Alesis strike pro for gigging
« on: June 29, 2019, 06:16:12 PM »
Hi All,
I am a gigging drummer and I am looking to buy a strike pro kit. Wondering if anyone has an opinion length of set up time and overall size of this kit. Read some complaints about both, too long to set up and too big. Can anyone share their experiences please
Thanks
Tony :)

I gig with mine.  It's an expanded Strike Pro (see the pic below).  I can go from packed to unpacked and set up in about 30 minutes.  My band always allows 2 hours for setup, so I usually have time to fine-tune placements and make sure everything is triggering properly.

I love gigging with it.  There are several options for bags and cases for pads, hardware and even the module to keep everything in good condition.

The kit is definitely a large e-kit, but we've also played some tight spaces with it.  I kept my DM10 kit, which is much smaller, for really small venues.  I have a 6' x 4' mat that I put under it.  It fits on that mat just fine, so it's never really been a problem for me.

Thanks, Alan!  Yeah, it's pushing it there.  It's about the smallest space we play regularly, and there's a walkway behind me, up to the kit, so it makes it easy to get in and out.  Normally, that corner would be way too small, but they way they have it set up, it works. :)

Thanks and you're welcome!  I really have no regrets with going with the Strike.
