Introducing the Crimson II Special Edition: a new piece of electronic drum kit innovation from Alesis. Featuring a traditional looking configuration, this set will feel immediately familiar to any drummer - no matter whether you're looking to practice, record or perform live.

Considered Layout

The kit consists of nine pieces; you'll get three toms, a snare, bass drum, ride cymbal, two crashes and a hi-hat. All of this is mounted on a high-quality, 4-post steel rack which features a sturdy, quick-lock architecture. Your drums will remain secure, even during those bouts of powerful and aggressive playing!

Speaking of playing, these drums are great to use. A cutting-edge mesh surface on the snare, toms and bass drum ensure that each is just as responsive as the next, with a natural feel that mirrors that of a traditional acoustic kit. They're extremely quiet too; you won't have to worry about annoying the neighbours during those evening sessions anymore! 

Brimming with Sounds

The Crimson II Drum Module forms the beating heart of the kit. It's packed full of exciting, premium-grade drums, percussion and effects. With 74 drum kits - consisting of 54 preset and 20 user variants - and 671 sounds (with an additional 120 play-along tracks), there's plenty here to help you achieve that perfect drum sound. 

If that's not enough for you, you can even load your own custom WAV samples onto the Crimson's module via a USB memory stick. These can then be assigned to any zone on any of the pads, allowing you to build layered, dynamic and realistic tones.

Further Fun

A suite of additional features help you to work on your skills as well as your creativity. An integrated metronome is present to develop your timing, while a real-time recorder ensures you can capture ideas for any upcoming productions. To add to this, a USB-MIDI output was included so you can trigger any virtual instrument plugins that you like to work with!

Fantastic little kit - clearly not high end but for the price I’ve found it can do absolutely everything I want it to!

For the money I’m very please with the bundle, feels good, some good sounds, and some inspiring sounds. Defaults needed triggers adjusting to feel right and electronic hi hat pedal takes a bit of getting used to.

This is a great entry to mid range electric kit. The module is easy to use has some decent samples and enough there to allow users to create their own unique kit. The response on the heads is very good, not quite as natural as a real kit IMO but close enough to not really matter too much. Had an issue with the kick drum trigger not responding at first but after adjusting the head tension and making some changes to the trigger settings on the module it seems to be working fine now. All in all I'm happy with this and will be perfect for practice sessions.

Mr Glyn Bryan2nd Dec 2020

Bought this to replace an acoustic kit I can't really get away with playing without getting an ASBO. Arrived quickly and well packed. Kit is a great looking thing, set up not too strenuous, mesh heads feel pretty good, built in sounds aren't too bad but with USB connectivity I can make it sound like... well anything I want! Perfect for practice and recording ideas!

Mr Jason Sayers5th Nov 2020

Great budget kit that sounds pretty good with a bit of tweaking. Pads feel great but cymbals are pretty cheap yet responsive. All in all it’s a fantastic kit for tracking via midi for pre production and gives you a kind of accurate feel to a real kit.

Mr Charlie Jenkins9th Oct 2020

Great kit, much better than anticipated. It would be better if the module was upgradeable. The rack also doesn't seem to have enough room for a 'Tom 4', although ill try in the future anyway.
