Incomparable feel. Incomparable sounds.


Our flagship electronic drumset features the legendary sounds of the DM5 drum module. The rack-mounted, programmable sound module contains 540 percussion sounds and 21 pre-programmed drum/percussion sets and features Dynamic Articulation™, which ensures that sounds respond with natural dynamics and timbre-changes for the most realistic and accurate sonic response.

DM5 Pro Kit's acoustic-feeling drum pads are built around standard eight-inch mylar drum heads and acoustic-dampening foam for quiet response. When they wear out, you can replace the heads with any model you choose from any manufacturer. The heads are tunable with a standard drum key for adjustable tension and feel. The triple-flanged counterhoops are covered in a sound-reducing rubber sleeve, which further cuts acoustic noise.

SURGE Hi-Hat, Crash, and Ride cymbals are the only serious choice in cymbals for triggering electronics. Based around a true brass-alloy cymbal and coated with a clear sound-dampening layer, SURGE cymbals feel like acoustic cymbals because they share the same pedigree.

DM5 Pro Kit with SURGE Cymbals has a unique combination of superb sounds, fresh feel, and terrific touch.
