      OVERVIEW

      The DM7X 6-Piece by Alesis has it all. This kit serves up plenty of drums and cymbals, an intuitive module with hundreds of sounds, and ties it all together with a preassembled rack that will have you playing in minutes. In addition to the low-noise Stealth Kick 2 compact trigger pad, the DM7X 6-Piece drum set features ultra-quiet rubber drum and cymbal pads, making it the ideal choice for professional drummers who want an advanced electronic kit for quiet practice. The appeal doesn't stop there. The DM7X Kit is an excellent choice for any electronic percussionist, whether you're just starting out, or looking to upgrade to a higher-quality kit with a professional module.

      The DM7X module is filled with sounds-and surprises. The backlit LCD screen makes navigation a breeze. 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. The DM7X comes complete with 40 classic and modern ready-to-play kits. Easily tweak any existing kit, or create your own using the 385 superior drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds included in the DM7X module.

      Great as they are, sounds are just the beginning. Inside the DM7X module you'll also find valuable extras. The built-in learning 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 up some old school MIDI In and Out jacks so you can hook up 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 console. The stereo aux input allows you to jam along to your favorite tracks on your CD or MP3 player.

      The DM7X Kit comes with more drums, more sounds, and more features than any other kit in its class. Start counting with five advanced design 8" dual-zone drum pads-four toms plus the snare. Next, add in an assortment of four 10" cymbal pads with choke: hi-hat, ride, and two crash cymbals. Finally, top it all off with the Stealth Kick 2 compact kick trigger pad, paired with the chain-driven Pro X Kick pedal. The preassembled fold-out stand makes it easy to get everything in place so that you can start playing quickly and easily.

      This expanded e-kit combines advanced features and great sound.

      Have had the kit for two weeks and it's more than I expected. Always played acoustic up til now.
      Pre-assembled rack is a plus. Unit seems well made with quality materials. If you have experience setting up a kit, the rest of the assembly comes pretty easily.
      Sound thru headphones is quite good. Have not yet connected to an amp or external speakers.
      Connect a laptop or Ipod and play along to anything in your collection
      Positioning the cymbals, especially hi-hat, takes some trial and error to find the best playing positions. I'm still working on this.
      Heads are responsive, similar to some practice pads. 8" pads make you focus on the hitting area, which is a good thing
      I was concerned about the unique kick pad but that unit is a big plus. Pedal is provided and the pad is more responsive than I thought it would be.
      Hi-hat pedal seems to require a bit more pressure than what you may be used to with a regular stand but this may be part of the learning process with an E-set
      Only been 2 weeks but so far I'm quite satisfied with the kit. Can practice without disturbing others and still get a good sound thru the phones.

      The unit was XMAS present for my kid. Unfortunately the hard plastic joints on the unit were all cracked when I opened it up to assemble it. This was really strange since the box was not damaged and it would take a lot of pressure to crack these joints in transit. My guess is this unit was broken prior to shipping so I might question the level of quality controls in manufacturing.

      After over 90 minutes to setup the new unit (the directions were not great), the kit is perfect for what my son was looking for in a drum set. He plays guitar, piano and wanted the drums to layer in on his mixing software.

            Not that easy to assemble took about 2 hours and the cymbals chock does not always work and the snare pad always seems to fall from the play ... has a good sound for most kits ,, base drum pedal is not that fast but I use this kit instead of my Pearls when we play small venue's for the price I figured I would give it a shot!!

            Broken Bracket

            Comments about Alesis DM7X Six-Piece Electronic Drumset:

            As warned by lots of people, one of the tee brackets was already broken when the box was opened. MF would be happy to exchange the unit but could not just exchange the bracket. So 2 hours to repackage and another 2 hours to re-setup seemed a bit much for a 14 dolar bracket. We'll see how the epoxy repair holds up, if not, it looks like duct tape for my brand new drum set.....

                  Hesitant about electric drums at first, until it came in just before Christmas. Putting it together was somewhat of a challenge, but when it was set, I turned it on and wow!!!! It blew me away. From jump, it performed way better than I imagined and after using it to record, a kid can do it and sound like a pro.

                    Love the set as a first time drummer, fairly easy to set up even though i personally got nothing but a one page picture, with no instructions on the assembly.

                              I bought this to use in my studio as a midi controller. I connect it to Pro Tool and Logic X via USB while using Kontakt 5 as well as Logic Drummer. This kit is perfect for such a task. It is responsive, easy to use, and its settings are easy to change. If you are connecting it to a DAW you may have to remap the drums a little bit depending on what software you are using. I also bought a second kick trigger/pedal to link to the one that comes with the set, and it all works great. The on-board sounds for this kit are pretty good too. I wouldn't do any professional recording with them, but they are much better than other kits I have heard.
