    Suggestion for a beginner electronic drum and for a drum game

    Can connect anything with MIDI to a "game". Seek out DTXmania for a game example (not specific to the DTX) If you want to actually learn, look at (again, can be made to work with most things) And the eternal "what kit"? Question.... well here's my...

    Yamaha Hi Hat Controller, Logic X and Axiom Midi Keyboard | Will this work or no?

    You have Yamaha hat controller already ? (which one - bit confusing above, you say "sticks with a Yamaha pedal" ;) ?) - you can get a Yamaha module for not a lot on eBay if you're being "cost conscious" :) (dunno your budget or location)

    Can you swap kick pads?

    Usual: Anything from anyone. All just £0.50 piezos in a shell. (pretty much anything will "handle" a double kick) Or - as it's an ekit - it just as simple and can be more flexible and cheaper to get another pad and another single pedal.

    Alesis or Roland?

    Hello "Alesis or Roland" Those are two of the possible options. There are many, many more. Yamaha, ATV, 2Box, Pearl etc. You haven't given use much to go on (bit like asking "Toyota or Ford: I need one for driving") here's the "what kit" post: Few questions: Budget? What have you...

    Wrist pain from electronic drums?

    Get maple sticks. If you're using hickory or even oak they don't flex as well, so transmit vibes. Flex: maple > hickory > oak And use as thin as is comfy for your finger length / hand size. You don't need specialist expensive sticks. Cheap maples are fine. (I get brick of pairs for £20...

    When slaving modules, can you technically have two hihats and two ride cymals because the inputs are there?

    If you like. Or just use Y-Cables and "short" two pads together into a single input (like connecting two lightbulbs to a switch or vice-versa)

    Can you slave a Roland TD 17 Module to the Alesis Strike? Will it work with drum software?

    TD17 -->MIDI--> Strike? Strike has MIDI in, so yes. "Will it work with drum software"? Assume you mean a software instrument, if so, then no reason why not as long as the Strike's MIDI THRU is on. TD17--> MIDI --> Strike --> MIDI --> PC --> Software

    Reinforcing (taping) sensors on Alesis mesh electronic drum heads? Anyone done this?

    Big dollop of hot glue. Problem is mainly the cables coming away from the piezos - but also with Alesis the support structures also break and the foam denatures. Play lighter and use maple sticks ;)

    Intermediate $700-$800 Range Recommendation

    Which $ ? US / CAD / AUD etc What have you played (apart from the Alesis?) What "samples" do you want to load? Cowbell? Three minute backing loop? Nope. Indeed many don't come with a single bass pedal. - it's an ekit - use two single pedals and two pads if you like. More flexible. As a...

    Are Alesis cymbals interchangeable with other Alesis kits?

    "Are Alesis cymbals interchangeable with other Alesis kits?" Yes - but depends on the module, input and cymbal as to what features you'll get (multiple zones, choke etc) ask over here for specifics:
