I was always more of a Roland guy. But I bought Alesis Strike Pro because I run into a good offer. And I still regret it. I mean it`s not bad, but Roland at least has a good resale value. Alesis must stay with me for good. I mean the kit is not that bad, but there is a lot of space for upgrading and improving. I have for two years and didn`t really have big issues.
Hi-hat gave me the most of the hard times. Also, the audio input volume appears a bit down to me. Frequently it appears like I need more additional volume out of the audio input. On the flip side, I must say the module is a high point of the kit. Setup will need some work with the module, it`s not as uncomplicated as it`s with Roland. Maybe I`m just biased but I wouldn`t buy it again.
I`m not quite satisfied. The reliability problems are a pain in the ass that impacts everything else. Hi-hat pads also have issues (switch them as sooon as possible). Maybe it`s just my bad luck but I encountered these problems. Drum pads are proper. On the other hand, the brain is a virtue of this kit. Kit samples are surprisingly good, expansion could go up to 64GB, an option of custom sample import. For practicing it will do the job, but I wouldn`t recommend relying on it for some live performances or studio recordings. If you are prone to headaches avoid this kit, cuz it will give you some. Maybe not the best kit for the money you could choose.
