What is the best DM10 model and why?

I'm looking at the various DM10 models on the website, trying to establish what the main differences are, and it's giving me a bit of a headache to be honest.

Listed on the website are;

DM10 Studio kit,
DM10 Studio Mesh Kit,
DM10 X Kit
and finally... the DM10 X Mesh Kit.

So, apart from the 'mesh' models obviously having mesh heads, what are the other differences? For example, what makes the 'studio' models different?

Is there any difference in responsiveness or trigger sensitivity or anything like that?

And in a nut shell, which one is best? People generally seem to think say mesh heads are preferable, so I would assume it's one of those.

I'm looking for a cheap, decent electric kit, and have found the 'DM10 Studio Mesh Kit' for the lowest price. Is this normally at the bottom of the range in terms of price and features etc?

Any advice or information would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Steve.

  • Hello Stephen,

    Thanks for the post and interest! Well the difference really is what's featured with each kit. The module is actually the same for all four kits. Some kits feature mesh pads and a few kits feature more pads than others. The Mesh kits are the newer kits among them all. The Studio Mesh Kit is the Studio kit with mesh pads instead of regular pads. Same situation between the DM10 X Mesh kit and DM10 X kit.

  • The hardware differences are to be noted as well. Structurally, the studio is not really intended to be moved around as much. Still great for what it is.
    Clearly the mesh kits are mesh.
    The same "brain" exists for each.
