I'm quite impressed with the build quality, and the sounds are decent, as well. Brain is easy to program. The weak link is the 25 pin cable. If one part develops a short, or disconnect, the whole thing is toast. Mine came with a bent rim on that connector, which I straightened with a pair of needle nose pliers. Not everyone will have those handy. Added a Roland V-Drum pad, and a Yamaha cymbal pad to fill out all of the connectors.

The USB connection appears to have way too much latency to record, or practice using Superior, or another drum software. I'll try other ports, but I might have to use the MIDI out port, and another interface. Comes with everything you need in the box, including a drum key, and a pair of sticks, which looks like maybe 7Bs, wooden tips.

Bought this pad to fill out an Alesis Surge kit. I am not a drummer., but I find the sensitivity on this pad to be quite poor compared to the Alesis cymbals in the Surge kit. Acceptable, but not ideal. Too much trouble to remove from the rack, and return, so I'll keep it. I won't recommend it, however.

    Comments about Alesis Surge Mesh-Head Electronic Drum Set:

    I've been learning drums on and off over the past year and finally decided to get an electric kit so I can practice whenever I want.
    One of the big things I was concerned about was responsiveness of the bass pad for double bass drumming.
    I have tried other electric kits in this price range and have had to return them due to a lack of responsiveness.
    I scoured youtube and reviews before buying this to try and see if it would fit my needs until I finally just decided to buy it and find out myself (hence why I titled my review as I did).
    For the fact that this is a $500 electric kit with mesh heads and is responsive enough for double bass drumming/blast beats (IE Metal drumming) I have to give it 5 stars. I haven't found anything else in this price range that meets these needs.
    A nice bonus was being able to re program the rims for each pad to be whatever sound I wanted.
    So my snare has a rim shot, my 1st tom has a cow bell, my 2nd tom has a deeper crash, and my floor tom has a tighter hi hat.

    The only down sides are: It does not seem to have a way to leave the hi hat pad "closed" without leaving a weight on the pedal and the brain certainly needs some more snare sounds.

      Comments about Alesis Surge Mesh-Head Electronic Drum Set:

      Very nicely constructed pedal, with a high voltage tube stage. It appears to only be using one of the triodes in the tube, but it still gives it a nice, organic driven tone**. The tone controls are limited IMO, but do give some adjustability in the tone. Same annoying Vox LED behind the tube. I wish they would eliminate that. The design is pleasing, but the pedal is wider than a Roland-Boss-style pedal, by what looks like about 20mm or so (about 3/4"). Everything feels sturdy, and solid. The switch action is very smooth.

      It might be possible to wire in the second triode, but getting the pedal apart will be a bit of a challenge. Having no external fasteners to undo, you'll be pulling lots of those thin pot nuts off to gain access to the innards. I modify almost everything I use for recording, or gigging, so this is a minor annoyance.

      I bought this on sale, and feel it has enough value to keep it. I would recommend this to someone looking for a pre-drive pedal for a live rig, or something to bump up the input drive for a rack system, like Eleven, etc..

          This is my first electric drum set, I've been playing acoustic sets for 20 years, my daughter was just born figured I'd give it a shot. I've been very impressed so far, sounds great very responsive super sensitive. Only thing I don't like it you can really get a good roll on the snare or high hat as you would on a acoustic set. For a cheaper set I'm very happy, I like how I can hook my iPad up to it and play songs with headphones on, closest thing to actually playing with a band. If this is your first electric drum set I'd say it's worth every penny.

          Comments about Alesis Surge Mesh-Head Electronic Drum Set:

          I've had the Alesis Surge kit for about 2 weeks now and I thought it was time to write a review. Let me start by saying this isn't my first electronic drum kit and I've been playing for over 7 years. Right out of the box the Alesis Surge kit looks great, the sturdy chrome frame and all black pads give it a looks similar to kits worth twice as much. The response from the new mesh heads is ok but with some tuning of the sensitivity, threshold, and curve velocity you can get it to sound great. The cymbals used for this kit are exactly the same from the ones used in the Alesis nitro kit which are subpar at best and their ability to be choked leaves much to be desired. Thus if you play many songs that require this feature you should probably look elsewhere for your next drum kit. The bass drum...... as is common with low end Alesis kits the bass drum is an issue, when using headphones it sounds like a faint electronic ding that is barely audible. After some tuning I was able to get a decent sound out of it that allows you to hear it better during recordings than while you are actually playing it. This is my biggest issue with this kit and I ran into a similar problem with the Alesis nitro kit. This can be easily fixed if you connect your computer and use drum software such as superior drummer, but I wanted to try both out for those that won't be purchasing drum software. The drum module itself is the Alesis Nitro drum module, if you've had a chance to use it you know its limitations. The module comes with a limited number of kits that sound almost all the same, there are over 100 voices per pad that you can choose from but overall they sound the same. The module comes with practice sounds, an aux in to connect your ipad, phone, mp3 device to play alongside your favorite tracks, midi in and out, and connections for audio. The module does have a recording feature that last about 100 measures and you can only save 1 song at a time. Overall I would recommend for practicing.

            Comments about Alesis Surge Mesh-Head Electronic Drum Set:

            A decent set of sounds that you might think come from their respective synth original patch set, but it ain't so. I used to own an SY77, and none of the few sounds were from the factory set. Fair enough, as I know that licensing from these companies might present a problem. The sounds are good, some very good, but not five stars worth of good. Yes, there are fat pads, and nice synth sounds, but you might very well find yourself using these for pre production, and replacing them with bigger sounds in production, or post. For the price, a nice addition to my toolkit.

Acceptable, but not ideal. Too much trouble to remove from the rack, and return, so I'll keep it. I won't recommend it, however.
