Alesis Announces New Premium Electronic Drum Set, the DM10 X Kit

The new DM10 X Kit is a six-piece electronic drum set that features large RealHead drum pads, large DMPad cymbals and an all-new chrome-plated Xrack with quick-release clamps.

Alesis announces the DM10 X Kit at Booth #400 at the 2011 Summer NAMM show from July 21st- 23rd in Nashville, TN. 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 rich 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 has more than 1,000 uncompressed, sample-based sounds that were produced using Alesis’ proprietary Dynamic Articulation™ technology.

“The DM10 X Kit has the most generous drum and cymbal pad configuration we’ve ever offered,” said Dan Radin, Alesis Product manager. “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.”
