ALESIS PRO X HI-HAT NOW AVAILABLE

Thu, August 21, 2014


Cumberland, RI, USA – August 21, 2014. Alesis (alesis.com), the fastest growing brand in electronic percussion, announces availability of Pro X Hi-Hat, a patented dual-cymbal hi-hat controller with true open, half-open, closed, “chick”, and splash triggering capability.

Designed to offer authentic hi-hat playability and unprecedented trigger response with Alesis’ groundbreaking DM10, DM8, and DM Dock, Pro X Hi-Hat mimics the movement, placement and feel of an acoustic hi-hat with the flexibility of an electronic drum pad. Compatible with acoustic hi-hat stands, the Pro X Hi-Hat’s design makes it the first electronic drum pad to realistically emulate the feel of a dual-cymbal system. Based on the type of contact made with Pro X Hi-Hat, the drummer will experience the same level of controlled variation an acoustic hi-hat offers.

“Pro X Hi-Hat gives electronic drummers the authentic hi-hat experience they have been missing,” says Product Manager Craig Reeves. “We are proud to be first-to-market in offering this breakthrough technology to our DM10 and DM8 drummers at a breakthrough price.”

Highlights:

  • 12” single-zone top and bottom cymbals
  • Natural hi-hat playability and feel
  • Create open, half-open, closed, "chick," and splash sounds
  • Compatible with standard hi-hat stands
  • Includes top cymbal, bottom cymbal, clutch, cables, and position sensor
  • Integrates seamlessly with Alesis DM10, DM8 and DM Dock

Pro X Hi-Hat is available from authorized Alesis dealers with a street price of $99.99.
