Alesis DM8 Pro Electronic Drum Kit Review

Because the kit is called Pro, we brought in a pro to show us what the latest Alesis electronic kit is all about. Alex Selph is a clinician, studio drummer, and touring performance drummer who plays in Atlanta and throughout the Southeast. We were fortunate enough to have him come in and demo the Alesis DM8 Pro Kit and he gave us some insight into how this kit feels and performs. Here are some specs:

  • DM8 high-definition drum module with over 750 Dynamic Articulation sounds
  • RealHead 8″, 10″, and 12″ drum pads with tension-adjustable drumheads
  • 12″ dual-zone Snare, 8″, 10″, and 12″ Toms, and 8″ Kick, which works with single and double pedals (sold separately)
  • DMPad 12″, 14″, and 16″ multi-zone cymbal pads with natural motion
  • 16″ 3-zone Ride with choke, 14″ Crash with choke, 12″ Hi-Hat with RealHat continuous pedal
  • StageRack with four-post design, integrated cymbal booms, and wingbolt-adjustable
