Alesis electronic practice pad presented @ Frankfurt Musikmesse:
The Alesis DM6 Kit highlights the best of Alesis’ 20 years of experience in professional electronic percussion gear. This electronic drumset features a completely new sound module with 108 quality drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds. Its pads feel great and its hardware and rack system are high quality.
Like all Alesis drumsets, the DM6 Kit features realistic, natural-feeling playing surfaces. To reduce vibration feedback, we selected natural rubber drum and cymbal surfaces for the DM6 Kit’s pads. This five-piece kit gets you started on a dual-zone snare pad for two-sound compatibility. You can dial in a snare drum sound in the center and a rim click, rimshot, or something totally different like a cowbell on the rim!
The TransActive Drummer is the practice amp designed for today’s electronic drummer. This complete, active system contains a powerful, active two-way speaker wedge with two sets of inputs, stereo outputs, and a dock for iPod. It’s perfect for practicing alone or with a band.
The TransActive Drummer enables musicians to connect their electronic drumset as well as an auxiliary source such as a metronome, sequencer, drum machine, CD player or any other audio playback device. The built-in dock for iPod enables drummers to mix and play along with their music, with no need for additional cables or mounting devices.
The Alesis E-Practice Pad is the fun way to learn and practice the drums. This electronic drum pad has 65 different drum sounds, a built-in metronome with six different sounds, and more than 50 practice games and exercises. The E-Practice Pad is way more fun than you can have with a standard practice pad. It feels great, it sounds great, and it gives you a full range of dynamics from the lightest touches through the loudest accents.
Just plug in your headphones and play silently or plug into an instrument amplifier or your stereo system and jam with other musicians. When you’re not using the E-Practice Pad as a traditional practice tool, you can mount it on a standard cymbal stand or snare stand and use it on your drumset to expand your range of sounds.
