I’ve got a feeling this is going to be a long blog post 'cause there’s so much to tell you about this new drum kit, but trust me, it’ll be worth a read! (Okay, if you don’t want to read it all you don’t have to)
Ludwig have released a new compact drum kit for 2013, the Breakbeats by Questlove. This Ludwig drum kit has been designed with the gigging city drummer in mind, with it’s small set-up comprising of a 16” x 14” bass drum, 10” x 7” tom, 13” x 13” floor tom and 14” x 5” snare drum, the ideal set-up if you’re short on space but still need a top quality sounding drum kit!
The Breakbeat drum kit is a result of Ludwig Drum Company and well-known, professional drummer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. Ahmir aimed to…
Ludwig and Ahmir collaborated and have produced just that.
Sound quality is a vital part of any performance, but this important factor can be lost with smaller drum set-ups. Luckily, Ahmir has been there himself and understands the needs of the modern drummer and so has created the Breakbeat by Questlove drum kit from experience, resulting in a compact drum kit with excellent sound quality.
Yes, every musician wants to sound great but it’s a bonus if you look great too, and the Ludwig Breakbeat drum kit wont let you down in that department. Not only does this drum kit deliver beautiful sounds but also has a beautiful Azure Sparkle finish… Talk about the perfect drum kit!
The Ludwig Breakbeats Questlove kit comes as a shell pack, meaning drum and cymbal stands aren’t included, but you will receive a bass drum riser, allowing you to get the kit to full-size playable height should you require. This 4-piece shell pack also comes complete with velvet storage bags to keep your drums protected from dust and moisture. The velvet drum bags can also be used as dampeners. You’re able to change the volume and tone by simply draping each bag over each drum. (Quirky idea, but it really works!)
We’re one step ahead of the game and have ordered two of these Ludwig drum kits already! (You know us, always thinking ahead!) So if you’re a drummer that’s a bit short on rehearsal space, play in small venues or maybe you’re a street musician? Regardless of which, this compact drum kit will fit the bill and wont let you down!
