Alesis Forge Kit Electronic Drum Set (Discontinued)
The Forge Kit appeared on our recommended list for Electronic Drum Sets Under $500 from May 2017 until September 2018.
This is among the most feature-packed sets in the sub $500 price range, and it also includes drum sticks.
It has quite a lot of pre-set kits, user configurable kits, and sounds for the price.
The snare and toms have rubber heads that have a relatively natural response which are all mounted on a 4-post chrome plated aluminum rack which has plenty of strength while remaining relatively light-weight. The kick tower pad is also large enough to use a double kick pedal with it.
It also lets you plug in a USB memory stick which you can use to load samples or record your playing onto.
