    As reviewed by STEVEN MURPHY on 3/8/2014

    Went back and and forth between the studio and the X of the DM10 set. Went with the X. Either would have been fine I expect. Just wanted the larger drum surfaces. The quality of the drums is good on the outside. Can't comment on what's inside(the electronics). While setup was easy, I would have liked some guides on how to get it lined up better. My first attempt was okay, but a little off. A tape measure later and I have frame where I want it. Connecting the pads and cymbals to the brain was mostly painless with two exceptions, the fourth tom and cymbal. Once I got it straight and looked at the guide and printed text, I got it right. The audio quality is top notch. There are so many kits. Some are useless and I will never use them. Some are fantastic and will be use all the time. I do wish Alesis would have spent more time focusing on more useful (to me) kits than some of the duds in there. BUT, that being said, to others, those kits I don't like may be gems to others. Luckily, the DM10 allows me to configure my own kits from existing sounds. Excellent! One thing I can say is pay attention to the diagram and setup instructions. The cymbals have a unique device they sit on and it is orientation specific (up vs. down). I almost didn't notice in the guide. The promo video from Alesis shows the kit without the rubber pads on the rims so it looks nicer. They do provide the rim guards and I would recommend using them. Doesn't seem required though, but I figured it'd prolong the life of the rim. There is no throne or kick pedal. That's pretty typical. If you're new to drumming, make sure you don't forget to get sticks, a throne and a kick pedal (or dual kick pedal). You'll also want a rug or pad for under the set if you are on a hard surface.

  • Can't Handle Normal Play

    As reviewed by R. Christopher on 1/23/2015

    I am a drummer currently in a local band. I purchased this drum set looking to use it as a practice tool to play with and record with alongside the rest of my band. I play this kit for a few hours at a time about every other day. On paper and at first sight this drum set is a great purchase. However, after about a month of playing on this kit and experimenting with it, I came to find that this drum set is very limited when it comes to the selection of various toms, cymbals, and little to no bells or accent cymbals; (the few china cymbals on this kit all sound like literal steel trash cans being dropped, rather than a recording of an actual china cymbal.) As well as the hi-hat being extremely laggy and unpleasantly terrible at registering when it is closed, even when the hi-hat and pedal have been properly calibrated. To further my disappointment in this product, few months after my purchase, I notice that all of the drums pads have dents and tears in the heads. The rubber covers for the rims of each head have also torn and no longer do their purpose of covering the rims of each drum. I have now owned this drum set for 6 months, and the 12 inch crash cymbal does not register when it is hit, making it completely unusable. The warranty it is under with Alesis covers repairs and replacements for 1 year, and within just 6 months I have had to call and ship in all 4 tom pads, and the snare pad to have them all replaced, only to obtain the same damage the first set received. I now have to call and ship in the crash cymbal to be replaced. Do not purchase this kit. When you purchase a percussion instrument of any sort, it is made to be hit. However, each piece of this kit breaks upon being hit as a normal piece of percussion should be hit. What good is a percussion instrument that cannot be hit?

    The DM10 module has "Failed" twice in the 9 mpnth period, since my purchase in February 2012. Telephone Alesis; right! Two contact telephone numbers by e-mail from Alesis: 1 number disconnected; the second is a holding pattern (more than 15 minutes, each time, no answer). I have the DM10 Pro Kit which also have problems with the SURGE cymbals!
