Overview

Traditional Drum Sizes and Real Drum Feel
The stunning new Alesis Strike Pro kit shatters all your pre-conceived notions about electronic drums. It combines the feel and familiarity of acoustic drums combined with the versatility and capability of the best electronic drums. These are the perfect drums to move beyond the limitations of a conventional acoustic set, without giving anything up.

Featuring large dual-hoop pads with mesh heads and sensitivity adjustment knobs , Strike Pro delivers an incredibly responsive drumming experience, with great feel and control. Strike’s premium wood shell drums come in standard acoustic drum sizes (14 in. snare, 8-10-12-14 in. toms and 14 in. kick), so you’ll instantly feel at home when you sit behind them.

The New Standard in Electronic Cymbals
Strike cymbals—16 in. 3-zone ride, (3) 14 in. crashes with choke and 12 in. hi-hat— are also an exciting step forward. They feel spectacularly realistic: a perfect blend of feel, control and bounce. They offer a larger bell area for enhanced playability, along with a cool “hammered look.”

Customize Strike to Your Sound
The Strike Performance Module has a sound library with 100 drum kits made from over 1,600 multi-sampled instruments. The module has on-board sampling capability, SD card storage, and USB/MIDI connectivity, which you can use in conjunction with your favorite music production software as well as the powerful new Strike Software Editor. Its 4.3-in. color LED screen displays all your settings and choices at a quick glance.

So, you are looking for a nice electronic drum kit that sounds great, is built well and doesn't look like a toy. Most people would say that to get all of these things you would need to look at a Roland TD-30K V-Pro Series ($4,000) or possibly even the Roland TD-50K ($8,000). This is fine if you just won the lottery, but for most people it's a bit of a stretch.

Then along comes the Alesis Strike Pro. At $2,299 it's about half of what a TD-30K would cost and about a fourth of a TD-50K. And you get much more. Four toms (8", 10", 12", 14"), a 14" snare, three choke-able crashes, actual wood shells and the list goes on and on. This is by far the best value on the e-drum market.

I can't emphasize how great this kit looks. It crushes Roland and Yamaha in that respect. And it sounds amazing. The 110 pre-loaded kits sound great and you have an incredible amount of flexibility with creating your own sounds, loops, samples and more. Not to mention that the Strike Editor software (Mac & PC) is coming soon which will provide even more flexibility with creating your own kits. The module also has eight individual outputs, which is great for recording or if you want to run triggers to different channels while playing live.

A few things to mention:

- Be patient. This is brand new to market and it's been back ordered. I ordered mine on April 30th and it arrived on June 12th.

- Before you do anything, make sure that the firmware on the module is version 1.10. If it is version 1.0, connect it to your Mac or PC and update it. It is a must, as it vastly improves trigger settings and the hi-hat performance. (Most negative reviews were from before this update. Rumor has it that another firmware update is on the way.)

Once you do that, you should have a pretty easy go of tweaking the kit to your own playing style. Personally, I love this kit. It has met or exceeded my expectations in almost every area. I would highly recommend it for drummers from beginners to gigging professionals.

I have always been a Roland drummer. But I decided to give Alesis a try.

Price: I would actually give the price a 5 star rating. For what you get, compared to a similar Roland kit, you definitely get a good bang for your buck!

Quality: However, the quality isn't as good out of the box as what a Roland set would offer. Once you download the trigger and OS updated (which is super easy to do) the set is pretty good. Sound quality, as with any Edrum, lacks a little. But that's expected.

Size: The size is amazing. Most Edrums make you feel a little cramped. But this set makes you feel like you're playing an acoustic set.

In the end, I am happy with the purchase. I feel like it was money well spent. As Edrums go, this is a good choice. If Alesis continues to build on and perfect this, I think it will give Roland some good competition.

    Great Kit only after Firmware Update.

    By kyle

    from las vegas, nv

    Comments about Alesis Strike Pro Kit:

    I was pretty upset with the purchase at first, but the firmware update fixed many of the ghost triggering problems and made the hi-hat triggering issue mentioned in other reviews. Some further tweeking in the module dialed this thing in for me. Excited about more updates and the sound editor that is set to be released. Definitely worth price tag.

        Comments about Alesis Strike Pro Kit:

        Overall it's a pretty nice kit for the price. It took me about 2.5 hours to setup by myself from the moment i opened the box. Some small issues with ghost triggering and getting the hi-hat working is going to take some tweaking. I hope they fix these issues in a firmware release. Giving the kit a 3 on my review now but will increase that if the next firmware update fixes my issues.

        Update: There is no way to delete or edit my prior review so I was told to put another one up. I received the firmware update and it didn't fix all of my issues. I spent dozens of hours tweaking and trying to fix both myself and with support. This is a nice drum set for the price, but still - the cymbals, especially the ride and hi-hat are not very good. There are still a couple of bugs that pop up the longer the unit is on. Cross-sticking on the snare also does not work well every time. I REALLY wanted this to be the set I could have in my home for life. I can't have an acoustic kit due to volume. Opting for a Roland at twice the price instead. I will choose yes to recommend but only to an average drummer. Not someone who wants to be able to be nuanced on the cymbals or hi-hat.

