The Nitro kit features five drums, three cymbals and boasts what Alesis describes as: ‘incredibly-responsive nextgeneration Alesis mesh heads on all drums for a playing experience that far exceeds anything else in its class’.
Aimed at beginner-to-intermediate drummer looking for a realistic, responsive playing experience in a compact set that’s easy to transport and set up, Alesis goes on to say: ‘Mesh heads are the overwhelming preference of drummers for their natural playing feel and for their ultra-quiet response when not disturbing others is the priority. This kit has an 8″ dual-zone mesh snare drum and (3) 8″ mesh toms. It includes everything drummers need for a complete drum kit: (3) 10″ cymbals, custom-designed Alesis hi-hat pedal and kick pedal, and a durable 4-post aluminum rack. Also included is all the cabling, the power supply and drum key’.
The kit connects to the Nitro electronic drum module, which has hundreds of drum and percussion sounds, 40 drum kits, and 60 built-in play-along tracks. It also features an aux input to connect a smartphone or music player for instant practice and accompaniment.
No UK price was revealed ahead of the launch at Summer NAMM but the US price will be $349.00.
