Alesis DM10X & DM10 MKII Review 2020


Alesis DM10X & DM10 MKII Review 2020


The Alesis DM10X kit was an exceptional studio kit with more than 1,000 sounds to choose from, as well as using Dynamic Articulation–the proprietary technology of Alesis–to give drummers a realistic-sounding kit.

Also, the Alesis DM10X was a very durable drumkit with a chrome rack, so you didn't have to be cautious when playing it, and you could really let go. Also, because of the value-for-money it provided, it was a notable kit. But, sadly, the DM10X was stopped by Alesis.

The DM10 MKII from Alesis is a good option to the DM10X kit from Alesis. It has high-level mesh drumheads that are nearly silent to those around you, but they are also very intuitive and natural to play. The drums are a good size as well.

They're slightly larger than the Alesis DM10 studio kit you've received. Like the DM10X, the DM10 MKII is very robust and enables you to play on your acoustic kit with the same energy as you like.

Alesis DM10 MKII Review 2020


Key Features

Here are the main characteristics of the Alesis DM10 MKII electric drumkit: Tightly Woven Mesh Drumheads: these mesh drumheads are some of the best you will find on an electric drumkit, and they're an enhancement on what you've received on the Alesis DM10X.

It consists of five pads (3x toms, 1x snare, and 1x kick) and four cymbals (1x hi-hat, 2x crash, and 1x run).

54 Preset Drumkits: A enormous selection of incredible sounding kits, which means you'll find something that suits you without fiddling around.

671 Instrument Sounds: This is a stunning instrument selection that gives you full liberty to produce the sound you want.

DM10 MKII Sound Module: This is an Alesis DM10 module enhancement.

Pros +

+ Amazing are the tightly woven mesh drumheads. Even from the lightest hit, they offer you a very nice reaction, and the rebound feels like your acoustic kit. The quality of an electric drumkit relies on the quality of the drumheads and some of the finest mesh drumheads on the market are offered by the Alesis DM10 MKII.

+ Alesis DM10 MKII's nine-piece setup is a enormous plus. Many electric drum kits give not so much option for drummers. And the bigger setup is fantastic. Especially since the pads are quite big, you will be able to strike more surface.

+ The module loads very fast, so there's no waiting around, and it works completely as well. The Alesis DM10X was also known for its incredible Alesis DM10 module, but on this past version the latest Alesis DM10 MK11 module is an enhancement.

+ The four-legged frame makes you play simpler. It provides the kit the same size as an acoustic kit, so keeping your natural arm-movement and rhythm better for you. It would not look out of place on a stage either because of its size, which is not the case with some of the smaller electronic drumkits on the market.

Cons -

The Alesis DM10X was a perfect setup, while the Alesis DM10 MKII has a slight downside that the bass drum can sometimes sound louder than the other instruments.

For whom is it appropriate?

This is a high-level, studio, electric drumkit, appealing to anyone who enjoyed the DM10X mesh kit as well. Your noise is not limited. And the mesh drumheads are really incredible. If you have the money to invest in the Alesis DM10 MKII, then no matter what level of drummer you are, you won't regret the purchase.

Why We Like It : provides an enhancement on the Alesis DM10x, which in itself was an outstanding electrical drumkit. The Alesis DM10 MKII is sturdy, with beautiful large drums, and it also has a enormous selection of preset kits and a broad variety of instrument sounds.

It's also a large kit with a nine-piece setup, meaning you're not limited to the slightest, and you can play as your acoustic kit would. The Alesis DM10 MKII is an outstanding electronic drumkit that will also enjoy supporters of the Alesis DM10X.