        This set has too many issues. Would you buy a car or a house with so many faults. Everyone (including myself) wants to love this set, but unfortunately there are just too many issues with it. And knowing the quality of Alesis products, buying something flawed is not going to age better with time.

          Comments about Alesis Strike Pro Kit:

          I have been playing this kit in a rehearsal setting for 1 month now. There are some major flaws. The rubber rim split in 3 places. I am not an armature and have been a pro for 30 years. I'm not hitting hard either (5A's). After the download took care of the HH and cymbal issues, i now have major problems with the snare playing by itself even after cross talking was dialed in better. The sensitivity does not respond properly to ghost notes and randomly the hit is 4x the volume even with the same touch. Additionally, the rims are changing voices randomly. The tom rim goes from the standard tom click to a cowbell then back without any logical reason. Called Alesis and the CS person was rude and obnoxious.

              Comments about Alesis Strike Pro Kit:

              Wants to be a "real" drum set. It's pointless to have this. It misses the point of being an electronic set, in size, weight and usability. Plus it just doesn't work right. I'm so frustrated. E-drums should be plug and play. This thing is endless calls to Alesis, forum questions and answers and in the end, the sounds aren't that good.

              Just go out and build your own hybrid set out of real quality drums and triggers. Then you'll have a full size set that you can play live and at home.

              Comments about Alesis Strike Pro Kit:

              Everyone knows that Alesis makes nice looking products for the price. Very enticing when you consider that the competition offers half of the pieces for double the price... but one must wonder how Alesis was able to accomplish this. Well... pretty simple. They threw together some software and slapped pads on nicely covered plastic, and released the Strike Pro kit without even testing for glitches.
              As other reviews read, the hi hats suck. Useless really. Only one area on the pad actually reads full force and the rest of it sucks. Getting it to read the hats opening and closing is impossible unless you have the leg of a gorilla and can stomp down with a whales weight in pressure for a full close.
              The ride cymbal literally just dies out on me after a few minutes of playing, and I have to restart the brain in order to bring it back to life. The bass drum sensor is a tad touchy as well, but that's the least of the problems. Honestly... issues like these for the price point, is absolutely unacceptable. I bought this kit because I was tired of having terrible electronic drum kits and I wanted a serious kit I could use for live performances as well as practice and maybe even recording. This is NOT the kit. It looks great, plays great, and has great features with great sound... if only it worked correctly half the time.

                      Don't waste your time. This is why acoustic drummers don't consider e-drums to be "real drums". Pads break, hi-hat sucks and is weighty and clunky, cymbals feel and the sound horrible, module is poorly made, and no amount of firmware updates will ever get this thing off the ground.

                      Don't buy this because it "looks nice". Print out a big photo of it and look at it, then get over it and buy a Roland kit. Everything I've ever bought from Alesis has been bad. This is like being in an abusive relationship... why did I return to this brand?!?

                      Terrible quality for the price.
                      Go for Roland instead.

                          After reading a lot negative comments about this set I was hesitant to buy it. But nonetheless I bought it because I loved the sounds. After setting up and playing I have to say this is an amazing kit! I've been a drummer for around 18 years. I've opened and played acoustic kits and owned many electronic kits including the Roland TD11/20/30, Alesis DM10, and Yamaha DTX series. It feels great and sounds amazing it will take some tweaking with the settings as far as sensitivity is concerned but really this kit is amazing. Highly recommend this kit.

                            had been wailing away on the $7000 Roland, and thought this might come up short. people the only way it came up short was the cost! every bit as responsive as the Roland cadillac. great kits great response watch a youtube for setup, it will help and the instructions don't tell you which is crash 1, 2 or 3 but these are listed in a picture on the control module lotta cords, but they all come labeled the rim of every tom gives you extras (cowbell, tambo, etc) snare does good rim shots AND cross sticking

                                This set will take some time to dial in. It is worth the time, but it can be a bit frustrating to get there. I really almost thought about returning it after the 1st day, but kept at it and ended up very pleased with it. The problems mostly revolve around the cymbals, especially the hi-hat. Mine came installed with Version 1.2 so I had to install version 1.3 which came with a couple of new sets that are very nice. After a lot of research and tweaking I have managed to get the hi-hat sounding and functioning fairly well.

                                I have owned 2 mid range Roland sets in the past, but I like this set better than both of them. I do have concerns about the sets durability, but most of that is based on what others have said and not any real issues I have seen. With the extra money I saved buying this instead of a Roland I purchased the extended warranty from Guitar Center to give myself some peace of mind. Overall I think it is a nice set. I only gave it 4 stars because of the time it takes to dial it in.

                                    This kit sounds fake and horrible. I thought it would be a huge step up from my entry level Roland mesh head kit. I couldn't have been more wrong. The samples sound like they are rerolled them from their early drum machines. And that is not a compliment. The snare is nice and is almost convincing and is by far the best part of the kit. The hi hat mechanism just doesn't work as everyone has noted. The drums themselves are very heavy, heavier than their real counterparts for the most part. The hardware is nice, and seems like it would last. I feel it is much better than my Roland hardware. I work as a sound man and have mixed many touring acts over the years and know what drums are supposed to sound like. These sound fake. Just like their cheap kits sound. I will be returning mine and will never consider any Alesis products in the future.
