Instant Drums for the Aspiring Musician
The Alesis DM Lite Kit with light-up LED pads will have any novice or accomplished drummer playing—and playing better—right away. All drum and cymbal pads are mounted to the pre-assembled, height-adjustable, 4-post rack, making set-up a snap. In addition to 200 sounds (fully accessible by external MIDI sources), the DM Lite Module contains a built-in drum coach offering play-along patterns and exercises to improve your skills. Through stereo 1/4" outputs, the DM Lite Kit can be easily connected to an amplifier or sound system to share your performance or an 1/8" headphone output is available for private practice. Plus, there is an 1/8" aux input that allows you to jam out to your favorite tunes from an external audio source. The DM Lite Kit can even connect to your computer via USB for integration with popular software recording programs and virtual instruments.
The DM Lite Kit includes a pre-assembled 4-post rack, with four drum pads—one snare and three toms— and three cymbal pads (hi-hat, crash, and ride) all in place.
Simply unfold the arms, position the pads and cymbals, and use the quick-release fittings to set the height to match your size and playing style—no tools required.
The wiring snake connects all of the pads, cymbals, and pedals to the DM Lite module with one single, convenient connection.
Plug in the DM Lite module, grab the included drumsticks, and start playing!
Serious Sound, Professional Performance
The DM Lite module is loaded with 200 quality drum and percussion sounds (fully accessible by external MIDI sources), making up 10 ready-to-play kits that are selected to compliment multiple genres of music. As great as they are, sounds are just the beginning, as inside the DM Lite module you’ll also find a built-in coach feature, 30 play-along music tracks and an onboard click-track (metronome) that add purpose to practice sessions and improve basic and advanced skills. The DM Lite module also provides an 1/8" stereo aux input, so you can listen, learn, and play along with lessons or jam to your favorite tracks stored in your computer, mobile device, or audio player.
Led illuminated Pads + Control on the floor
The DM Lite Kit includes four drum pads and three cymbal pads. When one of them is hit, an internal blue LED lights up, adding a mini light show to any performance. Plus, the pads will also flash in response to the onboard patterns and drum lessons, providing visual reinforcement to every practice session.
Two foot pedals complete the DM Lite Kit kit. The first is a hi-hat open/close momentary control pedal. Second is a velocity-sensitive piezo-controlled kick trigger pedal. Unlike simple on/off kick pedals, this dynamic pedal translates the player’s force into volume, for a realistic kick-drum performance.

I am a critical drummer with a hard to please attitude but this Kit is more than worth the money.
I heartily recommend this kit to anyone who wants to learn the drums or already plays but needs a budget or small kit.
This is perfectly adequate for someone who is very new to drumming and wants to practice on something other than pots and pans but doesn't want to spend any more money than absolutely necessary. It is reasonably easy to assemble. It does what it says on the tin.
I bought this after my first drum lesson because I knew that I was never going to practice if it meant hitting household objects with sticks. I also live in a flat and wouldn't want a proper drum kit for any price. I like this because it enables me to practice without anyone hearing how utterly rubbish I am. I'm all "boom-chicks-boom-chicka" in my headphones and that's all I need.
You do get what you pay for, though. This thing is a bit flimsy. I don't mean that it will break. Only that is's not the sturdiest thing int he world. I have a hard time getting all four legs to the same height so it sort of leans. And some of the pads will move, although tightening them helps. The placement of the pads relative to their positions on an actual drum kit is somewhat approximate. After all, this is just a set of pads clipped to a clothes airer-like rack.
The volume isn't that great - I can hear the actual sound my my sticks or the floor pedals even when I'm wearing the headphones at full volume. But, it is enough that I can hear what I'm doing and it's gratifying.
It would be lovely to have a really nice proper electronic drum kit that was built more like a real drum kit but it's not worth the money for me to do that. And I doubt I'll ever buy real drums because I don't intend to play in public, ever. So, this is a fine entry-level kit and I will probably use it for a long time.
My principal reason for buying an electronic kit was practice and teaching. I have now owned a DM6 for 18 months and can say that in terms of value for money, reliability, sound quality, feel and overall performance it is an exceptional piece of kit.
Electronic experts will find flaws I`m sure but from my perspective I am more than happy. Have used it on live gigs (supplemented with an acoustic snare drum for brush work) and it has performed well and with the right amplification sounds great.
For the money don`t even hesitate. I have played far more expensive electronic kits since and prefer the tonal quality of the DM6 unless you want to pay big money.

Easy to set up, there's a fair amount of noise coming from my 9 year old son's bedroom, but loves it. He's really improved using the coaching setting. Read morePublished 5 hours ago by P.Bennett, Buckinghamshire.
