Comments about Alesis 8-Piece Forge Electronic Drum Set:

Everything you need except for a throne. Since I'm new to the game of drums, other sets I reviewed didn't include a kick pedal. Not only do you get a kick pedal you get a set of drum sticks. They seem to be a nice set, I had some old cheap sticks lying around that are rough, the sticks with the kit are nice and smooth. Not knowing jack about the game of drums, smooth, rough, pretty much the only thing I could tell that was different, maybe a bit lighter. Anyway, I didn't want to sell an arm and a leg for a drum set.. Probably couldn't play very with missing an arm and a leg.. at any rate, I looked at Roland, however the price was a bit higher than I wanted to spend. I didn't pay full price for this set so, I feel I got a great deal. I can bang away and not bother my wife. What are you waiting for? Buy the set, you won't be disappointed.

Great practice kit. Cymbals are not loud enogh.

By

Comments about Alesis 8-Piece Forge Electronic Drum Set:

I got this kit to use for practice, so I don't have to leave my 9 pc Gretsch Birch Kit set up. The Alesis is obviously more pleasing (no noise) to my family and neighbors. Good response and lots of tones. I prefer the "70's Rock" mode. Relatively easy set-up and very portable. Cymbals are not nearly loud enough. I have used my Zildjian A Customs and Ks in studio to remedy this problem. separate cymbal volume would be nice feature. Still a great kit for the money.

    Comments about Alesis 8-Piece Forge Electronic Drum Set:

    Got this for my kids to replace a simmons set. This kit is much higher quality and very sturdy. We were even able to add an additional electronic tom and cymbal to the kit. My complaint would be that the cymbals are not loud enough. Even if we turn them up all the way, it is difficult to hear the ride over the other drums.

    The Alesis Forge kit is an extremely versatile kit. With 50 kits you have so many options at your disposal. Great for apartments because when you are done playing or recording you can just fold it up and tuck it away in your closet without bothering your neighbors.

    8 piece forge

    Comments about Alesis 8-Piece Forge Electronic Drum Set:

    This is a pretty decent kit at its price range. It comes stock with 800 sounds (50 kits and 30 user kits) and unlike most others it comes with actual kick and hi hat pedals vs. some cheesy plastic things. It's not bad and seems durable, sounds great and still keeps people at a decent budget when adding a throne, an EV, headphones, sticks, Service Plan and some lessons!

        This is a great kit to practice with and has great sounding kits within the brain. I like this kit because its not too bulky and can fit in my bedroom. The pads are pretty responsive as well. All around fun kit to play. It is definitely worth the price.
