Alesis Nitro Mesh drum


This is not the direction I would steer a professional drummer unless they just needed a practice kit, but regardless of your playing level, this electronic drumset has a lot of great qualities, including the MIDI/USB connections that Alesis does very well.

If you live in an apartment or just don’t have a lot of space for your drums, this drum kit packs down easily with it’s collapsible aluminum rack which can be a great feature, especially for those of us that live in small New York City apartments, or any apartment for that matter.


9.1 Expert Score

If you are looking for an affordable electronic drumset that has mesh drum heads, this is a good one to check out.

  • Pretty hard to find a decent mesh head electronic drumset for so cheap.
  • MIDI/USB Connections Allow for easy programming and recording, also easy to upload songs to play along to, if you want to use that feature.
  • There's a good leap in quality between this model and pro models, to be expected with the difference in prices.
