Manu Katche

Yamaha Drums presents the Manu Katché Junior Kit


Manu Katche

Fortunately for the drumming world, Manu Katche who began to play classical piano at age 7 in Paris, France, switched to studying percussion at the Conservatorie National de Paris when he turned 15. After a few years at the Conservatorie he started doing session work with various artists and this experience later led to touring throughout France. International recognition followed after the 1986 Peter Gabriel’s multi platinum recording “So.” Many tours followed including the Amnesty tour and Secret World tour with Gabriel and the Brand New Day tour with Sting.

In and around the tours, Manu, not only performed and recorded with the two artists listed above, but such stars as Tracy Chapman, Joni Mitchell, Robbie Robertson, Tears for Fears, Dire Straits, Simple Minds, Michael Mcdonald, Bee Gees, Jan Garbeck, Joan Armatrading, Paul Young, Noah, Tori Amos, Beverly Craven, Julia Fordham, Nigel Kennedy, and Bob Hilary James. In addition to the touring and recording, Manu has been in the drum chair for several movie soundtracks: Quand les Etoiles, Le Demenagement, Mookie, Zone Franche, The Professional, and For the Love of the Game, plus two short films, Chinese Kitchen and Madeleine Patterneau.

FP-9500C Single Foot Pedal


Single Foot Pedal - Chain Drive and convertible to the Belt Drive.


The HS-1200 hi hat is ideal for drummers that prefer a three-legged stand, but still use a double pedal or play left foot clave patterns. The front two legs are single braced, allowing more room for placement of additional pedals. The third leg is double braced for more stability, and it has a retractable spike to keep it where you put it. The HS-1200 ships with a short pull rod to accommodate open-hand technique, and a longer rod for drummers that like their cymbals set up higher. The HS-1200 includes the new design locking clutch that will not come loose, even if you play your top cymbal very loose.
