Alesis (, the fastest growing brand in electronic percussion, announces availability of Pro X Hi­-Hat, a patented dual­ cymbal hi-­hat controller with true open, half­open, 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.”
