The Alesis Strike Pro Special Edition Electronic Drum-kit is an 11-piece electronic drum kit with full-sized 20-inch kick, the latest-generation mesh heads and an updated Strike Pro Module with more instruments, kits and versatility than ever before. The full-sized kick gives drummers an unprecedented degree of response and impact unmatched by any other electronic kit, enabling the Strike Pro Special Edition to absolutely redefine the playing experience and realism for electronic drums.
A new Standard
The original Alesis Strike drums were revolutionary, featuring all-new drum and cymbal design. The new Strike Pro Special Edition builds on that rich heritage, most notably with its full-sized 20-inch kick drum. It looks and feels like an acoustic drum. When drummers sit behind the Strike Pro Special Edition with its full-size kick, the playing and visual feel is fundamentally identical to an acoustic set. There isn't any adjustment period that players usually have to deal with. Strike Pro Special Edition’s kick is solid and sturdy, with no wobble.
Just like the real thing, yet more
It responds and feels like an acoustic bass drum. However, there is far more that makes the Strike Pro Special Edition an extraordinary playing experience than just the full-sized kick. To begin with, the Strike Pro Special Edition utilises all-new latest-generation mesh heads, dual-zone for the snare and all the toms. Their response is faster, more natural and easier-playing than ever before. Drummers will fly over these heads, effortlessly laying down powerful grooves and snapping off crisp fills. These heads won’t fight you; instead, these new Alesis mesh heads are your best ally
Ticket to Ride
The 3-zone Strike Pro Special Edition 16-inch ride cymbal, 14-inch crash, and 14-inch movable hi-hat feel spectacularly realistic: They are covered with a new thick comfortable rubber that creates the perfect blend of feel, control, bounce and volume. The cymbals offer a large bell area for enhanced playability, along with a cool “hammered” look. Plus, these cymbals are much quieter than traditional e-cymbals, perfect for late-night practice sessions when volume needs to be minimised. The new hi- hat, in particular, sets a new e-standard for fast response, solidity and its amazing ability to convey a deft, subtle touch.
Stylish and sleek design
Strike Pro Special Edition‘s lugs are attached directly to the shell, exactly like those in acoustic drums. The direct adjustment offered by these lugs adds an extra element of realism to the Strike Pro SE. Strike Pro Special Edition premium Hybrid Birchwood shell snare and toms come in standard acoustic drum sizes (8-, 10-, 12-, 14-inch) so drummers instantly feel at home when they sit behind them. Alesis recognises that aesthetics also play a role in the overall satisfaction and positive attitude with which a musician approaches their instrument. To that end, the Strike Pro Special Edition boasts truly striking black hardware and gold tension rods, along with a brand-new visually-distinctive mesh head design. Looking great while sounding great is a deadly combination.
Unprecedented Flexibility and over 45,000 samples
The Strike Pro Module is by far the most versatile and capable module that Alesis has ever offered. A large measure of the amazing playability and character of this kit is due to the expansive sound library with over 136 custom kits made from over 1800 instruments and 45,000 samples. The module has on-board sampling capability, 16GB external card storage, and USB/MIDI connectivity, which you can use in conjunction with your favourite music production software as well as the powerful new Strike Software Editor. With this editor, players can assemble their own custom samples into multiple velocity layer and round-robin instruments, piece together the perfect drum kit, and then transfer it onto the module via USB. Every feature and control is incredibly easy to keep track of, thanks to the Strike Pro Module’s 4.3-inch colour LED screen, which displays all the player’s settings and choices at a quick glance. It adds up to unprecedented flexibility and programmability, combined with total mastery of the kit’s status.
