Since being founded in 1984, Alesis has served the needs of semi-professional and professional musicians seeking high-quality digital audio equipment at budget-conscious prices. Some of the company’s most notable early products are the HR-16 and SR-16 drum machines, ADAT digital recorders, and DM series electronic kits. In late 2017, Alesis released the Strike Pro, which is its most professional-quality drumkit to date. We were sent the six-piece setup, which features 8", 10", 12", and 14" wood-shell/mesh-head tom pads, a 14" snare, a 14" bass drum, 12" hi-hats, three 14" crashes, and a 16" triple-zone ride. A sturdy chrome rack, a double-braced snare stand, and all the necessary cables are also included.
