Alesis DM7X Session Kit Five-Piece Ultra-Compact Electronic Drum Set
Alesis has chosen to avoid making the mesh drum heads of other high-end electronic kits, instead using real drum heads and other plastic materials. This has resulted in high-quality entry and mid-level kits at reasonable prices. The Alesis DM6 used to reign supreme as the best budget kit but it’s been replaced by the DM7X Session. The Alesis DM7X Session is a newer model of electronic drum kit with a lot of improvements over the DM6.
It has a dual zone snare trigger, a better high-hat and the ability to choke the crash cymbals for added effects. The bass drum pad is horizontal instead of vertical but still offers the option of using an inverted bass drum pedal for added realism. In fact, these pads can function better than vertical low budget pads because they don’t move around a lot. The tone module contains 40 kits and allows the drummer to customize these kits along with a rhythmic training program, metronome and connectable to a computer through USB or MIDI. The kit is very compact and easy to use making it the best budget electronic kit available.
