Strike Kit

The Strike Kit is a game-changer. In fact, it might change everything you think you know about electronic drum kits! Almost any e-drum kit out there will boast "realistic" sound and feel, but the Strike Kit gives you premium wood shells in standard acoustic drum sizes, so you'll really feel at home if you're an acoustic drummer. The mesh heads provide amazing acoustic-kit-like feel, and each drum has a knob on its side that lets you adjust the that head's sensitivity fast, without digging through menus on the module. This kit delivers serious acoustic vibes without all that loud noise!

With the Strike Kit, you'll also get a set of electronic cymbals -- a 16" 3-zone ride, 14" crash, and a 12" hi hat. The 14" crash is choke-able, which adds to its realism. All of the cymbals have a cool, "hammered" look, and a larger bell that makes it a bit easier to differentiate zones. The attention to detail in these cymbals is truly incredible! Just another feature that makes these kits feel like the real thing.

The heart of the Strike Kit is the Strike Performance Module. Alesis loaded this "brain" with 100 brand-new drum kits and over 1600 instruments, on-board sampling (so you can quickly create loops to play along with), an SD card slot, and USB/MIDI connectivity. With a 4.3" color screen and independent volume sliders for each drum, this drum module makes it fun and easy to dial in your drum sounds and customize your kits.

- Premium wood shells
- 14" snare, 8", 10", and 12" toms, and 14" kick with mesh heads
- 16" triple-zone ride cymbal, 14" choke-able crash cymbal, and 12" moveable hi-hat
- On-board Sampling capability
- Strike Performance Module with 4.3" color LCD screen and individual outputs

Strike Pro Kit

The top-of-the-line Alesis e-drum kit, the Strike Pro is the most complete electronic drum set in its price range, with full-sized drum pads that give you the look, feel, and sound of acoustic drums.

This flagship 11-piece e-drum kit has a 14" dual-zone snare, four dual-zone toms, a mesh kick, a 16" ride, three 14" choke-able crashes, and a 12" moveable hi-hat set. The drums are wrapped in real wood shell hoops with a red sparkle finish, and topped with natural-feeling mesh heads -- making the Strike Pro Kit a joy to play.

Each individual drum has a sensitivity knob directly on the drum -- no more scrolling through menus on the module to tune your e-drums to your liking. And the Strike Pro Kit gives includes the same Strike Performance Module as the Strike Kit, with a big color screen, on-board sampling, individual outputs and more.

- 14" snare, 8", 10", 12" and 14" toms, and 14" kick with mesh heads
