Pearl’s all new ePro Live drums has be shown as of today! Be sure to check out the video of the new drums in action over at the Pearl Drums website. It is interesting to note that Pearl’s new cymbals look to be re-branded Smart Trigger cymbals (Alesis Surge) and the R.E.D. Box module looks to be a re-branded Alesis DM10. For more information regarding the spec of the R.E.D. Box (Alesis DM10) please click here.
To give you a better idea of why I believe the new R.E.D. Box module is a re-branded Alesis DM10, here are a couple of pictures so you can judge for yourself:
Why is this important you may ask? Easy, Pearl seems to have this new website call RedBoxSoundShop.com. This is where you can buy new sound sets for your RED Box module. Alesis said that the DM10 would be able to upload new kits but never (as of yet) released any to upload into the module. It looks as if Pearl already has some ready for purchase. Hopefully, the DM10 will be able to use these new sound sets for the RED Box as well. Here’s hoping!
