OVERVIEW

Session-style performance matched with excellent sound.

Step up and start drumming with the DM7X Session 5-piece. Packed with premium Alesis sounds and onboard extras, the DM7X module is the heart of your new drumset. Extremely playable pads offer realistic extras such as a dual-zone snare for accurate rimshots, as well as a crash cymbal with choke. The enhanced bass drum system is fast, responsive, and extra-quiet. The sturdy, all-in-one drum rack features a wide stance with longer feet for improved balance. Compact and complete, the DM7X Session Kit fits easily into a home studio or performance stage. Add an extra tom pad and/or cymbal pad to grow this expandable kit as your needs change.

The DM7X module comes complete with 40 classic and modern ready-to-play kits. Easily tweak any existing kit, or create your own using the 385 premium drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds. Drum and cymbal buttons are arranged to resemble the layout of a traditional kit, so it's simple to assign sounds and create kits quickly. Plus, the backlit LCD screen makes navigation a breeze.

Inside the DM7X module you'll find valuable extras. The built-in learning mode features, sixty play-along music tracks, and an onboard metronome allow you to improve your skills. There is even an advanced sequencer and a performance recorder to expand your music-making potential. In addition to the USB MIDI connection for use with computers and mobile devices, the DM7X module also offers MIDI In and Out jacks so you can connect to your favorite MIDI-equipped drum machine, sound module or other audio gear. There is a headphone jack for private practice, plus stereo outs to connect to a PA system, amplifier, or recording interface. The stereo aux input allows you to jam along to your favorite tracks on your CD player or mobile device.

The entire DM7X Session Kit sets up on a compact and sturdy 2-post drum rack. The wide stance and long feet offer stability for any style of drumming. Four Alesis DMPad 8" drum pads are provided; three tom pads and a special dual-zone snare pad offering realistic rim sounds. Next, add in a collection of three 10" cymbal pads-crash, ride, and hi-hat. The crash cymbal pad allows authentic choking of the cymbal sound. Quiet and compact, the bass drum system includes the responsive chain-driven X Kick pedal with an inverted beater for use with the super-silent StealthKick 2 trigger. Additionally, a cable snake is provided for easy and neat connections from the drum module to the drum pads, cymbal pads, and pedals.

    replacement nuts, bolts, and screws

        Comments about Alesis DM7X Session Electronic Drumset:

        Nuts, bolts and screws tend to loosen over time with use - fair enough. Replacement of lost nuts, bolts, and screws, however, is hugely time-consuming as Alesis do not use any standard sizes for their nuts, bolts, and screws. You cannot simply purchase new ones at your local hardware store, but rather will have to spend hours looking online and/or locally for a vendor who sells the unusual sizes - i find this utterly annoying, so much so that i think i will not purchase alesis products anymore as nuts screws and bolts regularly fall out, or get stripped,and eventually are lost.

        Decent E-Drum Kit

        By Reliant_E

        from Danville, IL

        About Me Experienced

        Pros

        • Good For Practice
        • Good Trigger Response
        • Responsive
        • Sensitive

        Cons

        • Cheap Spring On B-pedal
        • Flat Sound
        • Poorly Made
        • Velcro Comes Off Easy

        Best Uses

          Comments about Alesis DM7X Session Electronic Drumset:

          The Alesis DM7X Electronic Drum Kit is a decent kit over all. Some of the sounds are pretty good on the kit. It took under 45 minutes to put together and was easy to adjust. Some of the sounds on the kit don't sound good at all. The 40 Already Downloaded Kits that come with the Module are terrible and sound exactly the same. I don't play very hard on the kit at times, and the spring on the Bass Pedal snapped after playing it recently. As a Drummer, I like playing for fun and getting into the music. I shouldn't have to tell Alesis to make their accessories a little stronger especially when drummers sometimes hit hard. The Velcro also came loose after playing for a few days. Not a huge deal, but it got kind of annoying when I played and it moved around. Another thing about the bass pedal, the Beater that is able to "Screw in" in the hole in the piece won't tighten. Every time I play the beater swivels around and misses the pad. That's a bit annoying. But like I said, overall it is a decent kit for Beginners looking to practice in a smaller home without neighbors or parents being disturbed. Alesis is a pretty good company. But if your an experienced player like myself, just buy an acoustic kit. Thank you Musicians Friend for free shipping and a fast delivery though! -Ethan

