Product code: DMLITE Manufacturer: Alesis

The Alesis DM Lite is a portable digital drum kit, a fun educational tool, and a useful studio accessory all rolled into one. Despite its entry level price tag, the DM Lite is feature rich and sounds fantastic. It has been very well designed with beginners in mind and is a perfect alternative to an acoustic kit for families with limited space or thin walls!

Included in the box:
  • Kick drum digital pedal
  • 2 x 7.5” rack tom pads
  • 7.5” Floor tom pad
  • 7.5” Snare drum pad
  • 10” Hi-hat cymbal pad
  • Hi-hat digital pedal
  • 10” Crash cymbal pad
  • 10” Ride cymbal pad
  • DM Lite sound module
  • Sturdy metal frame (preassembled)
  • All necessary hardware and attachments
  • Cable snake to connect all pads to the module
  • Power supply
  • 1 x pair of maple drum sticks
  • Assembly guide and user manual
As you might expect from Alesis, the samples in the sound bank are extremely good considering the price. They are arranged into 10 kits and all the individual sounds can be accessed by external MIDI interfaces. Drummers can also plug the DM Lite into a PC via USB (cable not included) to use as a MIDI controller with third party sample libraries. Please note: In order to hear the drums, the DM Lite must be plugged into an amplifier or a set of headphones (not included).

Each drum pad is made from special rubber that bounces just like a skin on an acoustic kit. The triangular cymbal pads are made of a harder plastic and held in place by traditional suspension clamps making them feel just like the real thing. All pads and pedals are touch sensitive, allowing for realistic and expressive performance.

Blue LED lights are built into each drum and cymbal and trigger a flash every time the pad is hit. As well as creating an exciting visual display for the stage, these lights make it easy for students to learn complicated drumming patterns in conjunction with the built-in coaching feature. This mode includes lessons and challenges that use the versatile metronome and a collection of 30 pre-recorded songs. If you’d rather jam along to other backing tracks, there is a 3.5mm minijack auxiliary input for CD players and smartphones etc.
