Product Description

The 6-piece kt3 digital drum set represents KAT's advancement in its "kt" drum series. This "big brother" edition of the widely acclaimed kt2 features large 11" white floor tom and snare drum pads, a larger 12" hi-hat cymbal, two 12" crash cymbals, a 14" ride cymbal with a bell trigger and most importantly, a library of amazing, high quality sounds.

The built-in general MIDI sound card includes a variety of play-along songs that are both fun and challenging to play. The sophisticated kt3 sound module includes 45 pre-configured drum sets, 25 user-programmable drum sets, 100 built-in play along songs, and 550 studio-quality drum, cymbal, DJ, EFX, and percussion sounds.

The kt3 module has as much connectivity as you have come to expect from a KAT kit. A pair of 1/4" stereo output jacks accommodate direct recording and mixer amplification. A stereo input jack allows you to plug in your mp3 player so you can play-along and practice to your favorite tunes.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "KAT KT3 Drum Kit … Fantastic Kit for All Levels ..."
Overall: Some people love to say that a drum machine doesn't have a soul. Please insert that Batman slapping Robin meme right now. Most musicians of any stripe know better. It takes a person with a soul to operate it with any real skill and enjoyment. Sometimes the uninitiated look upon electronic drum kits with the same level of disdain. Whatever feeling you may have had in the past regarding electronic kits, I would say you can now shelve those thoughts permanently. Delivery: I live in California and the kit was shipped from New Jersey. I believe I had ordered it on a Sunday night and it had arrived by Friday morning via Fedex truck. I was surprised at at the size of the box and it took about thirty minutes to unpack and organize before setting up. The amount of trash it generated was obscene, but honestly unavoidable as each piece had to be individually wrapped up. Dealing with breakage wouldn't have been fun. Set Up: It took about an hour and a half to completely set up the kit and I have no previous experience setting any type of drum kit up at all. But on a good note, the instructions were rather simple, well-written and I accomplished the task rather quickly. I purchased the kit for my 7 year old son, so I had to build it with his smaller posture in mind and tried to set it up so everything would be well placed. The Quality: The quality is actually quite impressive. The joints are a hard plastic with metal screws and different places are reinforced with thick rubber. The frame itself is all metal. This is by no means a chincy or cheap set up in terms of manufacturing. The pads, cymbals and computer module are all sturdy and well designed. Having scoped out several sets at different music stores like Sam Ash and the Guitar Center, everything else does look really cheap by comparison, regardless of price point. This really is a sharp looking and impressive set. Playability: This electronic drum kit really does sound like a real drum kit and has the best sampled sound of any of the kits I looked at / played on. If you strike the metal clamp portion of the under side of the pad, which can also be done with a side strike of your stick, it sounds like you're hitting the outer casing of the drum. There are so many fine details in the equipment that it's almost unreal. For example: Sound variance of how hard you hit the cymbal versus a tap. It's very touch sensitive. The cymbals preform like real metal, or as close as one might perceive with the human ear. The ring is lasting. I usually only to have to consider stuff like this when buying guitar strings, but brass is a whole other animal. Rim shots sound like rim shots and Head shots sound like Head shots. Accompanying musical presets / songs are actually something you can play along with, and they cover a variety of different styles. Built-in Metronome, Tempo control, Kit sounds, fill out the electronic aspect nicely and leaves nothing wanting. To Consider: 1. Yes, some of the pre-wired cables could be a few inches longer so you can adjust the cymbal placement as some folks like the Ride all the way to the right. But the module has a readout with shows which drum pad is being struck which actually helps a lot with practicing timing and setting up. 2. The enclosed drumsticks are very, very basic and must be immediately replaced. 3. The Kit DOES NOT come with a Kick Pedal in the USA. I don't really understand that, other than KAT must think that Americans can afford the added $45 / $75 for the kick pedal, but don't want to risk a return outside of the US due to its absence. I purchased the box set which includes Kick Pedal / Throne / Headphones instead, offered by KAT by just over Seventy-Five bucks. A good buy for sure and compatible with the KAT KT3 set, despite it not saying so. Happy playing. Highly recommended. *****

"Below Expectations"
Overall: I recently bought the Kat 3 Pro electronic drum set. I only paid $800 for it so I thought I got a good deal but having the set a week now it leaves a lot to be desired. I like the rack and the way it looks, the three boom cymbals, the two floor toms, the bigger trigger pads for the snare and floor toms but the sound quality of the module isn't there, there is not one dry drum sound in the module and anyone that has mixed a live band knows where that's going all the sounds are these ringy long sustainable sounds that you can not adjust, it seems to be geared more for hip hop and rap drummers than pop or rock. I have a Yahama Dxpress set from the 90's so I am using that brain, the sounds are of much better quality. Two of the the 8in" drum pads are all ready not working properly the are intermittent. I sent in the warranty. I have sent them emails to there "costumer service" about replacing the pads but have received no reply. If this is their Pro Set I shutter to think about the cheaper ones. In short unless you can buy this set very cheaply and are prepared to start buying pads for it then stay away from it, save up your money and buy a Yahama DTX 562 or better and add some more pads to it.
