The Alesis DM6 USB Kit brings the best of Alesis’ 20 years of experience in professional electronic-percussion gear to the aspiring musician in need of a versatile drum set.

The DM6 module features an internal collection with 108 quality drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds. You can edit and save your drum kits for custom sounds using 10 presets and 5 custom slots. The USB output sends the notes you play out as MIDI signal, so you 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.

You can also connect your smart device or CD player through the DM6’s stereo input jack to play along to your favorite songs.

Like all Alesis drum sets, the DM6 USB Kit features realistic, natural-feeling playing surfaces. To reduce vibration feedback, we selected natural rubber drum and cymbal surfaces for the DM6 Kit’s pads.

This five-piece kit gets you started on a dual-zone snare pad for two-sound compatibility. The DM6 USB Kit also comes with three tom pads, an upright kick-drum pad, and hi-hat, crash, and ride cymbal pads. It even comes with an Alesis bass drum pedal and the kick pad is compatible with any single or double bass drum pedal for your personal feel.
