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)...

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.

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

          We use the set for rehearsal, while all members going through in-ears.. my biggest problem is the triggering for the kick.. it does not pick up the double bass kick patterns to well, meaning a lot of missed beats... So we try to adjust trigger sensitivity and curve, and we get miss triggers all over the place,, tons of bounce back triggering... We found a not so happy medium which somewhat takes care of all the miss triggers and somewhat allows for double bass patterns to be played .. neither of the two are at optimal capacity but I guess for rehearsal it will have to do.. was hopeful that we could use the set for smaller gigs but not with the poor kick response... Will probably at some point have to replace it with one of the Roland kicks.. the sounds are not great but are workable.. they give some basic eqs to play around with,, some pitch control,. I can run the entire thing through tune tracks which we will probably do anyway,. Hopefully there is no latency problems...And yes , the more you play with it the better you can make it but not by leaps and bounds... For the price, it's a middle of the road deal...

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

            Okay, I have owned Roland kits and I am going to tell you this is the best kit in it's price range. Everyone that is putting this kit down, does not know how to use it, or never took the time to learn the kit and learn how to program and customize it. The stock kits on the set are not bad and there are some great sounds in this module as well as USB capability to add a flash drive with your own sounds which I have already done. I mainly use the kits that I have programmed on my own in the 20 available user kit spots and they sound great! You just have to read the manual and know what you are doing. I even added another e-cymbal that I had and it has room for another tom. It took me some time to learn everything , but once you get to know everything and program your own stuff, it is great.

              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.

                    I use this kit for my worship group. It's a amazing kit so far! I made sure to get some 5a sticks so drummers don't use their heavy acoustic drumsticks, and I use the rubber side of the kick drum beater. Great tones and all the drummers who play on it like it! I haven't had any issues at all! I had to travel around with it too! Sounds are great and it feels great...winning combo!
