SURGE MESH KIT

Online

The Surge Mesh Kit is a complete 8-piece electronic drum kit that includes everything a drummer needs to play like a pro. It features a 10" dual-zone mesh snare and three 8" dual-zone mesh tom pads for great feel and natural response, plus an 8" mesh kick tower pad with pedal. Three cymbals provide a virtually unlimited range of playing expression: a ride cymbal, crash cymbal with choke function and hi-hat. Not only do the mesh heads deliver unmatched response and playability, the compact size means the Surge Kit goes where larger kits can't.

Expanded Sounds
The Surge module is filled with sounds - and surprises. The backlit LCD screen makes navigation a breeze. Drum and cymbal buttons are arranged to resemble the layout of a traditional kit, so it's simple to assign sounds and create kits quickly. The Surge module comes complete with 40 classic and modern ready-to-play kits. Easily tweak any existing kit, or create your own using the 385 superior drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds included in the Surge module.

Expanded Features
Inside the Surge module you'll also find valuable extras. The built-in learning features, sixty play-along music tracks, and an onboard metronome allow you to improve your skills. There is even an advanced sequencer and a performance recorder to expand your music-making potential. In addition to the USB MIDI connection for use with computers and mobile devices, the Surge module also offers up some old school MIDI In and Out jacks so you can hook up to your favourite MIDI-equipped drum machine, sound module or other audio gear. There is a headphone jack for private practice, plus stereo outs to connect to a PA system, amplifier, or recording console. The stereo aux input allows you to jam along to your favourite tracks on your CD or MP3 player.

J'ai acheté ma première batterie en mai 2019 après avoir magasiné 4 mois sur le net comparant ce qui existait sur le marché. J'ai essayé en magasin des batteries Roland et Alesis. Mon choix s'est arrêté sur la Surge car le rapport qualité-prix me convenait ne voulant pas trop investir, ne sachant pas si j'aimerais cet instrument à long terme. Et depuis un an et demi, je n'ai jamais regretté mon choix. La qualité des composantes est indéniable. Les trois futs en mesh de 8'' donnent un sentiment très agréable malgré leur petitesse dont on finit par s'habituer. La caisse claire de 10'' performe très bien. Les cymbales (charley, crash et ride) sont bruyantes mais performent bien. Le support chromé donne l'impression d'une batterie haut de gamme. En conclusion complètement satisfait de cette batterie d'entrée de gamme qui me procure de grande satisfaction!

Full mesh with a heavy stand and double beater-able kick for this price is what i wanted and so far so good. I got this to jam online and not piss off the wife with usual noise. I am a heavy hitter experienced drummer. Have hooked up to DAW (Reaper) and programs like EZ Drum etc...all works fine if you want to expand your sounds. Thanks L&M in Charlottetown to get it across the bridge in these lockdown times! Fantastic.

I was surprised by the sound and quality of this kit and the versatility of different kit sounds I can get. The mesh heads and cymbal chokes are a plus. The rack is sturdier than the Nitro rack and more suited to gigging. I use my Ludwig kick pedal instead. The custom sounds are what I use instead of the pre programmed ones. This kit is a great addition to my Ludwigs to give an even better range of sounds. For gigging or recording you don't need to mic anything, you go right into the pa or recorder. So far we're very pleased with the sounds of what we're recording. Gigging set up time is nothing, as well as portability and light weight. For the money they're a real deal, but try them yourself and decide.
