OVERVIEW

This wireless practice amp is a perfect companion for any e-kit.

Created for todays electronic drummers, the TransActive Drummer Wireless is the perfect companion to your Alesis”or any”electronic drum set. The addition of wireless Bluetooth audio reception provides an ideal way for playing along to your favorite songs, or to practice using lessons downloaded to your Bluetooth device. Single-button Bluetooth pairing makes it simple.

INNOVATIVE DESIGN
The versatile TransActive Drummer Wireless is excellent as a stage amp, monitor, or practice amp. Recessed handles allow for easy transport, and the metal grille provides added protection. The angled front of the TransActive Drummer Wireless offers the correct monitoring position for the seated drummer. Nearly all connections are made on the back panel, keeping the top-mounted controls clean and clutter free for quick access during performance or practice.

BLUETOOTH BOUNTY
In addition to the Main and Aux inputs, the TransActive Drummer Wireless allows stereo reception from any Bluetooth equipped device. This unique addition is a powerful practice aid for any drummer. Download rudiments and lessons to your Bluetooth device, or improve your skills by playing along to your favorite tracks. A dedicated volume knob is provided on the top panel.

SONIC BOOM
The TransActive Drummer Wireless provides 100 Watts of power. Sound is delivered through a 10" low-frequency driver, assisted by a 1" tweeter. Together, these components handle the rapid transients created by an electronic drum set. The top panel controls are easily accessible during performance. Bass, middle and treble controls provide detailed sound shaping, and the master volume lets you keep your level in check.

READY TO RUMBLE
The rear-panel offer main left and right 1/4" inputs, plus a pair of stereo aux inputs featuring RCA jacks for use with a sampler, mixer, or other audio equipment. The Stereo Link system allows two TransActive Drummer Wireless amps to be used together in a stereo configuration. The main left and right outputs are also fitted with 1/4" jacks, and allow for connection to a PA system or even a recording interface. Up top is a convenient headphone jack that mutes the speakers for private playing. The handy 5V / 1A USB charging port allows users to keep their device charged while in use.

100 Watts?

By CelticMisfit

from Georgia

About Me Experienced

See all my reviews

Comments about Alesis Practice/Monitor Amp for Electronic Drums:

For something that is supposed to have 100 Watts of power, the output is rather quiet. I expected more volume by far. My 100 watt bass amp and my 40 watt guitar amp blow this thing away with respect to loudness. Perhaps I am comparing apples and oranges a bit, but this is a disappointing quality. I have only had the product a day or two, and have yet to fully test it. To be fair, on the pro side of things it seems to be well constructed, nicely portable for its size, and easy to use.

      Comments about Alesis Practice/Monitor Amp for Electronic Drums:

      Use this amp for drum machine in live performance. We used to run drum machine through the PA system but it conflicted with the vocals and acoustic guitars. This amp sounds crisp and clean and we can put the drum behind us like a "real" drummer. It vastly improved our sound. We play at small clubs and coffee houses of about 100 -125 people and this amp has plenty of volume to fill the spaces and then some. Got a great deal on the SDOTD and am glad I made the purchase. The unit seems well made and is light and portable.

        Compact and well built. Makes my electronic kit sound good. Not real loud or powerful unless you turn all the controls up fully. Works well with my acoustic/electric bass , too. Very satisfied considering the deal I got.

          Comments about Alesis Practice/Monitor Amp for Electronic Drums:

          I wanted a practice amp that would do justice to or enhance my electronic drum kit's sounds. In other words, I didn't want something that would make the kit sound even less like an acoustic set. The Alexis is warm, clear, and has oomph--so it projects a sound that is much better than the big guitar amp I was using and matches what I was hearing through a good set of headphones. This is ideal for practicing alone, or with a couple of other instrumentalists in a basement, garage, maybe a small café.

          But it is not earth-shaking, window-rattling, filling-dislodging loud. I have read other reviews complaining about this lack of thunderous power, but if you read the specs, this is not billed as something with which a gigging drummer can play with U2 at Red Rocks. It's compact, easily portable, yet it is also made extremely sturdily and has awesome clarity. I have not used the Bluetooth feature, but I have run an mp3 player through the speakers and the music sounded crystal clear with great bass.

          I highly recommend this drum amplifier/monitor, as it lives up to its description and is built to last. It is perfect for a jam session or small room, and can do double-duty as a monitor if you play in a larger hall.

                  Comments about Alesis Practice/Monitor Amp for Electronic Drums:

                  i just started learning drum for awhile. the reason i am buying this amp is for my roland td15 drum set. i am not a tech guy so i cant tell too much about the quality of sound. when i was doing research, i was choosing among roland pm10, simmons da 50 and this alesis monitor. in terms of price and features, this one is the best. while i was still hesitating which one to get, the price dropped from 199 to 159 in musician friend (i was planning to wait for black friday sale), so i just placed order right away.

                  the feature i love the most is the BT. before, i needed to place my laptop next to me and playing the song while i was practicing. now, i just connect my cell to the amp via BT. the song plays directly from from the amp. it really helps alot for my practice!

                  I love the stereo pair setting and cable. I did not like the fact that bluetooth added a long enough delay, it would not be playable. I did not investigate, but the bluetooth transmitter could have been the culprit.

                    Comments about Alesis Practice/Monitor Amp for Electronic Drums:

                    I have been using this since Nov 2016. The audio output is loud and clear and if played inside a room/studio, its very loud even when you keep it at 70% level of volume. Dedicated equaliser knobs at the top of the amp makes it easier to adjust as and while playing it. The bass is very strong and overall the build quality is very good. Bluetooth feature lets you play along with any bluetooth device. The input options are also plenty.
                    Concern - After about 20-30 mins of playing it, the top panel (where the Brand Name Alesis is mentioned), it gets exorbitantly hot and at times I feel it might explode. You cannot even touch it. I am not sure if it was since beginning as I never had touched the area only until very recent when I accidentally did. I am not sure if it actually cuts out and cools down, but I never found an answer to this. Is there anyone facing the same issue? Please have your say.

                          What a great addition to my Alesis drum kit. Nice tone for all drum pieces, especially a thumping bass. Not loud enough for a large gig, unless you turn all the controls up all the way. So I bought a second one. At these prices it was still cheaper than a bigger amp, and I can use them for my bass and acoustic guitar!!

                            Had previously purchased one for our studio drum platform as a monitor for the electronic drums. I was so pleased with the low-end response, I decided to try a pair for stereo subs to go with the Bose 2 pairs of Bose 802's that we have as main control room monitors. With the high & mid rolled off this worked wonderfully and saved us lots of money versus active subs. The space saving was great also. We just put them on the floor under the mixing console and let them kick!
                            TRY IT, YOU'LL LIKE IT.

                                We use these as stage monitors for trio.
                                Use as mains in small venues when Loud is not the objective.
                                We run keyboard, upright and vocals thru small mixer then thru these.
                                My other one is several years old and still going strong and being moved and used several time a week.
