The Look and Feel of an Acoustic Drum Kit
The original Alesis Strike drums were revolutionary, featuring an all-new drum and cymbal design.
The new Strike Pro Special Edition builds on that legacy, most notably with its full-sized 20-inch kick drum. It looks and feels like an acoustic drum, and when you sit behind the Strike Pro Special Edition - with its full size kick - the playing and visual feel is fundamentally identical to an acoustic set.
You’ll feel at ease right away - no having to “get used to it.”
The Strike Pro Special Edition’s kick is solid and sturdy, with no wobble. It responds and feels like an acoustic bass drum. It’s simply ground-breaking.
All-New Mesh Heads
However, there is far more that makes the Strike Pro Special Edition an extraordinary playing experience than just the full-sized kick.
To begin with, the Strike Pro SE utilises all new latest generation mesh heads, with both snare and all toms being dual zone. Their response is faster, more natural and easier to play than ever before.
You will fly over these heads, effortlessly laying down powerful grooves and snapping off crisp fills.
The Strike Pro SE’s patented enhanced articulation system and latest-generation tunable mesh heads provide incredible responsiveness for picking up subtle ghost notes and accents.
These heads won’t fight you - instead, these new Alesis mesh heads are your best ally.
Superior Cymbal Performance
Strikingly realistic, the Strike Pro SE’s cymbal-set includes a 3-zone ride with edge, bow, and bell sounds, three crashes with choke and a life-like high-hat that you can groove and bounce.
The Strike Pro Special Edition's 16” ride cymbal, 14” crash and 14” movable hi-hat feel spectacularly realistic - they are covered with a new thick comfortable rubber that creates the perfect blend of feel, control, bounce and volume.
The cymbals offer a large bell area for enhanced playability, along with a cool “hammered” look. Plus, these cymbals are much quieter than traditional e-cymbals, perfect for your late-night practice sessions when volume needs to be minimised.
The new hi-hat in particular sets a new e-standard for fast response, solidity and its amazing ability to convey a deft, subtle touch.
Strike Performance Drum Module
The Strike Pro Module is by far the most versatile and capable module that Alesis has ever offered.
A large measure of the amazing playability and character of this kit is due to the expansive sound library, with over 136 custom kits made from over 1800 instruments and 45,000 samples!
The module has on-board sampling capability, 16 GB external card storage, and USB/MIDI connectivity, which you can use in conjunction with your favourite music production software as well as the powerful Strike Software Editor.
With this editor players can assemble their own custom samples into multiple velocity layer and round-robin instruments, piece together the perfect drum kit, and then transfer it onto the module via USB.
Every feature and control is incredibly easy to keep track of, thanks to the Strike Pro Module’s 4.3-inch colour LED screen, which displays all the player’s settings and choices at a quick glance.
It all adds up to unprecedented flexibility and programmability, combined with total mastery of the kit’s status.