          Comments about Alesis DM7X Session Electronic Drumset:

          I bought this for my nephew as a starter drum set.
          He can spend hours in the garage at any time of day or night playing this set through headphones and not bother anyone.
          PLUS he does't feel all embarrassed when he messes up, coz nobody can hear his mistakes except for him.
          Everybody wins.
          It has some really nice sounding pre-sets. And the built in metronome is a terrific feature.
          The ability to plug your iPod in and play-along to your fave songs, is an excellent feature…. its like having built-in drum lessons for FREE!
          Right now he's loving playing along to the AC/DC catalog. Nice easy 4 count drums to play along to!

          Comments about Alesis DM7X Session Electronic Drumset:

          Ok, the brain is decent. The tom pad are ok. My favorite pads on this set are the snare and the crash with choke. Hi hat pedal has issues. The cymbals and pads are very sensitive. Ok bottom line Alesis makes good products. The cons to this set are the tom pads and hi hat pedal. The pros are you can do a lot with the brain and the snare and crash pads. So that being said save a little extra cash and get the next kit up that has all double trigger pads. Also I own the Alesis DM 10 and bought this kit to add pads and another brain to my set up because it was so cheap. Let me tell you if I could take the brain from my Alesis DM, all double trigger pads like the snare drum on this kit, and the bass and cymbals that came with the DM 10 you have a pretty nice electric set. The rubber pads like the snare on this set are better than the DM 10 pads upgraded with mesh heads. It even plays with a better feel. I would buy this kit for the price again for the pads but I hope this review helps!

          • Instructions Too Terse
          • Mechanical Issues

          Best Uses

            Comments about Alesis DM7X Session Electronic Drumset:

            This kit arrived only 3 days after ordering, well
            packed and all parts strong and well built.
            Assembly easy, check for correct clamp positioning
            as you go. Rugged yet lightweight when assembled.

            Audio quality excellent, plenty of headphone volume, vol control also sets level to ext. amp

            Recommend good closed-air phones for practice as they help attenuate unwanted stick-to-rubber sounds especially on cymbal pads.

            Kit comes with 1 dual-zone snare pad and 3 single-zone tom pads. Module supports add-on
            of 2 more single- or dual-zone pads and later
            replacement of the single-zone toms w/ dual-zone
            pads if desired.

            Response and sound of tom pads and bass pedal are
            fine, snare and cymbals may need some adjustment
            of voices and settings to get best dynamic response. The velocity curve 5 in pad settings
            seemed to help. Cymbal pads feel a little akward to me and don't really compare with acoustic cymbals in terms of response and feel, but they work and they do sound good. The different feel seems to be less of an issue when using phones.

            Learning and practice features are good but instructions too terse and disjointed, no voice library documentation at all - sorely needed.
            Module seems complex at first, gets easier as
            you go.

            Users may wish to do 3 simple mods to correct
            these mechanical issues found when playing:

            1. 3' dowel or rod ran through bass pedal
            and tied to uprights will stop forward
            creep of pedal.

            2. As designed, cymbals cannot be placed in
            ideal locations directly above uprights.
            By making and adding brackets you can
            attach clamps to top of uprights so that
            cymbal rods slide up and down inside
            upright posts.
            (the post top cap pries off easily)

            3. Since module would support a 3rd
            mounted tom, the module mounting design
            should allow placement under and in front
            of the crossbar with 3 toms above it -
            you can easily add PVC to move module to
            this position and it will still clear
            your knee when playing bass pedal.

            Overall very happy with kit, no serious deficiencies found at all, mechanical issues were easy to correct with simple mods. Strong and
            very portable even fully assembled. Good value, sounds fine, expandable, easy to use, fun and satisfying to play. my rating 4.5 out of 5
