Newest electronic drum kits deliver unmatched playability, response, sound quality and versatility with amazing value
Cumberland, RI USA (January 23, 2018)—Alesis (alesis.com), the world’s leading manufacturer of electronic instruments and components for today’s musicians, today announced the introduction of two new electronic drum kits, the Surge Mesh and Command Mesh. Both are 8-piece kits (5 drums, 3 cymbals) with incredibly-responsive mesh heads on all drums for a playing experience that exceeds anything else in their class.
These are ideal sets for any drummer looking for a realistic, responsive playing experience in a compact set that’s easy to transport and set up
Surge Mesh Kit
The Surge Mesh Kit is a complete 8-piece electronic drum kit that includes everything a drummer needs to play like a pro. It features a 10” dual-zone mesh snare and three 8” dual-zone mesh tom pads for great feel and natural response, plus an 8” mesh kick tower pad with pedal. Three cymbals provide a virtually unlimited range of playing expression: a ride cymbal, crash cymbal with choke function and hi-hat. Not only do the mesh heads deliver unmatched response and playability, the compact size means the Surge Kit goes where larger kits can’t.
The chrome 4-post mounting rack keeps everything solid and secure so drummers can really play hard and the set won’t “travel” or lose its positioning. The setup also includes the powerful Surge Drum Module that features 40 drum kits with over 385 sounds and 60 play-along tracks and a built-in metronome. Hi-hat/kick pedals, sticks and cables are also included.
