Special interview with Ms. Fumiko Yamazaki. She is a Toyko-based vibraphone player.

1. Which KAT instrument do you play?

I have been playing malletKAT Pro (3oct.) for 2 years.

2. What do you like about it?

I like its mobility and possibility. I usually carry it in the hard case by car. I appreciate that it does not have many parts like vibraphones. I use vibraphone sound when I don't set a normal vibraphone up. But when I do, I use bass, steel pan, marimba, and funny sounds for soloing. I am enjoying various sounds.

malletKAT is not just a substitution for a normal vibraphone. It allows you to play more colors.
