New Electronic Drum Set, the Alesis Nitro Mesh Kit

At the end of June Alesis has launched a new electronic drum set, the Nitro Mesh Kit. It is an 8-piece kit (5 drums, 3 cymbals). It features the next-generation Alesis mesh heads on all drums. This item has been on sale for only two month, but has already become one of the best sellers in electronic drum sets category on Amazon.

Main features of the Nitro Mesh kit

The Nitro Mesh Kit is a complete 8-piece electronic drum kit. It comes with an 8" dual-zone mesh snare drum, three 8" mesh toms, three 10" cymbals, a custom-designed Alesis hi-hat and kick pedals. A durable 4-post aluminum rack is also included, just as all the cabling, the power supply, drum sticks and drum key.

Unlike previous drum set Nitro kit by Alesis, the new Nitro Mesh Kit comes with new mesh heads for the snare and toms.  Drummers prefer mesh heads to cheaper rubber heads because of their natural playing feel and for their ultra-quiet response when not disturbing others is the priority. The mesh heads are also tunable, so you can customize the drums rebound and sensitivity. The kick pads are made of rubber.

A core sound-set ready for any genre

Alesis Nitro Mesh Kit features 40 ready-to-play classic and modern kits, with 385 drum and cymbal sounds. It also features 60 built-in play-along tracks, sequencer, metronome, performance recorder and CD/MP3 aux input to play along with your own songs.

It also features 1/8-inch headphone input, stereo ¼-inch TRS inputs and an 1/8-inch aux input. All this enable hassle-free rehearsals and simple practice and recording sessions.

With Nitro Mesh’s USB-MIDI and MIDI In/Out ports you can transmit MIDI information directly to a computer. You can also unite your synthesizers, drum machines and more for expanded performance potential.


The Alesis Nitro Mesh Electronic Drum Set, ideal for any beginner-to-intermediate drummer, is designed primarily for home practicing. The set is compact, easy to transport and set up. In spite of the fact, the Nitro Mesh kit belongs to the budget class of electronic drum kits, it delivers a most realistic playing experience, that modern drummers demand.
