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. KAT percussion really gives a good bang for your buck as they outperform and outclass everything else within their price range.

The KT1 is KAT’s most affordable electronic drum set. This baby features an 8” snare pad, 3 8” tom pads, and a shock absorbent kick tower with an 8” pad. Cymbal wise you get a 12 ”ride cymbal, 10” chokeable crash cymbal, and a set of 10” hi-hats with control pedal. The rack and mounting hardware come preset for easy assembly and use. The Multi-pin audio snake cable also makes it easy to set up on the fly while the velcro ties give it a neat, clean look.

Now let’s get to the heart and soul of this kit, the module. This thing has over 150 preprogrammed sounds that are all velocity sensitive for a natural dynamic response. The ten programmable kits allow you to create your own musical Frankenstein. With sounds ranging from rock, reggae, jazz, latin, and more; you’ll be able to construct the perfect kit for any style of music. Speaking of music, this module has forty play-along tracks! This is sure to keep you on your toes and help make you a competent player in all sorts of music. After all, Buddy Rich said it best “You either play it all, or don’t play at all”. The module also features a metronome that is capable of nine different time signatures while still having an adaptable tempo. If this doesn’t help build up your internal clock we don’t know what will!

The KKT1US is a very good entry level electronic drum kit, that is perfect for practice settings, at a very affordable price! Good quality drum sounds make this unit a fun kit to play. I am a staff reviewer for Sam Ash Music.

Great kit for your first-time drummer!


This kit is an excellent option for anyone who is just getting into drumming and wants to practice at home without waking the neighbors! With great feeling rubber drum and cymbal pads, this will help you learn like you're playing a professional acoustic kit! The drum module has a great bank of sounds and pre-set kits that are easy to navigate and sound very natural! The KT1 also features a building in metronome for practicing timing, and USB connection for recording your beats and sharing your sessions! I am a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Hollywood

a very affordable electric kit


A very affordable electric kit with over 150 preprogramed sounds for you to choose from. This kit is my #1 selling beginner electro kit aside from the almighty Yamaha. Only thing you would need is a drum throne, bass pedal and head phones and you're ready to jam! I am a sales associate at sam ash music Cerritos, Ca.

Solid Entry Electronic Kit


The KAT K1 Electric kits offer a lot of options and flexibility for the price. The ability to reconfigure your drum set up to better suit your music style, such as creating a 1up 2down tom configuration or converting the kit to left handed is something that the higher end Roland TD-4 cannot offer that makes the K1 a very sensible option for a first time player who is still determining exactly how they like to set up their kit. The price makes it very easy for parents or college students to consider for a quiet practice kit in small homes, dorm rooms or apartments for the serious drummer looking for a quiet practice option. The durability of the hard rubber pads over the Roland Mesh-Style pads give a longevity to the kit that should appeal to the first time drummer as the get their dynamics under control.

Great value for the money


The Kat KT-1 really surprised me with the responsiveness of the pads, and the quality of the drum sounds. I hadn't heard of the brand before and was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to set up and get going. Great value for the money, I would definitely recommend this to someone just getting started or a more experienced player looking for a good deal. I am a staff reviewer for Sam Ash Music

Affordable Quality


My son wanted his own drum kit. Unfortunatley we live in an apartment building with walls thinner than looseleaf paper so I was worried about the noise. So I decided to go with an electronic drumset instead, and after looking at all the pricey units out there (in the thousands) i found this set for a fraction of the cost. Its response and velocity are on point and the sounds are more than decent. Best of all, he can use headphones! Defintily worth the buy! I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music Queens.

shockingly good!


I think this may be the best electirc drumset you can buy in this price range. its great if you cant practice due to noise. for other kist with equivalent features your gonna pay a minimum of 1000 dollars for it. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash Cerritos.
