Customer Reviews

As this Alesis DM10X Mesh kit drum set provides you with a complete professional experience for drums, then expect a not-so-cheap price tag that comes along with it.

Although rather expensive compared to other drum sets, it is still cheaper compared to other more expensive drum sets with almost the same quality of sound, such as the Rowlands.

Things to Work On

The things that the manufacturer should consider changing or upgrading is the rack space. The rack space for Alesis DM10X Mesh kit drum set is a bit smaller.

Another is the labeling of the sounding tools, such as the second crash’s plug-ins and 4thTom is under percussion. This labeling would make it hard to remember which levels to adjust.

And lastly, a button where you can easily go back to the last track you played or to your favorite track instantly. A concept that has been put on a keyboard where different buttons are provided for different acoustics and multi-level dimensions’ sounds.


The overall verdict for this Alesis DM10X Mesh kit drum set is it’s a good set if you’re looking for a reliable drum to last for years.

The price is reasonable and affordable compared to other drum set with an equal sound quality as this one.
