The Command kit from Alesis has everything you need to start learning the drums with added functionality over its little brother, the Forge Kit.
Like the Forge kit, it is supplied as a standard 5-piece drum kit but it has some added features including: 2 x 9" duel-zone tom pads, 11" dual-zone floor tom, 11" dual-zone mesh snare, mesh kick pad and kick pedal. The mesh heads are more responsive than their rubber counterparts and generally enhance the feel of the kit making it a more natural experience when playing with further reduced noise!
Also included are 3 x 10" cymbals: 1 x Hi-Hat, 1 x Ride and 1 x Crash cymbal with added 'choke' function for added dynamics. All of the above is mounted on a very sleek and sturdy 4-post chrome drum rack with boom arms for the cymbals, which can make all the difference for placement to help you feel more comfortable whilst playing.
The module itself includes 70 kits. 50 pre-set and 20 fully customisable kits for your own musical expression. This along side the duel-zone pads, means you can assign any sample to the rim of the drums to build up your arsenal without the added expense of additional pads.
You can also load .WAV samples and play-along tracks via USB memory stick for even more customisation options. Another great feature is the facility to make real-time recordings (5 tracks internally; up to 99 tracks via USB memory stick) or alternatively you can use the USB/MIDI connection to record onto a laptop or PC.
Overall, this kit would make a great addition for any level of player who is looking to practice quietly, record at home or even gig without sacrificing the feel or enjoyment of doing what we love.
