Alesis Crimson set is an awesome set overall! - About 3 hours from box to drumming, Have it hooked up to Simmons DA200S Drum Amp so the sound is excellent! Bought on black Friday at GC - so got a good deal on both! Novice drummer that could not be happier that I went with Alesis Crimson instead of cheaper set. Amazing sound! Video on GC site does not do the sound justice! Nice looking set! Always complimented when showing set or pics... Set can be spread out for full size look or scrunched up for compact space. Here is a breakdown of components:
-Rack - Awesome! Very sturdy 4-post aluminum rack, could do a handstand on it! -5 Stars
-Mesh Heads - Amazing! Nice bounce! Real drumming feel - No Guitar Hero rubber pads! Very durable and should last a long time! 8" kick bass is a big plus! Better than any other heads I tested! -5 Stars
-Cymbals - Good sound, Hi-hat misses occasionally, two 12" and one 14" cymbals sound good! -4 Stars
-Snare Drum - Perhaps the best feature on the set, 12" with great sound and own stable stand! -5 Stars
-Hi Hat pedal - awesome - surprised at the quality! (makes up for hi-hat missing occasionally) -5 Stars
-Module - Very Good! Relatively easy to figure out, 50 drums kits are awesome! -4.5 Stars
Have added Gibralter stick bag, LP Black Beauty Cowbell and Toca mounted drum Tam already, so the set is expandable unlike cheaper sets. Alesis support is lacking as expected, not able to register - because Alesis does not have the Crimson set on their website yet... Overall a great set with real full size drumming feel - no doubt that this set is the best on the market for the price! (comparable sets could easily be $2500)...

Bought the kit new, and within 2 weeks of playing it I started having triggering issues with the snare. I paid to have the snare sent to Alexis for them to fix/replace under warranty. After 5 weeks I heard nothing back from them. So, I sent an e mail to the person that I was working with. Another week went by...still no response. So, I called and left a message on his voice mail. 4 days later...still no response! So, I sent him another e mail asking him "to please help me, and let me know what's going on. Finally, got an e mail back saying he would get on it right away, and get back to me within the hour. Guess what? Never got back to me! So, I tried calling Alesis again to speak with someone else...got put on hold for over 20 minutes, and decided to just hang up since it was a long distance call. A week and a half later, I get a snare drum in the mail. Opened the package, and it was the wrong one (color & size). Sent another e mail to try and find out why they sent me the wrong snare...no response! Tried calling again, same thing, on hold for over 15 minutes. I'll add this too...After I sent off my snare to Alesis, I figured I would use tom #3 in place of my snare, so I could keep playing the kit. After playing the kit for a week, I started having the same triggering issues with tom #3! So, I'm probably having some sort of issue with the module that's causing whatever my snare chord is plugged into, to short out. Unfortunately, I'm just not able to get Alesis to help me out, even though the kit is still under warranty through them. Absolutely the worst customer service experience I've ever had!!

      Comments about Alesis Crimson Electronic 5-Piece Drum Kit with Mesh Heads:

      Not a bad E-Kit by any means. Great for practicing when volume is an issue. Another cool thing about this kit is you can change the Tom layout. I've set it up as 1-up, 2-down, rather than the pictured 2-up, 1-down.

      There's one major hiccup that really tics me off about this kit. The kick pad is not responsive to quick kicks, so you don't get every crisp kick. Steady double bass patterns sound great, but the faster you play the less the trigger picks up.

      All in all, great practice kit but not if you're a metal drummer.

            To get my kick trigger to work I had to max out the sensitivity and drop down a setting called retrig cancel down to its lowest setting(01) Now it works great and I love my drums. I would buy them again.

                Comments about Alesis Crimson Electronic 5-Piece Drum Kit with Mesh Heads:

                The crimson is well made. Very responsive and reasonably priced. The ability to be able to add your own kits is great. I find the crimson is sterdy enough although the kick pad can be a touch cumbersome. I had a bit of trouble with the ride sounding when other drums was played even when being light handed. I was able to sort this out in the settings but found i lost some sensitivity on the ride as a kind of trade off. The bell on the ride is small and almost pointless. The high hats are good to play but the open hat sound on most presets sounds like a low quality sizzly mp3 that almost makes you want avoid using them whilst open completely. The cymbals are ok but also feel the least comparable to the real thing. Thankfully i use the alesis crimson as a mdi controller with ezdrummer. As A set of triggers this kit is ideal. that was it's saving grace for me personally. Overall i am really happy with my purchase and am looking forward to the strike pro where I'm sure most of the crimsons short comings will be ironed out. Keep up the good work (:

                  I'm very pleased with this product for the exception of two concerns. The Module may need to be updated or improved. I'm having trouble with the triggering when using Rim shots. Especially when using the Snare. I'm getting intermittent Rim shot which is very problematic. I also would like to be able to configure the Rim Shot Trigger to sound more realistic. It sounds very similar to the sounds coming from the Snare it self. I also had problems with the Kick paddle beater bouncing back additional unwanted beats. So I adjust the spring tension. It beats much better now. It would be good idea if you or Alesis would provide best practices for this issue. Maybe suggest the best kick pedal or the best setting to correct this problem. I notice there are others that have also experienced these issues.

                      Comments about Alesis Crimson Electronic 5-Piece Drum Kit with Mesh Heads:

                      Owned the kit for about 3 weeks before the module locked up and screen froze on firmware version. No sounds and buttons completely unresponsive. Alesis support said they have never seen this problem before and set up RMA for replacement with a new module. That was about 2 weeks ago. Maybe the new module will get here soon because I sold my old kit and now I have no drums.

                      Even with all the bad reviews of Alesis products I took a chance on this kit. Very disappointed to say the least. I would look elsewhere if you are considering any Alesis product.

I look forward to many years with it.

                            It was difficult for me to sell my acoustic kit, but this electric kit instantly filled the void. I live an apartment, didn't really have space for my full kit and wouldn't have wanted to make the noise anyway. My drums were stacked up in a closet so I finally got rid of them and purchased the Crimson. It took a while to set up the first time, understandably, but now I can actually fold it up and keep it stowed when I'm not playing it. Requires minimal time/effort for me to set up or break down when I want to play. I can put on headphones and play any time day or night.

                            The value in this kit is amazing, especially considering the all mesh heads and sturdy rack. At first the triggers weren't quite suited for my playing style, but with some simple tweaks on the brain I was able to get it working perfect for my approach. I love messing around with the different kits/sounds. I got this with the intention of practicing, but I would gladly put this thing on stage and perform with it. Your sound person would love you for having one simple out port and no mics to mess with. Huge fan of my new Crimson and have no regrets whatsoever about going electric.
