KAT Percussion - KA2 Digital Drum Set Amplifier

Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommendation

The KA2 was on our recommended list for Electronic Drum Amps from when we published our first edition back in March 2017 until October 2019 when it was out-ranked by higher rated models.


The KAT KA2 is a durable amplifier equipped with a powerful 200-watt drumming amp.

It features a 1"x1" compression driver for a crisp high-end sound, and a 3-band EQ for sound shaping with a presence "attack" control.

There are two 1/4" input jacks for drum input and a 1/8" input jack for external connectivity MP3 players and other digital devices.

Its large carry handle is an advantage for ease of transport.

Although this amp does get good marks for loudness, there are more highly rated options to consider which you'll find in our guide to Electronic Drum Amps.
