Comments about Alesis Command X 9-Piece Electronic Drum Kit:

I received this kit from my wife for Christmas, long story short its simply a great kit for someone wanting a quality kit for a good price. I easily spend 3+ hours a day on it and never find myself bored with the sound it produces. Overall a great kit.

I have done a review on youtube titled "Alesis Command X 9 piece" if you want to make an educated purchase and see what it has to offer.

Awesome Drum Set

By Matt

from Fairfax, VA

Pros

  • Easy to edit sounds
  • Easy to set up
  • Great sound library

Cons

  • Only single zone cymbals

Best Uses

    Comments about Alesis Command X 9-Piece Electronic Drum Kit:

    I bought this drum set as an "extreme deal" from Guitar Center this Christmas. GC had a demo set on the floor and they sounded great. Delivery was actually early. Set up was fairly easy. Each component was individually boxed within one main box, so it became a giant jenga game getting the boxes back in once done. The footprint is not too bad

    The sounds are fantastic. Each drum kit is unique and sounds very realistic. The sound editing for each trigger is very easy and the manual is very intuitive.

    Each pad is high quality and responds well to drum rolls and ghost notes. The pads do not make too much noise. My wife upstairs can hear me play (not loud), but it's nothing compared to an acoustic set.

    My only two complaints (albeit minor ones). The fourth cymbal is really close in when you play, and all the cymbals are single zone, so no ride, edge, and bell for each. Not a big deal, considering I got the 4th cymbal for free.

    All in all, this drum set is fantastic and I am loving it so far.

    Solid set

    By DDiceDD

    from Orange County, CA

    Comments about Alesis Command X 9-Piece Electronic Drum Kit:

    Just set up our new Alesis Command X for Christmas and played around for awhile. I think this is a nice solid mid level set. The two most important pieces are mesh, the kick drum and snare. Being able to get different sound from the rims and the center of the drums even from the non mesh is surely useful. Drum sounds are really nice. The command module is much easier to use than the older style. The kick pedal that it comes with the set is a good starter pedal. I debated between this set and the full-mesh Crimson version for $300 more, I'm happy with the decision to buy this one. Good for our first electronic set.

      Comments about Alesis Command X 9-Piece Electronic Drum Kit:

      I recently purchased the Alesis Command X kit. The kit is easy to assemble and adjustable to fit about anyone's needs. The frame is solid which affords little to no movement while playing. I also purchased the Simmons DA200S drum amplifier which offers a great sound for the kit.
      I had to fine tune the canned "Rock Kit" as the tombs volume were not even. I had to switch some of the tombs to a different preset tombs as setting some of the tombs to max volume was not enough to match the other tomb volumes. This included adjusting the sensitivity settings of the tombs. I still need to try lowering all the volumes on the individual tombs (except the ones that are not loud enough) and increasing the master volume on the amp. Not a big deal but something Alesis needs to work on.
      There are a couple of things that need improvement. The snare has little rebound, my practice pad has a lot better rebound than the kit snare. The material on the snare reminds me of stretching a nylon for the drum head, it's a bit mushy. I had heard that the kick was too bouncy which I found is not the case. The kick has a good feel and rebound.
      The cymbals are keyed which is a good thing except for the ride cymbal as there is very little adjustment capability. I can't position the ride in a suitable position because you can't rotate the ride due to the keying. I'll need to find out if I can modify how it mounts to be able to use the ride. Overall I'm satisfied with the kit and would recommend it, I tend to be a perfectionist so the issues I encountered might not be issues for others.

                I have been a semi pro musician in the past meaning I got paid for gigs but didn't make a living from it.

                Being a bass player, I always worked closely with the drummers. I always messed around with their kits but you need serious practice time to get a groove and we all know how awful it is listing to someone else work out their flaws in practice.

                This is a great kit for doing just that. You can practice runs, fills, beats with the phones on. I kind of wished I had purchased the Crimson II but I had to hold the trial costs down. This is a good kit with a tunable snare head.

                It has lots of classic and electronic kits in the from 50 plus 20 or so user programmable kits which are fascinating.

                If I was a pro drummer I'd probably opt for one of the more elaborate kits.

                  Ive had this set for about 2 weeks and im loving it i wasnt expecting anything near what this set is. The reasoning for only giving it 4 stars is that the harware mounts for the deum pads and cymbal are kinda cheap.
