    Cheap, extremely sturdy and well constructed, looks awesome and the tones/ playability are excellent. I was concerned that the single zone pads wouldn't be very versatile but they are very accurate as far as pressure sensitivity so they mimic acoustic drums very well. I purchased a double bass pedal along with the set and it fits like a dream. I can really go crazy and everything stays solid and precise. Love love this kit. If you are curious about your first electric kit you probably have the same hesitation and uncertainties I had but I have to say that this kit is perfect for beginners as well as intermediate drummers. Great programed sounds and it works so good to play a laptop through it and route then both into your p.a./ stereo. Awesome kit A+

    Blown away

    I purchased this kit for my son for Christmas but I've been playing on it for a few days and the set is 100x better quality and sounding than I had expected. I purchased a PDP 502 double bass pedal along with it from Sweetwater and it works perfectly almost like it was made for it. Very solid construction and clean wiring once it's all set up. Awesome with headphones or amped through a p.a. or home stereo even. Very very happy

    Great Sounding Drum set

    This drum set is really great! I can't believe that it's this cheap for the quality you get. You can change each drum individually. You have 10 presets that you can change up to make your own. I listen to a lot of different styles of music. I have for my preset 4 the exact setup as the drummer from Avenged Sevenfold. It blew my mind that you can change each one to match up with almost any band out or any style of music there, if you wanted too. You do need to buy a Kick pedal for it. I woul suguessed the Tama Iron Cobra 200 It's a great pedal as well. A lot of famous drummers out there uses it a lot. Because everything on it is fully adjustable and it's a really great quality. Something else that is off topic. I love the little bags of candy you get when you order something from Sweetwater. It makes you feel good and like a kid again. Lets face it. Who doesn't like to feel like a kid again. You start thinking about old memories. Keep it up sweetwater. From now on you will always have my buisness so far everytime I order from here. I get it fast and in perfect condition.

    Great Kit for the $$$

    This kit can handle most of your needs with the ability to change the sounds of each drum and cymbals in all of the 10 preset kits. You can adjust the volume of each as well. So, you can tailor the kit to meet just about any genre of music you need. The kit was easy to set up and the brain is extremely "user friendly". The instructions don't translate very well but no worries, you won't need them. I researched several budget priced kits (some with not favorable reviews) and my Sweetwater sales associate recommended this kit over the others without hesitation. He definitely steered me in the right direction. If you are looking for a kit in the $500 range, go with the KT1 over the budget Alesis or Yamaha. Great bang for the buck!!

    New drums

    Great starter set. I am new to drums and was not sure what to look for. Like all instruments you can read reviews all day but in the end you need to put hands on it. The only complaint is the set does not include a kicker for the bass drum.

    Drum set is great

    I bought a new Kat drum set and am pleased with it. The service at Sweetwater is exellent. I also ordered a Roland keyboard a few months ago and it's perfect. Love it.

    KAT KT1 drum kit

    Great sounds. Feels like real drums.Easy to setup and play. The only thing I didn't like.................NO COWBELL sound.
    Had to buy a kick petal. I knew that when I got this set but it still sucks.
    Overall great set for the price. I would get the KT2 if I had to buy again. It has room for 2 more imputs.
    YES.........get you one today!
