Alesis DM6 Nitro Review

I intended this article to be a review of the Alesis DM6 Nitro kit. However, during my research, I discovered that Alesis also has a kit called the DM6 USB (which was formerly called the DM6 kit) and a kit called simply the Nitro.

This confusing set of names begged for a comparison of the three sets, so that’s really what this article will be – a look at the DM6 Nitro, the DM6 USB, and the Nitro.

We’ll see by the end of the article which one is the most recommended. Continue reading “Alesis DM6 Nitro Review”

Let’s take a look at these two similar sets to see which one would suit you best. Continue reading “Alesis DM10 Studio (Mesh) Review”

Alesis DM10 X and DM10 X Mesh Kit Review

Alesis makes some nice electronic drum kits. Those in the DM10 line are some of the most popular. The only hitch is that they include the label “DM10” in so many of their model names that it can be confusing knowing which one you’re looking at. In this article, I’ll review two of them together – the DM10 X and DM10 X Mesh kits.

I might as well tell you up front (because you’ve probably already guessed it anyway) that the main difference between these two sets is that the one has mesh drums and the other doesn’t. Continue reading “Alesis DM10 X and DM10 X Mesh Kit Review”

Alesis Command Kit vs Forge Kit Review

There are three Alesis electronic drum kits that use basically the same “brain”. These are the Crimson, the Command, and the Forge kits.

Alesis Crimson Mesh Review

If all you wanted was a cool looking electronic drum set, then the Alesis Crimson kit (aka Alesis Crimson Mesh kit) would probably fit the bill. Just the name “Crimson” tells you a lot about what this set looks like.

But looks aren’t everything, as they say. So let me take you through the features and specs in this Crimson Mesh review. By the end of the article, you should be able to tell if this kit will do what you want it to or not. Continue reading “Alesis Crimson Mesh Review”

ddrum DD Beta D Lite Drum Set Review

You’ve probably heard this question: What’s in a name? When it comes to this drum manufacturer, this is my question: What is the name? Is it ddrum or ddrums? And why no capital letter?

Okay, it’s for style. I get that. But then let’s have some consistency. Even the ddrum DD Beta D Lite drum set is formatted differently in different places – including on the manufacturer’s own website.

Now I know that this is nit picky stuff that doesn’t really matter, but it’s still a little annoying. Pick a name and stick to it so others (like me) know what to call you and your products.

So, all that said, let’s take a look at a cute, little drum kit called (I think) the DD Beta D Lite. There’s a pun there. Did you get it? D Lite = Delight.
