DM10 X Drum Kit
The DM10 X Kit is a premium six-piece professional electronic drum set.
The DM10 X Kit is a premium six-piece professional electronic drum set with 10" and 12" drum pads, 12", 14", and 16" cymbals, the top-of-the-line DM10 module and the best-in-class chrome-plated XRack. With an advanced sequencer and more than 1,000 sounds featuring Dynamic Articulation multi-sample technology, the DM10 X Kit will bring you professional capability in a kit that sounds as good as it looks.
Designed with an emphasis on performance and adaptability, the DM10 X Kit’s all-new XRack is rugged, chrome-plated and features an ultra-solid four-post design. New Alesis quick-release clamps secure each pad in place and allow you to rearrange your setup in seconds without tools and without having to take the rack apart. A few turns of a T-bolt is all it takes to release a clamp and move a pad. The DM10 X Kit’s snare pad comes with a separate, fully adjustable snare stand that allows you to place the snare pad precisely where you want it.
The DM10 X Kit also features Alesis’ acoustic-feeling RealHead pads in 10 and 12-inch sizes. The dual-zone pads feature real mylar drumheads and real triple-flanged counterhoops for the feel you demand. The snare and tom pads are dual zone, enabling you to perform rimshots, rim clicks or assign other sounds such as cymbals, gongs and cowbells on the tom rims. You can use virtually any single or double kick pedal with the RealHead Kick Pad, or split the DM10's kick input with a Y-cable and connect an optional second kick pad for the pedal feel you prefer.
