Ludwig collaborated with groove-master Questlove to design the compact yet potent Ludwig Breakbeats by Questlove 4-Piece Shell Kit Drum Set! Designed with performers on the go in mind, the Breakbeats kit by Ludwig features a compact 14x16-inch bass drum on a riser for optimum reach, 7x10-inch tom, and 13x13-inch floor tom so you can groove in the tightest spaces. Breakbeats also features a 5x14-inch matching wood snare drum.
‘I wanted to build a device that was apartment-friendly and compact for the street musician; but also something that was quality-sounding. A gritty, raw, 'Break-able' kit for gigging in clubs that you can fit in a cab. Breakbeats by Questlove does it all.’ - Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson (The Roots)
