It delivers professional sound and familiar, comfortable playability thanks to durable, real drum heads.

The flexibility of the DM5 Pro Kit functions insures that it performs equally well for recording or live gigs.

The DM5 Pro Kit features a self-contained, 5-piece electronic drum set including a dual-zone snare, kick, 3 toms, with ride, crash and HiHat cymbal pads.
