  • assembling pro live/studio e-rig....alternative to Roland...opinions please!!!!

    Currently I have a Dm Pro that I would like to build a studio/live e-drum kit around.....
    Already have two JBL EON G2's for the live rig

    My budget is $1500 for this project (without the module)...please, tell me what you think of my choices!!!!!

    CYMBALS
    Hart ECymbal II...two hats, one chokable crash, and 18" ride w/bell....TOTAL:
    $370
    PEDALS
    Hart EPad and Roland kd-7...TOTAL:
    $330
    RACK AND CLAMPS
    All Gibraltar....TOTAL
    $300 approx
    PADS
    Hart Acusnare, 3 Pintech Concertcast with Mesh Heads.....TOTAL
    $575

    TOTAL KIT....$1575

    I went with the Pintech Pads cause of the lower cost and the fact that to me they just look cooler that then Hart Accupads...don't particularly care for the 80's look..

    What do you think???

      Seriously, I'm looking for folks who have used or are using any of these components
      in order to see if they work ok with the DM pro, how much tweaking is involved, etc...

      I'm happy with my kit if YOU'RE happy with my kit...

        The only suggestion I would make is to consider the Visu-Lite Hats:

        Hart EII Hats $155
        Hart EPedal $199
        Total $354

        Visu-Lite Hats $175.00 comes with controller that attaches to a standard Hi-Hat Stand.

        I make no endorsement of the product, as I don't own it, but if you are looking for bottom dollar...

          When I had my DM-PRO, the Hart products did not require any additional tweaking to dial in. The same amount of tweaking was required to dial in to the TD-8 very small! Additional tweaking really depends on you and what you are looking for from the sounds.

          The Hart products will work very well with the DM-PRO and that is one of the reasons why Alesis picked the Hart products to sell with their drum modules.

          Aside the fact that the Hart products are not that expensive, they are very good for the price and in my mind are better than the more expensive products, from numerous manufacturers.

            Hart sells complete kits without modules. This may be you cheapest option. Hart pads work great with the dm modules, but I don't know about the pintech stuff.


            Good luck

              Thanks all, great replies...as usual....

              To take it to a whole other level and to expand upon what everyone has suggested, I've come up with this ....Am I insane or what???

              Tama Swingstar Acoustic Kit.....$490
              brand new, available from various merchants, includes all the hardware w/o cymbals, includes bass pedal and throne...

              Visulite Hats...................$175
              Hart Crash and Ride ECymbals....$280
              3 Hart AcousticDrum Conversion
              Triggers........................$190
              Hart Acusnare...................$225
              One extra cymbal stand..........$75

              -The Hart triggers will not fit on the
              larger Tama tom, leaving only only one mounted tom and one floor tom, bass and
              snare triggered....
              -The hardware is probably kind of crappy, and maybe even the drums themselves, but who
              cares I'm using them for a converted e-kit..
              (the hardware including the pedals from your average e-kit doesnt look that robust if you ask me)...
              -Leaves me with an extra acoustic snare if I ever need it...
              -I have an extra snarestand here that I've been able to rig up as a stand and holder for the DM PRO module...

              My total is $1390, coming in under budget..

              All in all, I paid $500 for the DM pro on E-Bay for a Grand total...$1890

              Would give me real drum shells triggered, and real cymbal like play and feel with triggers that choke and trigger the bell...
              and a realistic playing and feel hihat with a real high hat stand, bass pedal and throne..

              The $64,000 question is...will it all work??

                Sounds good. Let me know how it works. One more thing to consider is the Pearl rhythm traveler. It is small and comes with mesh and reg. heads, so you could trigger the mesh heads for a quiet set up. Some people on this site use the rt,s with good results.
