Question about Alesis DM6 Electronic Drum Set
Compared to the other pads, the volume on the kick pad is very low. i adjusted the module volume but compared to the other pads, the kick is really low and so doesn't provide the right bass sound
MAKE SURE WHEN YOU ADJUST THE VOLUME YOU PRESS
SAVE , GO BACK IN A CHECK VOLUME LEVEL TO A MAX OF 16

Some of the Alesis products have a setup and data memory backed up by a battery. It is POSSIBLE that your battery expired and took the sound memory with it.
Investigate if you have a battery in yours (buried in the guts) and check the voltage. It should be above about 3 volts.
If it is below that, replace the battery and find another unit to clone the data from.

Intermittents are hard to find the cause of... but let's give it a shot...
Things to try or verify:
1, Verify power connector is fully seated and supply is correct one and is producing the desired voltage..
2. Verify that the amp this connects to is powered by the same wall receptacle. (this is a ground loop noise issue) Also don't let mic's or other electrical equipment touch the drum pad mounting system.
3. Verify you are not inadvertently generating static discharges. If you find yourself drawing sparks when you touch things this is an indication of static. if this is a problem, raise humidity to 40%.
4. If unit is subject to heat, try cooling with a fan to see if it helps the situation.
5. Verify the unit is NOT being vibrated.
6. IF THE UNIT is quite old, verify an internal backup battery is not depleted... they usually are about 3 volts when OK.

First thing to look at is the plug you are using a TRS, that is has three connections for the SNARE drum. If you partially put a TRS cable into the jack, the Tip will touch the Ring contact instead of the Tip contact. Now notice that the SNARE has a TRS plug while the kick has only a TS.plug. Could these be mis-labeled? The SNARE is the TRS and the kick is only a two conductor. If these are correct in your unit, then the jack in the kick drum itself must be broken and further that type of failure is really hard to visualize as it would require the tip contact of the jack to be drastically bent so that the plug has to be partially out to work.
So... first verify that the KICK cable has a two wire plug that is DIFFERENT from the three wire plug used on the SNARE (the snare has two pickups, one each for the head and rimshot) Should they possibly either mis-marked the cable plugs OR put the wrong plug on the Kick cable this would be the problem.
