As the successor to the exceptionally popular Alesis DM6 USB Kit, the Alesis DM Nitro is an 8-piece electronic drum kit that manages to cram in an incredible amount of features. Dual zone snare sensor and cymbal choke detection, 40 premium quality drum kits and the inclusion of all needed accessories such as bass drum pedal, sticks, cabling and a drum key, this is the ultimate electronic kit ideal for beginners and intermediate players alike.
Comfortable and responsive
The Alesis DM Nitro comes with 4-post aluminium rack that allows you to set the pads up so that the player gets the most comfortable experience possible. The thick 8" rubber pads are also designed to respond much like an acoustic kit so that rudiments and dynamics can be practised accurately.
The snare drum features dual-zone technology so that rim-shots and powerstrokes can be sounded out with great clarity which also delivers a very authentic playing experience. The ride and crash cymbals have choke detection meaning that the player can grab the cymbal after hitting it to bring it to a sudden end, just like acoustic cymbals - these are features that you would usually find on much more expensive electronic kits.
Pick your sound
The brains of the DM Nitro packs in an incredible 40 ready to play kits with 385 drum and cymbal sounds in total. Each kit has been sampled with exceptional detail so that the sound corresponds perfectly to the players dynamic performance. For the more adventurous, the DM Nitro is fully USB/MIDI compatible so it can become part of your studio or stage workflow.
Practice makes perfect
For absolute beginners, or those that want to improve their skills the DM Nitro will be your best friend. 60 built in songs allow you to practice timing, dynamics all whilst having fun. The sequencer allows you to capture and critique performances so that you can build your skills. A dedicated learning mode will help you play fundamental beats and have you jamming along like a pro in no time.
With so many features, you would think that the DM Nitro may be hard to use, but this couldn't be further from the truth. The clearly labeled buttons and bright LCD display make for very simple operation so that you can get into your drumming as quickly as possible.
For times when silent practice is needed, a headphone and stereo output let you rock out whilst keeping quiet. A stereo input lets you connect CD, MP3 or any other audio source for you to play along with.
Unbox and start jamming
Along with the frame, pads, cymbals and pedals you will also get a pair of sticks, all required cables and a drum key to put things together with ease. The Alesis DM Nitro provides staggering value for money and will make drumming fun and productive.
