Product Description

The Ludwig Breakbeats is designed for the gigging musician. "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)

Make It Fit
Breakbeats was designed with the city in mind. Positioned on a riser for optimum reach, its compact 14x16" bass drum, 7x10" tom, and 13x13" floor tom creates a set-up for sculpting grooves in tight spaces. It features Remo Pinstripe heads for pro-level tones, and comes with a multi-purpose bags for easy transport, and drum muting. The Breakbeats kit is available in White Sparkle, Black Sparkle, and Red Sparkle.

Break It Down
The tonal center of Breakbeats is a 5x14" matching wood snare drum. Create beats on the fly and make your voice heard at gigs, on the street, or in rehearsal.

Dial It In
Fitted with Remo heads, Breakbeats' 7-ply hardwood shells play like a full-sized kit; fusing low-end kick punch with focused tom and snare midrange.

Pack It Up
Packable, stackable, and portable, Breakbeats' compact size and included velvet storage bags make it ideal for the drummer on the move. Play it wide open or instantly change volume and tone by draping each bag over each drum.

Drums only - Hardware and cymbals sold separately.

Perfect for My Needs!

What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this for small club gigs and as the kit that we rehearse on in my basement practice space, and it's just as good a performance kit as it is a practice kit. Replaced the snare head, and did a mod on the kick head, but the shells are sturdy and the whole thing is great at the price point. Would recommend for beginners and up. But, really this is a solid kit for someone without a huge budget that doesn't want to sacrifice quality of sound.

1st drumset in the studio
What is your opinion of this product?
This is my 1st set of drums for studio recording. Although I love the drum set I wished it came with the hardware at least for the basics. If the hardware would've came with I would've saved me for time. I purchased this set and heard its another set of breakbeats with 3 toms instead of two. I haven't mic'd these drums, but this week I'm micing them and recording a few records I composed.

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
The Questlove Breakbeats kit rocks! When you live in the city and need to set up and break down fast without sacrificing sound and quality this is it! I own a wedding band booking agency, and with so many new working drummers not having cars to transport drums to smaller gigs, we decided to outfit our in house sound company with the Questlove Breakbeats kit for our commuting drummers. It has been a huge success without much of a change in set up/breakdown time or transporting space. Very small footprint leaving more stage real estate for singers and other musicians. So glad we took the chance on these. Sound is huge and tight even when not mic'ed up. Did a huge outdoor festival with 5000 people 3 weeks ago and used these babies mic'ed up. All I can say is wow!! Also had a great sound on the stage as well for all the musicians to feel the drums. We've used these for a full year now averaging about 3 gigs a week. Only thing changed was the kick drum head to Evans EMAD bass head.
