This incredibly affordable set features everything you'll need to start playing, including a built in coaching mechanism that will help improve your drumming.

The Alesis DM Lite Electronic Drum Set offers up Alesis quality at an affordable price all drummers are sure to appreciate. The light-up LED pads and built in coaching mechanisms will have any novice or accomplished drummer playing—and playing better—right away. All drum and cymbal pads are mounted to the pre-assembled, height-adjustable, 4-post rack. In addition, this set features 200 pre-programmed sounds and 10 built in sets.  The DM Lite Kit offers a more quite way of practicing through the use of headphones. You can also easily connect it to an amplifier or sound system to share your playing with the world. Plus, there is an 1/8" aux input that allows you to jam out to your favorite tunes from an external audio source. The DM Lite Kit can even connect to your computer via USB for integration with popular software recording programs and virtual instruments.

INSTANT SET-UP
The DM Lite Kit includes a pre-assembled 4-post rack, with all drum and cymbal pads in place. Simply unfold the arms, position the pads and cymbals, and use the quick-release fittings to set the height to match your size and playing style—no tools required. The wiring snake connects all of the pads, cymbals, and pedals to the DM Lite module with one single, convenient connection. Plug in the DM Lite module, grab the included drumsticks, and start playing!

SERIOUS SOUND, PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE
The DM Lite module is loaded with 200 quality drum and percussion sounds (fully accessible by external MIDI sources), making up 10 ready-to-play kits that are selected to compliment multiple genres of music. Sounds are arranged into 10 ready-to-play kits. As great as they are, sounds are just the beginning. Inside the DM Lite module you’ll also find valuable extras. The built-in coach feature, 30 play-along music tracks, and an onboard click-track (metronome) add purpose to practice sessions and improve basic and advanced skills. The DM Lite module also provides an 1/8" stereo aux input, so you can listen, learn, and play along with lessons or jam to your favorite tracks stored in your computer, mobile device, or audio player. For making music with a computer, the DM Lite module benefits from a USB MIDI connection to allow use with popular audio recording software and virtual instruments. A headphone jack for private practice, plus 1/4" stereo outputs connect easily to a PA system, amplifier, or recording interface.

LED ILLUMINATED PADS
The DM Lite Kit includes four drum pads—one snare and three toms. Three cymbal pads are also provided—hi-hat, crash, and ride. When each pad or cymbal is hit, an internal blue LED lights up, adding a mini light show to any performance. Plus, the pads will also flash in response to the onboard patterns and drum lessons, providing visual reinforcement to every practice session.

CONTROL ON THE FLOOR
Two foot pedals complete the DM Lite Kit kit. The first is a hi-hat open/closed momentary control pedal. Second is a velocity-sensitive piezo-controlled kick trigger pedal. Unlike simple on/off kick pedals, this dynamic pedal translates the player’s force into volume, for a realistic kick-drum performance.

      If you're looking for a great beginner electric drum kit, then the Alesis DM Lite is what you need. You get a virtually quiet sound out of the pads, it will hold up for quite some time, and the self teaching method it has built in can really help. Great quality beginner kit!

            The Alesis DM Lite kit is one of the best beginner drum kits. The pads are very quiet, it features a great on-board drum coach, and the kit is small yet sturdy. The 10 built-in drum set sounds are great sound quality.

                    Comments about Alesis DM Lite Electronic Drum Set:

                    The Alesis DM Lite Electronic Drum Set is small and the assembly required is very light. It has 10 drum kit patches and the DMLites' drum brain works as the "master" unit, as it sends "sync" MIDI CLOCK to your DAW. Real convenient, just set up the track on your PC, enable midi clk in sequencer, arm the track, it should prompt for sync signal and press start/ stop button on the DM LITE brain and off you go! Other features are Drum coach, and click. A beginner's dream. Check it out. This is a real hands on review by Rick @ Sam Ash, Phoenix

                            Alesis is no newcomer to the electric kit game. This entry level kit is a great value. It comes with a ton of different sounds to keep the new student engaged, and even comes with a built in learning system. The addition of LED lights on each drum is a cool feature, as they light up with each hit. For anyone looking to start playing drums, but doesn't want to spend a fortune, this is the kit for you.
