KT-200 Drum Kit
KAT Percussion has introduced a new electronic drum kit. The KT-200 features a new look and features. Stepping away from its long-standing design look of gray cymbals, white pads, and a chrome rack, KAT Percussion has turned to a black and charcoal combination for this new kit, with the only hint of white showing up on the mesh head of the snare pad.

The KT-200 is designed to be used as a professional electronic drum kit but is easy enough to set up and use that any beginner would not feel intimidated, and its modest footprint means it can be placed just about anywhere. It comes with 232 built-in drum sounds featuring French Dream's sampling technology, which utilizes digital technology to record the sound of real instruments, rigorously collecting the sound quality of the original drum. The user will also find a simple and easy-to-use interface and a fully customizable sound library. With its state-of-the-art velocity-sensitive triggers, you can set parameters on the drum pad triggers, thus ensuring the best possible playing response, avoiding potential sound delay and repetition. The innovative Coach function combined with the built-in metronome will help all drummers with their accuracy, tempo, timing, and quickness. The hardware of the KT-200 is specially designed to minimize crosstalk, and the control unit has a USB port that supports USB flash disk audio players and USB-MIDI.
