SNAMM09: Professional Electronic Drum Set From Alesis


Alesis tell us that their new DM10 Pro Kit is the product of extensive research and development efforts. Here's all the details that they have given us...
Based around the completely new DM10 sound module, the DM10 Pro Kit features Alesis' RealHead drum pads, SURGE Cymbals made of real cymbal alloy and an ErgoRack mounting system. You will immediately notice the DM10 module's outstanding sound quality. This new drum sound module contains true drum, cymbal and percussion sounds, built from real samples of classic studio drums and prized cymbals. The DM10 module not only has a breathtaking collection of sounds onboard, it is also the world's first drum-sound module that enables you to load new sound sets via USB connection from your computer. The DM10 Pro Kit is the new flagship of the Alesis electronic percussion line. We've raised – and curved – the bar with the DM10 Pro Kit.
