About KAT Percussion

Kat Percussion began as a small company back in 1985. Owner Bill Katoski and his partner Mario DeCiutiis had a vision to create the best and most innovative electronic drum products the world had ever seen. That goal to make professional e-drum products at the highest level of playability and performance is still alive and well today. When Bill sold the company to Mario in the early 90's the company was renamed Alternate Mode. Mario DeCiutiis, known for his creative thinking and boundless energy is still the chief innovator at Alternate Mode. Over the years, DeCiutiis has developed many innovative and revolutionary electronic drums and mallet percussion products including the malletKAT, panKAT, drumKAT and TrapKAT.

Even in the early days of electronic drum development, DeCiutiis understood that the feel and response of the instrument was every bit as important as its sound, so he spent years developing electronic pad surfaces that responded like the original acoustic instrument. As a result, Alternate Mode's products are widely known as some of the most musically satisfying electronic instruments on the market today.

Alternate Mode's Revolutionary DrumKAT
  In 2012, KMC Music, one of the largest independent U.S. distributors of musical instruments and accessories teamed up with DeCiutiis to develop an electronic drum set product line that possessed both superior performance and satisfying response at an affordable price.

The KAT Percussion Digital Drum Set line was born and KMC Music has proudly introduced the KT1 and KT2 Digital Drum Sets - the result of an amazing and exciting collaborative effort between the KAT Percussion Product Management Team and Mario DeCiutiis. Plans are already in place to grow the KAT Percussion line in the near future as KMC Music continues to expand its offering to musicians of all levels.
