KT3 - advanced, high performance digital drum set

The new 6-piece kt3 digital drum set represents KAT's latest 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 an all-new bell trigger and most importantly, a new 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.
