MusikMesse 2009: Alesis release DM6 Electronic Drum Kit

At MusikMesse 2009, Alesis have released details of the DM6 Digital Drum Kit. A descendant of the DM5, the new DM6 is an ideal choice in electronic drum sets for price-conscious drummers and aspiring players. Updates on the current set include a brand new sound module with 108 dum, cymbal and percussion sounds as well as improvements in pad feel and its hardware and rack system.

Just like the previous model, the DM6 Kit features extremely realistic playing pads. The DM6 Kit's natural rubber drum and cymbal surfaces have been carefully developed by Alesis for their low vibration feedback. The Alesis five-piece kit features a dual-zone snare pad for two-sound compatibility. Players can dial in a snare drum sound in the center and a rim click, rimshot or other instrument such as a cowbell on the rim. The DM6 Kit also comes with three tom pads, an upright kick drum pad, hi-hat, crash and ride cymbal pads. Completing the set, the DM6 Kit includes Alesis hi-hat and bass drum pedals and drumsticks.

The brand-new DM6 module features a high-quality internal collection of drum, cymbal and percussion sounds. Drummers can edit and save drum kits for custom sound palettes. In addition to the sounds in the DM6 module, drummers can use the DM6 as a trigger-to-MIDI interface with drum-module software such as BFD, Toontrack or Reason for a limitless collection of sounds.
