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.
As I have mentioned elsewhere, Alesis uses the DM10 label for several of their electronic drum sets. The DM10 Studio Kit and DM10 Studio Mesh Kit are large, 6-piece drum sets that are at the top of the Alesis electronic line.
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.
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.
The ddrum signature red and black styling is impossible to miss in both their DD Beta drum set and their DD Beta XP kit. Let’s take a look at what’s behind, inside, and under the flashy coloring by comparing the DD Beta and the DD Beta XP.
