Roland HD1 vs. Alesis DM6 Review
My name is Tom and I'm 14. I am on work experience at AC Hamiltons, I have been playing drums for 6 years and I have been asked to write a review comparing two beginner electronic kits: the Alesis DM6 and the Roland HD1.
These kits make for excellent starter kits. If you're running on a low budget and don't want to spend all that much, but still want something that won't fall to bits, the Alesis DM6 and the Roland HD1 both make for good quality, value electronic drum kits.
For starters, the advantage that thesee kits have over the acoustic kits is the volume. Many parents buy acoustic kits for their children starting drums and regret it soon after due the level of noise coming with acoustic drum kits. With electronic kits, however, the volume can be changed and means that the parent doesn't have to bear with the high volume level of the acoustic kits. If the volume seems too high on the electronic, the volume can be turned down or the child can even use headphones.
First of all, these two kits differ quite a bit. For starters, the build and sound quality of the Roland HD1 of the HD1 gives the kit an advantage over the DM6. The HD1 has crystal-clear sound and proves to be very well built for its price and size. Although the sound quality isn't as good as on the HD1, the DM6 has a greater variety of sounds than on the HD1. Whilst the HD1 has 5 kit sounds with variations on the kits (some of the variations being very similar, some being completely different), the DM6 has 15 unique kits with a generally more features, such as a sequencer and a recorder.
Another strong point of the HD1 is its simplicity. The kit comes practically in one piece and proves very easy to assemble and work. the module comes across as very accessable, just showing the kits, a knob for the volume and a knob for the tempo. this simplicity comes in very useful for starter drummers. On the other hand, the Alesis has more to offer, just with a little bit less quality. The HD1 is very much a case of quality over quantity.
One positive point of the HD1 is how fun it is to play. The sound quality combined with the size and brilliant build quality makes it an incredibly fun kit to play, especially on the electronic kit. The size and build of HD1 make for it to be incredibly well suited to children and just beginners in general.
Although the DM6 is generally more varied and is modeled more around an acoustic drum kit than the HD1 (which many people setting to play drums would want), the HD1 is overall better built and better sounding than the DM6. I'd personally go with the HD1
