Adam’s Take

If you are looking for an affordable electronic drumset that has mesh drum heads, this is a good one to check out.  It is not the direction I would steer a professional drummer unless they just needed a practice kit, but regardless of your playing level, this electronic drumset has a lot of great qualities, including the MIDI/USB connections that Alesis does very well.

If you live in an apartment or just don’t have a lot of space for your drums, this drum kit packs down easily with it’s collapsible aluminum rack which can be a great feature, especially for those of us that live in small New York City apartments, or any apartment for that matter.

Bottom Line - It's cheap without being cheap.
  • - Pretty hard to find a decent mesh head electronic drumset for so cheap
  • - MIDI/USB Connections Allow for easy programming and recording, also easy to upload songs to play along to, if you want to use that feature.
  • - This is a quiet electronic drumset which is great for apartment drumming, or drumming with roommates or family that may not be able to stomach tapping for hours at a time.
  • - There's a good leap in quality between this model and pro models, to be expected with the difference in prices.
  • - Not suggested for players that want to use a double bass drum pedal
