The Forge kit from Alesis has everything you need to start learning the drums.
It is supplied as an 8-piece drum kit including 3 x 8" tom pads, 11" dual-zone snare, kick pad and kick pedal, all of which provide a great, natural feel when playing without all of the noise!
Also included are 3 x Cymbals: 1 x Responsive 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 which enables better placement to help you feel more comfortable whilst playing.
What makes this kit stand out from others on the market is the module. Not only is it packed full of great features such as 60 play along tracks, 600 individual sound samples and built in metronome but it also features up to 70 different drum kits! (50 pre-set and 20 customisable) enabling you to put your own personality to your playing.
You can 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.
All of these great features amount to a solid, comfortable and versatile kit that can cater for those just venturing into the world of drums, schools or colleges looking for a good quality, affordable set up, right up to the more experienced player that may not have the space to have an acoustic kit and needs something to keep practising or to make some home recordings.
