    Comments about Alesis Forge 8-Piece Electronic Drum Kit:

    This kit has over 50 presets with 20 for you to fill, it sounds and looks legit and the module is really user friendly. I really like this set after owning a Yamaha DTX400 and hating electric kits because of that kit.

    The Forge is the real deal, for the price, this kit rocks.

    Highly recommended set for practice and recording

    By John

    Comments about Alesis Forge 8-Piece Electronic Drum Kit:

    The initial setup took a while as I am left handed.. However, right-handed players shouldn't have a problem assembling. It was well packed and all items clearly labeled. Out of the box, it sounds great through studio quality headphones, through a PA, or amp. I love the chrome drum frame.

    It is completely customizable and allows many options for setup configurations. It is very solid once properly assembled. I was surprised at the quality... much better than Simmons or entry-level Roland. I haven't had an electronic drum set since my Roland kit back in 2001. What I like most is that I was able to integrate my existing Roland cymbal pad bass drum pedal/pad into the set, as well as midi my Alesis Performance Pad to add additional cymbals and percussion. It went from an 8-piece set to 18 piece. The expanded set allows for a more varied and interesting playing experience using a variety of cymbals.

    Let me preface this by saying that I have been playing drums since 1981. I play progressive rock, jazz and metal, so I am no stranger to drumming. As far as playability, this set is tight. Yes it is all rubber heads, but it is an electronic drum set. If you want a real feel, get a real acoustic set. The the snare and tom pads are responsive and allow for fast and accurate playing. I read some negative reviews about the bass drum setup, but I have experienced no problems. It plays well when the pedal tension is properly set. Once you get accustomed to the hi-hat pedal and hats performance, doing tight hi-hat barks and chops is easy.

    The Forge module itself is easy to operate, there's plenty of kits to fit whatever style you're looking for and it's easy to save custom setups. that was the first thing that I did... I created 10 custom setups with various voices and triggering settings.

    As far as playing out with this set (or any electronic set), I don't think I would want to break it down, move it and set it up. Not that It wouldn't perform superbly for live use. 5 STARS!

        Outstanding kit for the money!

        Comments about Alesis Forge 8-Piece Electronic Drum Kit:

        I was looking for an e-kit for my brother. Something in a middle ground of price and quality. For the price the Forge is an excellent kit. It comes with an actual kick drum rather then just a pedal. It also has quite a few sets and customizations to play around with. It comes with everything but a throne so you can start playing right away. It also allows you to move the drums and cymbals around as you see fit. The drum heads are more like mesh, even though the description says rubber. I was very pleasantly surprised at this. You can hook it to headphones or a powered monitor. He lives in an apartment and it is quiet with the phones and small enough to fit in his bedroom. It also has some of the extras you would expect. Metronome, USB port, record and pre set music play options, midi, mp3. Outstanding for the price!

        By Strza

        from Pdx

        Pros

        • Easy easy to set up
        • Kick pedal
        • Respectable Library of sounds
        • Works great for controlling software, no driver.

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Midi control
          • Practice 4 drummers who need quiet

          Comments about Alesis Forge 8-Piece Electronic Drum Kit:

          Unless you're going to pay more than $2,000 for an electronic kit you won't find one with this many features this sturdy. Took about 45 minutes to an hour to set up the drums , plugged in a long USB cable to my laptop and started laying down midi Beats with session drummer, BFD, and ezdrummer without need for a driver. I couldn't be happier with my purchase, and big props to Mike Byrd at GC Clackamas.

          I wish the toms and cymbals were larger but again, its a good start to have for under $500, but would have to get the better model to get larger.
