The SR-18 carries the drum machine torch for Alesis directly from its predecessor the SR-16. Alesis have clearly taken the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" attitude with the SR-18, choosing not to change almost any of the features which made the SR-16 the huge success it was over the last 20 or so years.  Instead, they've chosen to add some welcome new features like, the option to use 6 AA batteries for total portability, an LCD backlight, far better core drum sound ROM (let's face it, the SR-16 was a bit, well, 'Eastenders', if you know what we mean), a responsive tap tempo button, greatly improved built in effects, data wheel and an instrument input for all you budding guitarists to jam along with your latest percussion workout.

A fantastically utilitarian bit of kit, the SR-18 manages to combine ease of use and decent sounds to create a very useful tool for creating backing tracks or, simply, adding traditional percussion sounds to your hardware arsenal.
