The Alesis DM10X (6 piece drumkit) is a "great midi kit" & well worth the investment into new technology. I'm enjoying using it as a double bass kit (a 7 piece kit total - with two seperate kick pads & two Axis X-L2 Longboard single pedals). I haven't gotten into the details or discovered all options offered with the DM10 "Brain" Module yet... I'm still currently blown away with all the preset voices before adding my other two "Real Acoustical Drumkits" sounds into it via ddrum triggers & vise versa for using the technology back on acoustic kits for "Live" performances/recordings. The only thing I'm not liking about the Alesis DM10X is the head tensioner lug bolts with nuts. They tend to back-off from set tensions, even during normal play modes. Wish it was like the tensioners on real drum hardware (probably copyrighted).. The other unliked quality about the Alesis DM10X is sometimes samples triggered on the rims activate while playing something else (another voicing) on the drum heads without even hitting the rim triggers... From vibration shocks. Maybe this is a manageable feature discovered in sensitivity settings if any. Playing on the Alesis DM10X has already increased my advanced performance pocket & comfy groove zone feel tremendously tighter than before. Now to just get guitarists & other musicians on the same page would be an accomplishment, ..without always blaming the drummer for their own time feel mistakes! UGGGHHHHHH!!!! haha

I have only one week with the DM10X, but I felt at times that there are sounds that blend in some tom, suddenly the sound associated sounds rim.
I hope to get a good calibration between the trigger and sensitivity, but this takes time.
Preprogrammed kits have a lot of variety of sounds, but for someone used to playing acoustic, the frustration is not finding any acoustic drum simulating a pre-programmed from the beginning; this is a marketing mistake. For now do not know if I would recommend it, hopefully change your mind.

      There are so many good qualities about this drum set. It is slightly confusing to get used to, but completely worth it. The delivery was quick also. Although, it comes all in one huge box so be prepared when getting it delivered.

      This purchase was my 2d set and couldn't be more happier with the Alesis DM10x kit. My first kit was for my own personal use and I've bought a 2d kit for my son that is interested in learning to play the drums. Needless to say, the kit has huge potentials for a beginning student to a professional musician both at home and on stage performance.

        Very happy with this set. The module has many very nice preset kits. The ease of creating a custom kit from scratch or by copying from an existing kit is fantastic. It is like playing a completely different drum kit for every song.

        Comments about Alesis DM10X 6-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

        This review relates to the pads only

        Depending on the price you pay for this kit:
        Excellent in comparison to similar price point pads ... AND ... Value compared to much higher priced pads.

        The 12" pads have a decent (medium weight) playing response. If you "club" your drums, you will feel them bottoming out (but what's the point of clubbing electronic drums?)

        IMPORTANT: The 12" pads stick sound & feel are much more pleasing to the ear (without the module's sound) than the 10" pad is.

        As stated elsewhere, they are NOT as quiet as a mesh head, but these large targets allow me to practice closer to real drum kit technique than smaller pads.
        Besides ... show me a REAL drum that feels as good as a Mesh head drum or pad.

        Truthfully, I can more closley approximate a real drum feel with these 12" pads than I can with a V drum (though I love being able to play above my level of technique with that springy mesh head rebound, consistent across all of the drums)
        And,I'm told a conversion to a mesh head is fairly easy(?)

        I love my investment in the DM10X kit, I replaced both 10" pads with 12"'s.

          Comments about Alesis DM10X 6-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

          After adjusting for two days was able to play drums live. After a month first trigger failed. Called MF they wanted me a to send them the whole drum set back. Asked them could they just sale me a new pad. (Should have sent it all back) MF Couldn't do that. So I used and old Pintech pad I had. I have had this set now a year and I now have four Pintech pads on it and just lost another pad this morning. Don't buy save your money and buy Roland. I have at my house two sets of Rolands. Church didn't have enough funds to buy the best at that time. For now I'am going to put another bandage and try to use till we can buy Rolands. Save your money and buy Rolands. Its a great product if you don't use it. We use it three or four times a week. The triggers just can't handle live performances.

              1} THE CROSS TALK IS ABSOLUTELY THE WORST..EVERY SETTING HAD TO BE ADJUSTED..
              YOU SHOULD JUST GET IT.. SET IT UP AND PLAY ALL THE KITS THAT ARE READY PROGRAMMED .. BUT YOU CAN'T!!! YOU SPEND HRS DOING A LOT WORK THE SHOULD HAD BEEN DONE..

              ALESIS GET IT RIGHT OR STOP MAKING ELECTRIC KITS..JUST SAYING!!!

              2}BUY ROLAND SET. I HAD ONE A FEW YEARS AGO AND IT WORK RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX.
              NO CROSS TALK. I SHOULD HAD KNOWN BETTER.
              ROLAND BY FAR HAS THE BEST YET..
              NOW I KNOW WHY THE ARE A LITTLE BIT MORE IN PRICE..BECAUSE THEY ARE THE BEST!!!!!!
