The Alesis DM8 Pro Kit: Perfect Sound At A Perfect Price
Perfection, quite simply, is fundamentally unattainable. Or, rather, it was until Alesis revealed the DM8 Pro Kit. The magic-makers at Alesis meticulously researched every aspect of what really makes an electronic drum kit the best it can be, and this is what they've come up with. You be the judge.Perfect Sound
Surely, an electronic drum kit has no business bearing the title of "perfect" without some miraculously high-quality samples. Fortunately, the DM8 Pro Kit comes with the barrier-obliterating DM8 module with Dynamic Articulation™ technology. Alesis' latest drum module in a line now spanning 20 years, the DM8 builds on the success of the top-of-the-line DM10. The DM8 shares the DM10’s essential architecture, including playback of genuine recordings of real drums and cymbals and advanced Dynamic Articulation™ multi-samples. You'll find the DM8 to be packed with over 750 first-call studio and live drums and cymbals, dozens of play-along tracks, and an advanced metronome for practice and performance. The DM8 features professional audio and trigger inputs and outputs including USB MIDI for expansive flexibility and connection to a wide range of sounds and controllers.Perfect Feel
One of the most important factors that makes an electronic kit feel great is the relationship between the sizes of the drum and cymbal pads. The DM8 Pro Kit is designed to provide you with the most accurate, natural size and space relationships of any electronic kit. The DM8 Pro Kit is the first electronic drumset with 16-inch Ride and 14-inch Crash cymbal pads, and it’s also Alesis’ first kit with large, 12-inch snare and floor-tom pads. The DM8 Pro Kit features Alesis’ RealHead drum pads and DMPad Cymbals.
RealHead pads feature real, tension-adjustable drumheads and real triple-flanged counterhoops for the feel you demand. You get a 12-inch snare, 8, 10, and 12-inch toms, and a kick pad that accommodates single and double pedals. If you need to quiet the rims’ sound, the kit includes a set of optional rubber rim mutes. RealHead snare and tom pads mount on standard 10.5mm L-rods with low-slip, knurled mounting surfaces. You can use virtually any single or double kick pedal with the RealHead Kick Pad for the pedal feel you prefer.
The DM8 Pro Kit includes low-noise DMPad Cymbals. The kit comes with a 12-inch DMPad Hi-Hat, a large 14-inch DMPad Crash with choke, and an industry-first 16-inch triple-zone DMPad Ride with choke. DMPad Cymbals provide a rubberized playing surface for a great balance between natural cymbal feel and low stick-on-pad sound. The Ride and Crash cymbal feature large choke triggers on the undersides for accurate cymbal control. The DMPad Ride also features multi-zone triggering on the bell, face and edge. The DMPad Hi-Hat Cymbal and RealHat Pedal give you continuously variable control from wide open to tightly closed, plus chick and heel splash.Perfect Looks
The DM8 Pro Kit certainly looks as great as it feels and sounds. You’ll notice the sleek lines of the DM8, bathed in Raw Aluminum painted finish, which just might match your MacBook Pro, iPad, iPod, or iPhone. Besides the stunning DM8 module, a minimalistic chrome-and-black motif runs throughout the kit. Large Alesis logos on the audience side of the kick pad and on the underside of the cymbals set you apart from the crowd on stage, and logos on each drumhead and cymbal pad face the player for the overhead camera to pick up!Perfect Durability
Drummers know that hardware can make or break a kit. If you check out old footage of Ringo or Buddy, you’ll see their stands flexing and flopping, and the drummer or their drum tech chasing “walking” hi-hat stands. That’s why we carefully considered every element in designing the DM8 Pro Kit’s StageRack. This rugged, four-post rack features 1 1/2-inch metal tubes for universal compatibility and sturdiness. The clamps on the StageRack adjust with large wingscrews for easy, tool-less adjustments with no drumkey needed. And boom/straight-convertible cymbal arms mount in the vertical rack down-tubes for optimum flexibility in cymbal positioning. This rugged rack is built for durability and stability – from the ground up.Perfect Price
In engineering the perfect mix, we couldn’t ignore the matter of price. Let’s face it: there are a lot of really expensive electronic drumsets out there. Sure, we could try to sell you something for multiple thousands of dollars. But that wouldn’t be perfect. You see, we set out to deliver the best possible blend of sound, feel, looks, durability, and affordability in any electronic drum set.
