Duke Ellington, Louie Bellson & "That Great Gretsch Sound"!
Referred to by Duke Ellington as “not only the world’s greatest drummer...
(but also) the world’s greatest musician!”, Louie Bellson has expressed
himself on drums since age three. At 15, he pioneered the double bass
drum set-up. At 17, he triumphed over 40,000 drummers to win the
Gene Krupa drumming contest.

Rock Bottom Music KAT Electronic Drums and Percussion Augusta GA and Aiken SC

Kat Percussion began as a small company back in 1985. 
Even in the early days of electronic drum development, KAT 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.

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