Alesis has added a new high-power amp to its range.

The Strike Amp 8 comes with a more compact form factor than the current Strike Amp 12, while retaining the sonic clarity and punch that drummers demand, according to the company.

The amp pushes out 2,000 watts through a main 8” driver augmented by a special high-frequency compression driver.

There’s a built-in mixer with a contour EQ switch.

Inputs consist of two XLR/TRS ¼” combo inputs with independent volume controls and a clip indicator. The XLR output allows drummers to link another Strike Amp or send their performance to another input device.

There’s no word yet on when Strike Amp 8 will hit stores, but the UK announcement confirms a suggested retail price of £224.99.
