KAT Percussion KA1: Highest Rated Drum Amplifier - 2019.10

Gearank Recommendation

The KA1 appeared on our recommended list for Electronic Drum Amps from March 2018 until May 2021 when it was out-ranked by other amplifiers.


The KA1 showcases responsive and clean amplification for monitoring electronic drums in small environments such as rehearsal rooms and home studios.

It features a large carry handle for easy transportation, three band EQ for mixing, and other inputs for plugging other sound sources or instruments.

It provides good separation and response from kick drum and cymbals.

If you find the highs sound too thin you can adjust the EQ settings to your taste.

At an affordable price, this drum amp is ideal for practicing at home or playing small gigs.
