GAK REVIEW: Alesis Strike Pro Electronic Drum Kit – PRE ORDER NOW!

The Alesis Strike Pro is an electronic drum kit that looks, feels and plays like a normal kit but has the added features of an electronic kit. Alesis are confident that there has never been a more powerful and capable electronic drum set that the Strike Pro.

Alesis introduce its innovative new Strike Pro electronic drum kit family – the first-ever electronic kits to deliver the very best of both acoustic drums and electronic drums in terms of looks, feel, sound quality and control. Drummers looking to move beyond a conventional acoustic set have never been totally happy with the feel or looks of an electronic kit. The Alesis Strike finally has the solution.

To start, the Strike features all-new drum and cymbal designs. The drums have larger dual-hoop pads with adjustable Mesh heads, which deliver a natural and responsive drumming experience. Strike’s premium multi-ply wood shell drums are available in standard acoustic drum sizes (8-10-12-14″) so drummers feel at home when they sit down to play.

The new 3-zone Strike 16″ ride cymbal, 14″ crash, and 12″ movable hi-hat cymbals are an exciting step forward. They feel very realistic: They are covered with a new thick comfortable rubber that creates a great blend of feel, control and volume. The cymbals offer a larger bell area for better playability, along with a unique “hammered look.” Plus, the cymbals are much quieter than ever before!

Once Alesis had combined the best of the acoustic and electronic playing experience, they also raised the bar with the all new Strike module. The Strike Performance Module has a factory sound library with 200 custom kits made from over 1000 instruments. The module has onboard sampling capability, SD 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. Every feature is easy for the player to keep track of, thanks to the Strike Module’s 4.3-inch colour LED screen, which displays all the player’s settings and choices at a quick glance.

The Alesis Strike Pro shatters all your pre-conceived notions about electronic drums.
