Reviewed by John Kimock, Drummer for Mike Gordon Band:

This was one of the first kits to come out to appeal to any drummer across the board. It sounds great when anyone plays it. I’ve known drummers who have toured with it and I also know it to be a great kit to teach on as well as start out a new drummer who hasn’t played on a kit before.

Questlove Ludwig Breakbeats Kit

This is the best kit for beginners needing somewhere to start.

  • Includes everything you need to get started
  • Cymblas are a better quality than most cymbals that come with all in kits
  • The portability is amazing
  • For the cost it’s cheap if you are a pro and want a portable kit
  • You can grow into this drumset
  • While cymbals are nice for a complete kit, to make this sound truly pro level, you will want new cymbals
  • Drumheads should be replaced
