OVERVIEW

Have fun while becoming a better drummer.

The Alesis E-Practice Pad is a fun way to learn and practice the drums. This electronic drum pad has 65 different drum sounds, a built-in metronome with six different sounds, and more than 50 practice games and exercises. The E-Practice Pad is way more fun than you can have with a standard practice pad. This drum pad feels great, it sounds great, and it gives you a full range of dynamics from the lightest touches through the loudest accents.

Just plug in your headphones and play silently or plug into an instrument amplifier or your stereo system and jam with other musicians. When you're not using the Alesis E-Practice Pad as a traditional practice tool, you can mount it on a standard cymbal stand or snare stand and use it on your drum set to expand your range of sounds.

Unlike a standard practice pad, the E-Practice Pad has an advanced metronome built in with six different sounds and the ability to play nearly any note value or subdivision in the time signature of your choice. On top of the metronome, the Alesis E-Practice Pad has advanced games, drumming exercises, and learning features like Beat Check, Stroke Balance, and even recording and playback so you can hear your performances. The E-Practice Pad is an instrument that helps you grow as a drummer, developing your time, dynamics, consistency, and more.

The E-Practice Drum Pad runs on batteries for portability or on wall power with the included adapter. You can add bass drum and hi-hat pedals using Alesis Expansion Pedals or any other footswitch.

    This is a great practice tool. From the beginner to the advanced.It has many more features than what is listed. The discription states 60 games and excersises, but just in the music game challenges alone there are 60. A kinda guitar hero type thing that you play patterns of different styles of music. It's cool. There are close to sixty other modes & parameters. Different time signatures, note displacement, multiple rythms, and one mode I've been diggen is the "Follow Me" feature where you set the time sig. & tempo and you play a rythm along with the metronome,and then the metronome stops for a few measures and starts back again. You find out if your on or off.It comes with two foot pedals for the hi-hat and base drum,plus sticks.The only con I would say is the LCD screen does not illuminate which is why I didn't rate all fives. I mean "Come On" Alesis! "BUT still a worth while purchase".

    Poor quality, horrible instructions, the bass drum and snare pedals are included but are marked in the book as optional extras and there is no instructions for how the unit works.
    It has some games and songs to play along with.
    After reading the reviews on this exact same unit and model on several other websites I was reluctant to order it. But there are not a lot of affordable choices for these e-drums. This unit has the same problem as the other people had with theirs. There is only a very faint sound of a snare drum when you hit the sticks on the pad. All the other sounds are very loud including the metronome and the bass drum and high hat. But the sound from the actual drum itself is almost none existant. This is with the sound all the way up using good headphones and also tried with a good ampifier. All the sounds are loud except the drum itself. And that is why we bought it! This is the same issue that has come up in reviews on the net for the exact same unit and model number. So it is a known problem. Also please be aware that this unit REQUIRES either headphones or an amp. There is only external sound of the metronome which is very loud.
    There is no value in having to talk to 2-3 people before they will replace a brand new item I have only had 3 days and is not working. I feel I should have been sent a replacement immedeatly.

    Comments about Alesis E-Practice Pad:

    I gave an E-Practice Pad to my brother for Christmas. It was the Stupid Deal of the Day. He couldn't figure out what to do with it when I gave it to him. After Christmas, he told me that he figured out you have to use headphones if you want to hear the drum pad. It sounded as though he likes it.

        Comments about Alesis E-Practice Pad:

        Reluctantly, I read the reviews after I purchased - and although I wasn't holding my breath to begin with, I got exactly what I was reading as far as the not so good reviews. The snare sound is faint compared to the metronome, you have to hit it way to hard to have the snare volume usable. It comes with the "optional kick and hihat pedals" -- I don't get that one, they made it sound like you had to buy them like an accessory so I searched for an hour trying to find a place to buy them. Anyhow - Save your money... use a table or practice pad. Too bad, I thought this would be a good way for my daughter to practice (she plays percussion in the school band) -- if it were easy, I'd ask for a refund and ship it back. Don't know how Alesis allowed this to be under their name of products when something as fundamental as having the snare sound be loud enough to be useful isn't happening.

          The variety of sounds is fun to play with. The follow me, & pattern settings help with poly rhythm work. Nice variety of metronome sounds. It is a good tool to have in your bag of tricks.

            Comments about Alesis E-Practice Pad:

            For half a hundred or so, you get a good sounding, responsive pad, a pair of sticks and two foot switches. Snare, bass, and cymbal sound are pretty good. And the pad has a good response.

            One shortcoming is that you can't adjust the relative volume of the pad, the sound produced by the kick pedal, and the sound produced by the hi-hat pedal. If you just use earphones, it's not a problem. However, if you'd like to use this as a minimalist e-drum set, the pad is quite lower in volume than the other two (remember, even though they're labelled kick and hi-hat, you can adjust the sound to any of those the unit can produce... so, for instance, you could set one as a small tom and one as a large tom.).

            One nice thing is that the kick and hi-hat pedals are simply momentary on-off switches. So, there's an opportunity to "roll your own" pedal. That's good, because the kick pedal, for instance, doesn't feel anything like a real-life kick. You can also roll your own cymbal with a low cost piezo element and a piece of hardboard (instead of spending as much for Alesis' e-cymbal as you did for this unit!).

            REMEMBER ... this unit doesn't have an audio speaker so you either have to use earphones or plug it into some sort of amplifier.

            All in all, a nice unit.

              I bought this pad to keep in the family room, and to learn some drum riffs. It's a great little pad with lots of sound! I know my son will enjoy practicing on it as well!

              Only thing I didn't like was the headphone volume was low even turned all the way up. I need to try another pair of headphones to make sure it's not them.

              Right out of the box it was easy to set up and use. Took a minute to figure out that the tiny speaker on the top right side was mostly decorative and you need to plug this into an AMP or headphones to hear. Also, the black rubbery pad surface started to show wear after 15 minutes of light use. Overall, very good practice product for the novice. A bit tricky to figure out initially due to scant instructional manual included with e-practice pad. Ok product.
