Very well constructed but I wouldn’t consider it to be too portable. If you’re going to move it make sure you fold it up as tightly as you can.

The Verdict

If your budget is flexible enough, going for an Alesis DM Lite is the best possible way you can start off your guitar learning experience. it features a clever learning-mode which helps beginners learn as they play.

This e-drum is extremely well balanced in all aspects which matter, and it is a strong performer.
