Overview

The ION Drum Rocker Electronic Drum Kit is an electronic drum and cymbal pad set designed to be used with the popular video games Rock Band and Rock Band II. Drum Rocker can can also be used as a real electronic drum set by connecting it to an Alesis Drum module. The Drum Rocker delivers the most realistic drumming experience available to any gamer. That's because it was built by the engineers at Alesis, one of the largest manufacturers of professional electronic drums in the world. As a result, you get a kit that's designed to take a real beating, with all the positioning flexibility that professional drummers demand. Drum Rocker's professional aluminum drum rack lets you position your snare, tom, and cymbal pads wherever you want.

Don't just play games. Play DRUMS!
When you're ready to move from playing Rock Band to playing in a rock band, you can swap the Drum Rocker's game controller module with one of the professional drum brains made by Alesis. Just plug the drum and cymbal pads directly into an Alesis Drum module, and you're ready to hit the road for real.

Ultra-quiet velocity sensitive pads
Drum Rocker's velocity-sensitive drum pads feature a playing surface that is much quieter than other drum controllers. They also feel great”the stick rebound off the pad is extremely natural and consistent. The pad housing is made of high-impact plastic designed to withstand beatings on stage night after night. No matter how much you punish them, the Drum Rocker drum pads are designed to take it.

The pads are mounted to the drum rack with a metal L-Arm and clamp system, which allows them to be tilted, swiveled, raised, and lowered to whatever position you want. Just one warning”once you play these pads, nothing else will do!

There's nothing like finishing a monster fill by whacking a crash cymbal, or crossing over to play your hi-hat with your right hand while you keep the backbeat on the snare with your left, or keeping time on a ride cymbal during the chorus. Drum Rocker lets you do all that and more, with cymbals that can be placed anywhere around the kit.

Drum Rocker comes with two cymbals and mounting hardware out of the box, and a third cymbal is available as an optional accessory. You get to decide how you want to use the two cymbals that come with the kit ” set them up as a hi-hat/crash, crash/ride, or hi-hat/ride combination, then add the third cymbal to round out the kit.

All-metal kick drum pedal
The kick drum pedal with any drum controller takes a lot of abuse. No need to worry with Drum Rocker”this pedal is all metal and built to last. It also has the right amount of tension to replicate the feeling of playing a real drum pedal.

The pedal comes with Velcro and retractable spikes, so you can be sure it will stay put. You're not limited to where you place it either”put the kick pedal wherever you feel most comfortable playing it.

My First Drumming Experience

By TheFreak

from Colorado

Comments about ION Drum Rocker Electronic Drum Set:

I've wanted to drum for most of my life. The ION Drummer Rocker has given me my first chance and so far I'm enjoying it a lot. Maybe I'll actually be able to cross over. From what I can tell the ION kit has the same components as the Simmons SDK5, so if you're looking for information about how this stacks up against an actual e-drum kit you can look at the reviews there. Here's my experience so far. Setup was not difficult. The instructions are sparse but puting it together was intuitive. Who reads instructions anyway? The first problem I encountered was when I realized I have no idea how the kit should be adjusted. Having no drumming experience I have no idea how to angle or position anything. Some kind of referance pictures or advice would be handy. Also, I had a wingnut partially strip out while mounting a cymbal. I quickly swapped it for a wingnut from a different component that didn't need as many threads. Adjustments are quick and easy but the clamps aren't perfectly stable so it's necessary to readjust occasionally while playing. This set is much quieter than the standard Rock Band drum set and in comparison, the feel of this set while playing is excellent. Also, I found using the cymbals instead of the pads when appropriate feels natural when I thought it might be confusing. The set is more responsive than the RB drum set so you have fewer missed notes while playing. The kick pedal also doesn't cause fatigue like I experienced with the standard drum set. So far the ION Drum Rocker has been well worth the money. I'd recommend this to any who hopes to transition to real drums someday or anyone you just really enjoys drumming in RB and wants a fuller, quieter experience.

People can say whatever they want about this kit. But its truly an amazing set. Its quiet, versatile, strong, workable, and really comfortable. Great for the game, and even better with the DM5 module.

By Thomas Hennick

Comments about ION Drum Rocker Electronic Drum Set:

When I was told that I could get a real drum set, I said there's noway. I saw the picture but didn't know that it would play better than it looked. Good job guy's, this set is outstanding, this is truly the best deal I've seen in a long time. I know it's just RockBand but I love the drums. Tom
