Caught in The Act
The Alesis Strike Pro, originally scheduled to be available this fall, was recently missing in action. However, during a recent swing by the headquarters in Cumberland, Rhode Island, we were able to spend a little time hearing the new kit in action. You can expect shipping models by 2017.
Daniel Recchia worked out on the kit. It's a big step up for Alesis in the professionalism, sounds, and quality.

The drum-like appearance is very intentional. They look pretty good on a bandstand.
