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.
If you are already set on getting one of these two ddrum drum kits, you can click either of the links below to check the pricing and availability at Amazon.

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.
The PylePro PED021M electronic drum set is currently the top of the line from Pyle. For a company originally known for their speakers and now for many non-musical products as well, this electronic drum kit isn’t bad.
