake the neighbors. Ease of Use: Set up is somewhat of a pain as the parts are labelled in the manual, but not actually on the parts, or the bags/boxes they come in - which isn't that big of a deal, seeing as the pictures are fairly clear anyway. Other than that, the module is pretty easy to use. It's very simple, straightforward, which took some getting used to after having had the DM10's bigger, bulkier, more advanced module, but it's pretty self-explanatory. You won't get lost there. Quality: It's an Alesis. It seems cheap, it kinda looks cheap, and it is cheap. But in 5 years of owning Alesis products, I have not once been disappointed or let down in any way. Their products will take whatever you throw at them and soak it right up - which is good, considering we percussionists tend to throw a lot more physical abuse at our gear than anyone else. Value: $500 for a quality 5-piece acoustic kit, with cymbals and all necessary hardware(even a pair of sticks that were better than I thought they'd be) would be a steal. This comes with 50 of them, and some slick music, to boot. Yeah, it's worth it. Manufacturer Support: Have never needed to contact Alesis, because their products have always worked right the first time around. The Wow Factor: The noise level. Just plug some headphones into it and it's like you don't exist. I live in a tightly-clustered apartment complex, with fairly thin walls. I set up at 12am and played for six hours. No one's called the cops, my roommate says no ones come knocking, or stomping on the floor, and that's with me playing hard - I'm a metal musician. All is well. Overall: This kit is whisper-quiet and leagues beyond any electronic percussion in it's price range - drum machine or drum kit.
Style of Music: Hard rock; metal
