I bought this to round out my percussion effects without dragging a ton of gear. In that regard, I am happy. Lots of latin effects, tambourines, claves, etc. But I don't get why they have three different cowbell sounds, but no electro tom or gong effects.

Also, it is cumbersome to select the effect. You have to push the button up to 25 times to get to where you want. A rotary dial or the ability to scroll thru the choices while holding the button would be nice.

But the biggest problem is the volume. I played this thru three different pa systems, and have to max it and the pa out to get about half the level of the mikes. And when you do that, you get a nasty hiss on the speakers. So I have to turn it down between songs, and if we are playing a large room it gets lost altogether. The company was nice enough to swap out my first one thinking it might be a problem with that particular unit, but the new one does the same thing.

        Good sounding unit, easy to play. Interface requires a little learning curve to call up sounds, but not bad. Very light weight means having to use a sturdy stand, and the mount is a little odd. 'Wound up using a light stand that fit pretty well. Remarkable technology for the price.

            Comments about KAT Percussion Electronic Drum and Percussion Pad Sound Module:

            I just added this to my Roland TD-1K drums, and I have it going through a KAT 50w drum monitor. A quick and affordable way to add lots of voices to your kit, it is very easy to set up and get playing. Sounds are high quality; I have mine set to a tambourine, cowbell, clave, and conga, and changes can be made quickly for different music styles. The pads are slightly harder than my Roland drum pads, but they still feel realistic and not cheap. If you need to add some percs to an acoustic or electronic kit, get it!

            Comments about KAT Percussion Electronic Drum and Percussion Pad Sound Module:

            I assumed there would be memory locations for quick changes for setups, but there isn't so you have to change drum pad sounds manually or use the pads to trigger an external module and change sounds that way. Not very convenient for stage use, but I suppose that's why the price is low. It is useful as a hand percussion instrument or basic percussion module - as long as you don't have to change the sounds on stage quickly!

              Comments about KAT Percussion Electronic Drum and Percussion Pad Sound Module:

              I purchased this product to add drum and percussion sounds to loops that I use for performance and practice. The product is easy to use and the sounds are good (although somewhat limited). The level, tuning and other parameters of each sound can be adjusted. The feel of the pads seems good to me, although I am only a hobbyist level drummer. I would definitely recommend this product for the purpose I use it for - especially for the price.

                Comments about KAT Percussion Electronic Drum and Percussion Pad Sound Module:

                Used to get some kick and hi-hat sounds for solo guitar accompaniment without the bulk and volume of a kick and hi-hat.

                Takes awhile to get settings in a workable state but the sounds are okay once you get it set up.

                The hi-hat (using the Kat Hi-Hat Pedal) is disappointing though. You can only assign two different hi-hat sounds to the pedal, neither of which is very realistic for an open-close-open type of action.

                For those considering trying the Yamaha silent-kick pedal with this unit, it takes some modification to get a decent response (Yamaha has a resistor divider internal to the pedal that cuts its output in half, even with the sensitivity maxed out on the Kat, you really needed to hit it hard).

                  Comments about KAT Percussion Electronic Drum and Percussion Pad Sound Module:

                  I was quite surprised with the sound quality this unit has. You can tailor each of the four pads and adjust levels of reverb, sensitivity, stereo left and right, tuning, and volume. The samples are well done. It took a few minutes to catch on to learn the features, and is quite intuitive to use. It comes with a mount to enable you to use a snare stand. It is quite portable and will replace my hand drums and percussives in live situations where we plugin. You can use the stereo out in a stereo sound system, or run one mono channel to a powered monitor and the other into the sound system. It is well thought out and very versatile.

                      Sometimes does not trigger snare when high hat is triggered in 16th notes. I also a Pyle 7 Place drum set table top that actually works much better than this unit. This unit would be great if you have a real high hat and real cymbals. But then you could not practice in silence.

                        This pad is awesome for my music room. It is very compact and easy to use. Allows me to lay down very simple drum tracks (I'm a guitarist). Works great. Only things they could add would be presets for the pads for quick changes (without having to individually change the MIDI notes on each pad each time), and also the ability to generate MIDI notes above 99. I use EZD 2 (which doesn't allow you to change the MIDI note assignments for a given drum and for the Latin percussion set several of the drums have assigned notes above 100, but this pad can only generate up to MIDI note #99). But in spite of those I still give it 5 stars (note: I don't happen to use any of the internal sounds at all, I only use it for MIDI generation)
