Kat Purcussion KT-2 High Performance 5-Piece Digital Drum Set
The Kat KT2 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set is ideal for anyone looking to pick up a quality drum set that’s good for more than just practicing in low-noise environments. KAT Percussion started in 2012 when KMC Music teamed up with electronic drum designer Mario DeCiutiis. DeCiutiis’ nearly thirty years in the business have helped him create an electronic drum pad with an outstanding sound and feel.
The KT2 is a step up from Kat’s introductory kit the KT1. This set features a 9” dual-zone snare pad, three 9” dual-zone tom pads, and a shock absorbent kick tower that also features a 9” pad. Cymbal wise you get a 14”ride cymbal, a 12” chokeable crash cymbal, and a set of 10” hi-hats with control pedal. The rack and mounting hardware come preassembled for easy use. The Multi-pin audio snake cable also makes this kit easy to set up on the fly, while the velcro ties give it a clean look.
Let’s talk about the module for a minute. This upgraded USB module features over 500 studio-grade samples. All of these sounds are velocity sensitive which will give you a natural feel and response that is just as dynamic as your playing. With 30 pre-set kits and 15 user programmable sets, this module will give you all of the options and versatility of a larger collection without the overwhelming debt that usually comes along with it. The module also features individual pad controls such as volume, reverb, pan, pitch, and eq. This will allow you to dial in your sound like never before. It also features 80 play-along tracks with recording ability. Not only is this a fun way to pass the time but it will allow you to listen back to your performance to hear what sounds good and what doesn’t. It also features an 1/8th inch input which allows you to hook up your iPod or CD-player, and play along to your favorite songs. This module also features a fully adjustable metronome. Playing along to a click track is a great way to improve your sense of time and will make you a pro at laying down drum tracks in the studio. Speaking of the studio, this kit also features 2 quarter-inch output jacks so you can plug into a PA system or mixing console, making it easy to record and play live. This kit is also expandable up to two extra pads.
So, what are you waiting for? It’s never been easier to get the electronic drum set of your dreams at a great price.
