Alesis has announced their new Strike Amp 8 powered drum amplifier. They tell us that this latest addition to the Strike Amp Series provides a more compact form factor to the existing Strike Amp 12 while retaining the sonic clarity and punch that drummers demand. Here's more details in their own words...
This high-performance electronic drum amplifier has everything a drummer needs to practice alone or perform with others. Don't be fooled by its small size - the 2000-watt Strike Amp 8 will always play loud and clear, in any space or situation. The heavy-duty 8-inch driver delivers kicks and toms you can feel at your core, while the special high-frequency compression driver serves up the brilliance and snap of your cymbals and snare. The built-in mixer means no-hassle hookup of microphones or other electronic instruments, while the XLR output can be sent to another Strike Amp or recording device to capture your performance. The Strike Amp 8 is a versatile practice tool for the modern electronic drummer.
