The Alesis Forge Kit is a full-blown 8-piece electronic drum kit that is changing the game for electronic drums. It features three dynamic tom pads, an 11" dual-zone snare drum pad, a kick drum pad, three 10” cymbal pads, and all the hardware you need to get behind the kit, including a bass drum and hi-hat pedal. The premium rubber pads are designed to give the drummer maximum response and feel while playing - the rebound feels like you’re hitting a real drumhead, ones that are larger than the 8” pads of its predecessor, the Nitro Kit. For instance, the snare has great dynamic response and dual-triggered zones, which enable it to pick up the detailed intricacies of your playing. The three cymbal pads are also interactive, allowing the crash cymbal to be choked, and hi-hats splashed by foot. The overall sound quality of the Forge Kit is incredibly realistic, and produces amazing recreations of acoustic drums.
The Alesis Forge Kit includes the Forge electronic drum module. As the brains of the kit, the module includes 600 different sounds, 70 different drum kits (50 factory and 20 user kits), and 60 play-along tracks, all editable and customizable to your specifications.
A Huge Collection of Sounds
The Alesis Forge module is loaded with sounds and features. The LCD screen allows for easy navigation through kits and settings, while the drum and cymbal buttons are laid out like a traditional kit, making pad assignments quick and efficient. 50 classic and modern drum kits are pre-programmed into the Forge module. All are editable and can be easily tweaked to create your own unique drum kits and sounds. With 600 drum and cymbal sounds, the possibilities are endless for customization on the Alesis Forge Kit.
The Alesis Forge Electronic Drum Kit was designed to be a handy practice tool for drummers of all skill levels. Sixty play-along backing tracks allow you to jam with the band and hone your skills, while the built-in metronome is the holy grail for effective drum practice. The module even has a performance recorder allowing you to make and record your own tracks on the fly; up to 99 tracks on the USB stick. The Forge Kit also makes MIDI connection quick and simple with its USB connection, or classic MIDI In and Outs so you can connect all your outboard MIDI gear. For quiet practice, plug right into the headphone jack, or rock the house using the stereo out to amplify the drums through a PA system, amp or recording device. With the USB stick, you can import your own sounds and tracks via WAV file to the Forge, and assign them to individual pads.
The Alesis Forge Eight-Piece Electronic Drum Kit is leading the way in innovative and affordable technology, designed with the player and their wallet in mind.
