With powerful all-mesh heads, the Alesis Turbo Mesh Electronic Kit is a fantastic choice for new drummers that wish to sharpen their skills. Mesh head, a solid aluminium frame, 10 premium quality drum kits and the inclusion of all needed accessories such as pedals, sticks, cabling and a drum key, this is the ultimate electronic kit ideal for beginners and intermediate players alike.
Excellent mesh response
The Alesis Turbo comes with a sturdy aluminium rack that allows you to set the mesh pads up so that the player gets the most comfortable experience possible. The mesh heads are also designed to respond much like an acoustic kit so that rudiments and dynamics can be practised accurately.
The snare drum features single-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.
Practical sound collection
The brains of the Turbo packs are 10 practical, ready to play kits with 120 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 Turbo Mesh is fully USB/MIDI compatible so it can be used with computer software or other musical equipment.
The kit that helps you improve
For absolute beginners, or those that want to improve their skills the Turbo will be your best friend. 30 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 Turbo may be hard to use, but this couldn't be further from the truth. The clearly labelled buttons and LED 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 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.
1-box is all you need
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 Turbo Mesh is incredible value for new to accomplished drummers who want a budget-friendly electric kit for practice and performance.
