Cumberland, RI, USA – August 21, 2014. 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, 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 offer this breakthrough technology to our DM10 and DM8 drummers at a breakthrough price.”
