The Alesis Crimson II Mesh Electronic Drum Kit is the latest entry into the brand's current electronic drum line-up.

The Alesis Crimson II Kit is comprised of nine separate components, each embodying the premium feel and expression for which Alesis have become so renowned. Included in the 9 piece kit configuration are 4 cymbals; 1 DMPad 12" hi-hat, two DMPad 12" crash cymbals (with choke) and a DMPad 14" triple-zone ride. Manufactured to emulate the exact feel and response of traditional cymbals, the Crimson II's cymbals each feature the precise of the control and bounce apparent in acoustic models.

Designed to endure the rigours of everyday use, the Alesis Crimson II kit's robust premium hardware allows you to truly immerse yourself in your playing without the worry of damaging or otherwise compromising your kit.

Featuring the included Crimson II Drum Module, you can choose between 74 drum kits (54 of which are the predefined and 20 user). With over 671 sounds built-in to the device and 121 play along tracks, the luxury of choice is awarded directly to the player.

For drummers that want to perfect their chops, the Alesis Crimson II Drum Module features a built-in metronome, recording function and 1/8 inch input so that you can play along with your mobile device. The module also features a stereo pair of 1/4-inch outputs, headphone output and a USB-MIDI output so that you can directly trigger your favourite virtual instrument plugins.

Not only does the Crimson II cater to those looking to hone their skills, it can also act as an intuitive creative tool that allows the user to input and load your own samples and sounds. Once the samples are uploaded, you can easily assign them to any zone of the pad on the Crimson Mesh Kit, making the potential creative possibilities virtually endless.

A kit that lends itself well to mid-to advanced-level drummers looking to reciprocate the feel of the traditional acoustic drum-kit, the Alesis Crimson II kit's versatile nature makes it well-suited to the needs of the working/travelling musician.
