Alesis ships the new six-piece DM10 X Kit and the compact, affordable DM6 Session Kit 14/11/11
Alesis has announced that the DM10 X Kit, a professional, six-piece electronic drumset, and the DM6 Session Kit, their most compact and affordable drumset, both of which were announced at the Summer NAMM show are now shipping to musical instrument retailers.
Alesis say that, with the groundbreaking Alesis DM10 module, the all-new XRack, a comprehensive set of large drum and cymbal pads, the DM10 X Kit is designed to offer capabilities and features previously only available on kits costing thousands more. They tell us that the DM10 X Kit offers an expansive six-drum, four-cymbal configuration with sizes and spacing 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. The DM10 X Kit's all-new chrome-plated XRack is rugged and features an ultra-solid four-post design and new Alesis quick-release clamps that secure each pad in place and allow drummers to rearrange their setup in seconds without tools and without having to take the rack apart.
The more basic DM6 Session Kit includes everything drummers need, says Alesis: the best-selling DM6 drum module with more than 100 sounds, a new ProRack II drum rack, five drum pads, three cymbal pads, hi-hat and bass drum pedals, plus drumsticks and a drum key. They say that the DM6 Session Kit's compact rack and quiet rubber pads give drummers a versatile instrument that takes up minimal space and is quiet enough for them to play at any time, day or night. The ProRack II even comes preassembled in the box for a fast, easy set up.
Dan Radin, Alesis Product Manager, told us, "We strive to provide drummers with unmatched features and value at every price. The DM6 Session Kit is a compact, capable, affordable, quick-assembling kit; and the DM10 X Kit is the most impressive-looking and most incredible-sounding kit we've ever made."
