Alesis has announced the DM10 X Kit, a premium, six-piece, professional electronic drum set.
Dan Radin, Alesis Product manager, has this to say, "The DM10 X Kit has the most generous drum and cymbal pad configuration we've ever offered.There's simply no other electronic drum kit in this price class with 12-inch drum pads, 14 and 16-inch cymbals or such a professional grade of hardware."
Here's more details directly from Alesis...
With the groundbreaking Alesis DM10 module, a comprehensive set of large electronic drums and cymbal pads, and an all-new Xrack, the DM10 X Kit is designed to offer capabilities and features previously only available on kits costing thousands more. The DM10 X Kit features an expansive six-drum, four-cymbal configuration with sizes and spatial relationships that will feel natural to acoustic and electronic drummers alike: a 12-inch snare, two 10-inch toms, two 12-inch floor toms, a 12-inch hi-hat, a 16-inch, three-zone ride cymbal and two 14-inch crash cymbals.
Designed with an emphasis on performance and adaptability, the DM10 X Kit's all-new Xrack is rugged, chrome-plated and features an ultra-solid four-post design. New Alesis quick-release clamps secure each pad in place and allow drummers to rearrange their setup in seconds without tools and without having to the rack apart. A few turns of a T-bolt is all it takes to release a clamp and move a pad. The DM10 X Kit's snare pad comes with a separate, fully adjustable snare stand that allows drummers to place the snare pad precisely where they want it.
With the DM10 X Kit, Alesis unveils a new-look DM10 module, which contains more than 1,000 uncompressed, sample-based sounds that were produced using Alesis' proprietary Dynamic Articulation™ technology. Pricing and Availability:
The DM10 X Kit electronic drum set will be available from musical instrument and pro audio retailers in Q3 2011. It has a U.S. Retail Price of $1,999.00 and an estimated street price of $1,699.00.
