Yamaha Junior Kit Manu Katché Signatur Komplett trommesett
A Junior Kit for any educational setting
The evolution of the concept of a “low-height junior kit that drummers can use for real performance,” the Junior Kit is a flexible drum kit adjustable to a wide range of heights, allowing anyone from small children to adults the world over to enjoy playing quality drums. On the advice of Yamaha artist Manu Katché, the number of toms has been increased from one to two, in a two-up one-down configuration. This was motivated by a desire to enable drummers to correctly play scores that use two toms as standard. Intended for use in educational settings, where other small diameter kits cannot be used satisfactorily, the Junior Kit will meet the needs of any performance situation.
Developed in collaboration with Manu Katché, the Junior Kit offers superior performance in a small diameter configuration that can be adjusted to a wide range of heights.
This kit features a two-tom layout, based on Manu Katché’s desire to create a kit for use in educational settings where scores with two-tom notation are standard. Although a small-diameter kit, this configuration is useful for drummers all over the world, allowing them to play performances that conform to the common standard.
The Junior Kit is comfortable for adults to play, while children can play it with ease when set to its lowest height. This flexible configuration makes the Junior Kit a joy to play for both adults and children across the globe, in any performance setting.
The Junior kit comes equipped with a riser that can be adjusted to accommodate a range of heights, allowing performance with a floating bass drum set to the optimum height for the drummer.
The wide legs ensure the stability of the bass drum and feature rough surfaces to allow the pedal to be fastened firmly even when using metal hoops, and giving the kit a level of power that belies its small diameter.
The Junior Kit offers the punch and power that is typical of birch kits. There is no undesirable spillover of sound, so adjacent drums do not interfere with each other. Perfect for recording situations, this distinctive birch sound allows each note you play to be clearly distinguished.
Designed to be adjustable across a flexible range of heights, the Junior Kit’s hardware has been simplified to provide just the functionality needed while retaining its existing solidity, resulting in a lightweight construction. One set fits in a single box, making it extremely portable.
