Alesis Turbo Mesh Kit
I've always wanted to play drums, but I didn't expect to live like this. When it comes to electronic drums, famous brands seem to be Roland and Yamaha. Both are Japanese brands aside... these two brands are famous but definitely expensive. I didn't have enough money, and my studio wasn't that big, so the number of electronic drums I could play at home was rather limited. He said that the sound itself of the electronic drum can be heard through the headset, but the vibrations on the floor are the same...
Anyway, for that reason, I searched secondhand countries and bought a rather low-priced product. It's probably the cheapest friend sold by a brand called Alesis. Alesis Turbo Mesh Kitis.
As a low-cost electronic drum, the overall configuration is rather simple. However, as it is a cost-effective model, it has a mesh, so it gives a feeling of being a little bit more. FYI, Roland's cheapest friend has no mesh, just plastic... Of course, Roland's product was also originally a concept to simply enjoy at home for educational purposes, so I think it came out extremely simple.
It doesn't seem to take up much space even after it's all assembled. I'm in a studio, so when I'm not playing, I have to fold it and carry it around (I didn't know it could be folded and stored until I saw the official video...), but even if it's a normal house, I think it'll be fine if I just put it in the corner of the room. Of course, assembling is also quite easy, so you can easily do it by looking at the manual.
It was a bit confusing at first, but after the second assembly it was pretty easy to assemble. I like this quite a bit. It takes a really long time to tighten the screws for the actual drum, but is it because this friend is a low-cost type or if the electronic drum is not expensive, it is usually simple (the high-priced electronic drum looks like an acoustic?) It was good to be
In terms of performance, I'm actually playing the drums for the first time, so there's not much I can say about it... However, the drums are basically drums, but I didn't feel that way. It's a mesh, so it wasn't the level of hitting plastic at all, but it's still not a drum... It's a pity. Is it a limitation of the low-end model... Well, I guess I should be grateful that I can play these drums at home.
There are about 10 different sounds supported by the drum, but personally I don't feel much difference. Still, it supports basic MIDI functions, so if you have a lot of instruments in your computer, you can use it as a kind of MIDI controller. Well, if it's an electronic instrument, it should have this kind of function.
There is one more disappointment. It is very good that it can be folded like the picture above, but the size is a bit vague; In my living room, folding and storing is a waste of space... So every time I play, I disassemble and reassemble it... When I timed it, it took 15 minutes... I had to go to a charter quickly and fold, unfold, and manage it to play properly. I think I can... tears...
