Alesis DM8 Pro Kit
The Alesis DM8 Pro Electronic drum kit features the DM8 high-definition drum module with Dynamic Articulation.
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.
It's an ultra-compact module, which means integrating components of the DM8 Pro Kit – or the entire setup – into acoustic drum setups and percussion rigs is easy and comfortable. Imagine adding electronic, percussion, and rare, ethnic sounds without giving up the organic, primal power of an acoustic set.
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.
The 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.
