Finished with an unmistakable crimson trim, these drums debunk any notions that electronic kits can fall short in the visual department. Practise, perform and record in style!
What makes this edition special?
While the original Crimson II drum pads featured black mesh heads, this limited, special edition of the Crimson II series includes all white mesh heads. In contrast with the crimson trims and black cymbals/hardware, this completes a striking visual aesthetic.
Adaptable for every playing scenario
Whether you're practising, performing or recording, the Crimson II is designed to deliver a fantastic drumming experience sure to please even the most meticulous player. The 5-piece pad set consists of two 8" dual-zone tom pads, a 10" dual-zone tom pad, a 12" dual-zone snare pad and an 8" kick pad - each of which feature Alesis' patented, tightly-woven mesh heads. Providing an enhanced playing experience with natural rebound and response, the Alesis Crimson II is perfect for quiet practice sessions, studio recording and live performances.
4-Piece Electronic Cymbal Set
To complement the drum pads, the Alesis Crimson II comes supplied with a 4-piece set of electronic cymbals which comprises a 12" hi-hat, two 12" crash pads (with choke feature) and a 14" triple-zone ride. These cymbals offer the perfect balance of both control and bounce that contributes to the Crimson II's immersive playing experience.
The Crimson II Drum Module
Both the heart and the brain of the Crimson II Kit. The Crimson II module allows you to choose from 74 drum kits (54 factory and 20 user), 671 built-in sounds and 120 tracks. Additionally, the module features an 1/8" input for connecting your smartphone/tablet, a stereo pair of 1/4" outputs, a headphone output and a USB-MIDI output for triggering virtual instrument plugins and recording your performance.
Complete creative freedom
The versatile Crimson II drum module provides even more creative freedom thanks to its integrated USB input that allows you to plug in a USB memory stick. This can be used to load your own .WAV samples which can then be quickly and easily assigned to any zone of any pad. You're in control of the sounds at your disposal.

Even when you've mastered the drumming discipline, you can always learn more! Included with all Alesis electronic drum kits are 40 bonus lessons for the Melodics desktop app - the world's best music tutor for contemporary musicians.
