[NAMM] Alesis DM8 USB Kit & DM8 Pro Kit
Alesis announces two new electronic drumsets, the DM8 USB Kit and DM8 Pro Kit, both of which are available now.
The DM8 shares the DM10's essential architecture, including playback of genuine recordings of real drums and cymbals and advanced Dynamic Articulation multi-samples.
Drummers will find the DM8 to be fitted with over 750 studio and live drums and cymbals, dozens of play-along tracks and a metronome for practice and performance. The DM8 features trigger inputs and outputs and MIDI and USB MIDI for flexibility and connection to a range of devices.
The DM8 USB Kit is a five-piece kit featuring a dual-zone snare pad, three tom pads and a kick pad that accommodates single and double pedals. The kit also includes a hi-hat with control pedal, crash with choke and a triple-zone ride. The rubber pads are designed to withstand heavy hitters, yet capture performance dynamics and articulation. The DM8 USB Kit comes with a preassembled, four-post DMRack complete with clamps with large wingscrews and mini-boom cymbal arms.
The DM8 Pro Kit features Alesis' RealHead drum pads – a 12-inch snare, 8, 10 and 12-inch toms and an 8-inch kick pad that accommodates single and double pedals – and DMPad Cymbals – a 12-inch Hi-Hat with RealHat control pedal, 14-inch Crash with choke and a 16-inch triple-zone Ride. The DM8 Pro Kit comes with a StageRack, which features a four-post design, clamps with large wingscrews for tool-less adjustments and boom cymbal arms for flexibility in cymbal positioning.
