Alesis introduces DM8 USB Kit and DM8 Pro Kit electronic drumsets

Alesis has introduced the DM8 USB Kit and DM8 Pro Kit, two new electronic drumsets.

Alesis’ latest drum module in a line now spanning 20 years, the DM8 builds on the success of the top-of-the-line DM10. The DM8 shares the DM10’s essential architecture, including playback of genuine recordings of real drums and cymbals and advanced Dynamic Articulation™ multi-samples.

Drummers will find the DM8 to be packed with over 750 first-call studio and live drums and cymbals, dozens of play-along tracks and an advanced metronome for practice and performance. The DM8 features professional audio and trigger inputs and outputs and MIDI and USB MIDI for expansive flexibility and connection to a wide range of devices.
