Expand your practice and performance options
An optional pedal switch facilitates start/stop, pattern change, and fill-in operations in pattern play mode, allowing you to effortlessly control the KR-11 without using your hands.
In Pad Play mode, the pedal switch allows you to play any drum tone for a more authentic drum-like performance (bass drum and hi-hat are pre-assigned at the factory).
The KR-11 also includes a headphone/line-out jack, providing the option to connect it to a PA, mixer, amp, or other devices, allowing you to play drum phrases through monitor speakers. It is so easy to do small guitar performances when running your KR-11 with a guitar amplifier.
Finger drumming with pad play mode
The 16 pads on the unit are assigned drum sounds such as the bass drum, snare, hi-hat, and cymbals. These pads can be used for a great finger drumming experience! The built-in velocity function responds to the strength of pad strikes, enabling the creation of more realistic drum patterns.
You can also save your pad performances to the user bank, enabling you to play back your favorite patterns at any time.
Compact, battery-powered, and equipped with built-in speakers, the KR-11 makes it effortless to enjoy performances on the street, outdoors, or anywhere else.
