Reviews From Buyers
Bought the kit new, and within 2 weeks of playing it I started having triggering issues with the snare. I paid to have the snare sent to Alexis for them to fix/replace under warranty. After 5 weeks I heard nothing back from them. So, I sent an e mail to the person that I was working with. Another week went by...still no response. So, I called and left a message on his voice mail. 4 days later...still no response! So, I sent him another e mail asking him "to please help me, and let me know what's going on. Finally, got an e mail back saying he would get on it right away, and get back to me within the hour. Guess what? Never got back to me! So, I tried calling Alesis again to speak with someone else...got put on hold for over 20 minutes, and decided to just hang up since it was a long distance call. A week and a half later, I get a snare drum in the mail. Opened the package, and it was the wrong one (color & size). Sent another e mail to try and find out why they sent me the wrong snare...no response! Tried calling again, same thing, on hold for over 15 minutes. I'll add this too...After I sent off my snare to Alesis, I figured I would use tom #3 in place of my snare, so I could keep playing the kit. After playing the kit for a week, I started having the same triggering issues with tom #3! So, I'm probably having some sort of issue with the module that's causing whatever my snare chord is plugged into, to short out. Unfortunately, I'm just not able to get Alesis to help me out, even though the kit is still under warranty through them. Absolutely the worst customer service experience I've ever had!!
