Things to Work On

For most Alesis drum set, one thing that customers always find lacking is the rack space. Although Alesis has a reasonable size rack space, it is better if they are going to build a bigger rack space for the drummer for a roomier look design.

Another thing to work on is a button that can easily remember the last action you’ve performed. Like an easy-access button that can provide you with all the sample music you recently used or mostly used. It would be like a button for a list of all the favorite things you do on your DM10 studio kit drum set.


Although the Alesis DM10 Studio kit set doesn’t have much difference with its former and other DM10 series, one notable change that this has compared to other is the Mylar pads and the DM pad cymbals that make this an excellent accessory for all drummers out there.

Overall, the Alesis DM10 Studio kit, once again, never fails to impress us and a highly-recommended drum set for aspiring drummers and musicians.
