"An Invaluable Tool for the Home Studio Drummer"
Written by one of our gear experts!
When I first tried the Strike Pro SE kit I was blown away. The feel was great, the sound was realistic and I truly felt like I was playing on an acoustic kit. Then I took the next few days to dial in levels, drum heights and built my own USER kit. This took the Strike SE to the next level.Now I play the Strike SE everyday, I use it to record drums for my various projects easily and am feeling like a better drummer, all while playing a kit in my apartment at "low-noise" volumes.

Sound
The pads are incredibly articulate, and each is adjustable. I've dialed in each to a really good level for my playing style. I almost never think about it anymore since it just works, and sounds great. Outside of headphone the rubber cymbal pads are a bit loud, but with minimal padding underneath, I'm able to play these each day in my 3rd level apartment and my neighbors never complain.

Features
The Strike Pro module is so simple, with minimal menu-diving but you can really get a lot of results from 1 or 2 screens away from the main KIT view. And when I'm selecting new instruments for a user kit, it's as easy as selecting "VOICE" and hitting the pad you intend on changing. This limits scrolling GREATLY, making for "on-the-fly" kit changes. It's not out of the question for me to have a different kit configuration for every song in a set. And with the Strike Pro module I can have each selectable on the USER kits scroll wheel quickly.

Ease of read more Use
Like I said before, the module itself is pretty intuitive, but with menu-diving being minimal it makes for an incredibly easy module to navigate. I am pretty adept with drum modules, DAWs and drums in general. But I could definitely see the intermediate player not having a problem at all with this after going through it for awhile.

Quality
The kit feels VERY good. From its great red sparkle wrap, to the massive 20" bass drum. I'm happy with the quality and feel of the kit.

Value
This is a high end piece of gear, and it's priced as such. I have no issue using this for my recording projects and the artists I work with are impressed by the realistic sounds produced by the Strike Pro module, along with my turnaround time for getting tracks back to them. This kit is plug and play when it comes to tracking with a DAW and that makes for incredibly fast recording/production time. No mics, no studio time, just me and my Strike Pro SE.

Manufacturer Support
When I was having some issues with how certain triggers worked I reached out to Alesis tech support and they were incredibly helpful in figuring out what I needed to do, and now the kit truly feels like an acoustic kit.

The Wow Factor
When you see this kit set up it's HUGE, when you play it it feels real, and hearing the note articulation makes you believe this is an acoustic kit. I can't say much more because this is all you could ask for in an electronic kit. It sounds good, feels good and looks good.

Musical Background:
I've played Drums for over 15 years and I write about drums for zZounds.

Musical Style:
Emo, Shoegaze, Rock
