SNAMM11: Compact And Affordable Electronic Drums

Alesis has announced what they describe as an ultra-compact and affordable five piece drum set, the DM6 Session Kit. Here's their press release with the details...
The DM6 Session Kit includes everything drummers need, a 5-piece drum kit including the best-selling DM6 drum module, a new ProRack II drum rack, five drum pads, three cymbal pads, hi-hat and bass drum pedals, drumsticks and a drum key. The DM6 Session Kit's compact rack and quiet rubber pads give drummers a versatile, low-noise instrument that takes up minimal space and allows them to play and practice at any time, day or night. The compact ProRack II comes preassembled in the box for a fast, east set up.
The popular DM6 module gives drummers over 100 drum, percussion instrument and cymbal sounds, 40 play-along music tracks, an internal metronome and the ability to connect their iPod or CD player and play along with their favorite music. Using convenient plug-and-play USB technology, the DM6 module can also be connected to virtually any Mac or PC, so drummers can take advantage of virtually limitless sounds and software. Using Apple's USB adapter, drummers can even connect the DM6 Session Kit to their iPad to trigger Core MIDI-compliant apps.
"The DM6 Session Kit is a perfect doorway into drumming for beginners, and a compact, quiet kit that parents and spouses will appreciate," said Dan Radin, Alesis Product Manager. "It provides natural drum feel, the ability to play anytime and forward-looking connection to your Mac, PC and iPad."

The DM6 Session Kit 5-piece drum set will be available from musical instrument and pro audio retailers in Q3 2011. It has a U.S. Retail Price of $599.00 and an estimated street price of $399.00. More information:
