The vibeKAT contains all of the expression and dynamics of the legendary MalletKAT Pro, but now offers an entirely new simplified interface. The concept of the vibeKAT is that each of its 100 User Kits are completely preprogrammed. Features like dampening and layering no longer need to be assigned. The user does not have to program any parameters in order to perform.
The instrument comes in a 4 octave configuration, with sounds built in from Kurzweil. The sounds include vibes, marimba, timpani, xylophone, bells, percussion, drum kits as well as standard instruments like piano, bass, woodwinds, etc. The vibeKAT frame is white, and comes with 3/8" nuBounce pads that also have a specially coated black nylon top that protects the pads from scuffing and from fading in direct sunlight when played on the field.
