NAMM 2016: Alesis Strike Pro and Strike Zone Electronic Drum Kits
NAMM 2016: Alesis Strike Pro and Strike Zone Electronic Drum Kits
Introducing the first-ever electronic kits to deliver the very best of both acoustic and electronic drums.

Available in a 5-piece and a 6-piece, the Alesis Strike Zone and Strike Pro are the first-ever electronic kits to deliver the very best of both acoustic and electronic drums, moving beyond the limitations of a conventional acoustic kit.

Strike's premium multi-ply wood shell drums are available in standard acoustic sizes (8''-10''-12''-14'') so you instantly feel at home when you sit behind them.

The new 3-zone Strike 16'' ride cymbal, 14'' crash and 12'' movable hi-hat cymbals provide the perfect blend of feel, control, bounce and volume - they feel spectacularly realistic.

Both kits feature the Strike Performance Module with 200 kits and over 1000 instruments, as well as the ability to assemble your own custom samples and piece together your perfect drum kit.

Players can achieve total control with the unprecedented flexibility and programmability these kits offer, with onboard sampling capability, SD card storage, and USB/MIDI connectivity.

And with the powerful new Strike Software Editor, you can continue to use your favourite music production software to assemble your own custom samples and piece together the perfect drum kit, simply transferring it onto the module via USB.

Enjoy endless creative options and enhanced playability with this unique hybrid kit, brand new for 2016.

''I've been playing electronic drums for over 35 years and there has never been a more powerful, capable electronic drum kit than Strike. Drummers are going to love these, the Strike kits sound, feel, play and look are simply amazing. We firmly believe that Strike marks a turning point for today's drummer and modern percussion just won't be the same from this day forward.'' - Tim Root, Global Percussion Product Manager for Alesis.
