Alesis has announced the DM6 electronic drum set at Musikmesse.


The set features a new sound module with 108 quality drum, cymbal and percussion sounds. The DM6 Kit's pads feel natural and its hardware and rack system are high quality, according to Alesis.

The five-piece kit features a dual-zone snare pad for two-sound compatibility. Players can dial in a snare drum sound in the center and a rim click, rimshot or other instrument such as a cowbell on the rim. The DM6 Kit also comes with three tom pads, an upright kick drum pad, hi-hat, crash and ride cymbal pads. Completing the set, the DM6 Kit includes Alesis hi-hat and bass drum pedals and drumsticks.

Drummers can edit and save drum kits for custom sound palettes. In addition to the sounds in the DM6 module, drummers can use the DM6 as a trigger-to-MIDI interface with drum-module software such as BFD, Toontrack or Reason for a collection of sounds.

Drummers can play quietly with headphones or connect the DM6 Kit to an amplifier or PA system for full-volume performance. They can also connect an iPod or CD player and mix it in with the DM6's stereo input jack. The DM6 contains a metronome and sequencer with music tracks for playing along. The DM6 Kit comes with a heavy-duty aluminum rack. The kit also comes with a full set of mounting hardware and cables. The DM6 Kit is fully compatible with Alesis SURGE Cymbals and acoustic-feel drum pads for upgrades.
