This is an excellent kit or the price tag offered . I recently moved Into an apartment and needed a kit to be able to practice fast , I also have a few projects that I needed to have something portable to rehearse with in similar sound restricting environments The Alesis dm lite has fit all of those needs . Playability is great off of the bat my only pet piece is not being able to use a real kick pedal. After two weeks of use my pedal broke and started miss triggering unfortunately I did not order from here . Hopefully I can get the trigger swapped for a pad trigger. The training couch function. Is huge I have noticed a clean up in my playing from just 2 weeks of using It . All though there are only 10 sounds they are all very useful

I picked this set up used from MF. It's not bad for the price but I quickly decided I needed something better. The kick pedal lasted about five days before it stopped working, but the set was used. My biggest issues were not being able to add on a double bass pedal and I assume it won't accept other add ons either. It's built light which is good for travel and storage but it will move around a bit when you get playing. I haven't knocked it over but I don't think it would take much to do so. Another issue is layout. Unless the kit is modified, the snare is far enough under the hi hats that you'll hit sticks together, unless the hats are moved unnaturally far away. I decided to exchange this kit, spend some more money and upgrade to the DM8 Pro.

      Comments about Alesis DM LITE Five-Piece Electronic Drumset:

      I bought this for myself with Christmas money, and it sounded great and was a big help for me to get into drums for the 4 months that I had it. Just now though, the kick pedal went out on me. Don't know where to get another one so I'm just going to focus on getting an acoustic drum set where that kind of misfunction won't happen. I would not buy this kit again. Don't waste your money like I did.

        been playing drums for almost my entire life. got this set because it was cheap and had decent reviews. Ive had this set for about 2 weeks. little did I know the piece that hold the "cymbals" on are plastic. I was playing last night and 2 of the cymbals fell off. cannot be repaired. I thought drums were meant to be banged on. guess not with this hunk of junk

              I'm not a drummer but I bought this for my jam room. It sounds great, saves room, and most drummers I've invited see to like considering they can just come and play. It's also great for keeping a low level on practices so my neighbors are happier too.
