While we'd all like to have our own soundproof room with enough space for a full kit most of us have to make do with a corner of the room. Without electric drum kits home rehearsal would be a big problem.
Alesis have a great reputation for electric kits and the new Nitro Kit is a responsive, well designed setup at entry-level prices that makes a great alternative to acoustic drums at home or on stage. Whether you're just starting out or just need a quiet way to practice at home this kit is a great option.

Here's what Alesis have to say
The Alesis Nitro is a complete 8-piece electronic drum kit that includes everything you need to play like a pro. It features three dynamic 8" tom pads—a 8" dual-zone snare drum for great feel and natural response, plus a kick drum pad with pedal. Three 10" cymbals, including a crash with choke, give you a virtually unlimited range of playing expression and the 4-post aluminium mounting rack keeps everything solid and secure.
