Alesis Surge Mesh Special Edition 8-Piece Electronic Drum Kit w/ Mesh Heads
All-In-One Drum Solution for Young People and Beginners
The Surge Mesh Special Edition is an electronic drum kit that provides everything young people need to learn to play drums and get good fast – inspiring sounds, fun and engaging lessons, and a rock-solid kit from a brand trusted by professionals worldwide - Alesis. This eight-piece kit features mesh drum pads for quiet practice at home, a large mesh kick drum pad with pedal, three cymbals, and a hi-hat pedal. The included Surge Drum Module packs hundreds of inspiring classic and modern drum sounds as well as in-demand training features like 60 play-along tracks, a metronome to keep time, and a built-in performance recorder. Holding it all together is a premium drum rack that’s as sturdy as it is portable – capable of taking a beating and then folding up for convenient storage once practice is over.
Quiet Mesh Drum Pads and Premium Cymbals
Experienced drummers know that mesh drumheads are exceptionally quiet and offer the most natural playing experience on an electronic kit. The Surge Mesh Special Edition features large pads with tightly woven mesh drumheads for maximum playability. There’s a 10” snare pad, (3) 8” tom pads, and an 8” mesh kick drum pad that’s built to last. The kick drum pad has a large surface area that plays great with the included kick pedal but also easily fits a double pedal for when it’s time to upgrade. For cymbals there’s a 10” crash and 10” ride that both mute when grabbed and a 10” hi-hat with an expressive foot control pedal.
A Drum Module with Great Sounds and Learning Features
The Surge Drum Module comes complete with 40 classic and modern ready-to-play kits. You can easily tweak any existing kit, or create your own using the 385 inspiring drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds built into the module. 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. There are also learning features like 60 play-along music tracks and a metronome to help build timing and accuracy. There’s also a built-in AUX input so you can plug in a phone or tablet to play along with your favorite songs.
Everything You Need to Start Playing Right Away
The Surge Mesh Special Edition includes everything you need to start playing drums right away – a cable snake, drumsticks, and drum key are all included. There’s also a high-quality single-beater Alesis kick pedal, and an expressive hi-hat control pedal. The drum pads, cymbals, and module all mount to a four-post rack that stands firm no matter how hard you play. You can even fold the rack up for easy storage – perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, playrooms, or any other area where space is limited.
