Here is my best explanation:

'kit one' is the definition.
'apparatus' can be an answer for 'kit' (thesaurus). I'm not sure about the 'one' bit.

'a piano piece american' is the wordplay.
'a piano piece' becomes 'apparat' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'american' becomes 'us'.
'apparat'+'us'='APPARATUS'

'used in' is the link.
