Breakbeats by Ludwig marks the return of Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson to the drums of his youth. With a setup compact enough for an apartment, cab and a coffeehouse, Breakbeats by Ludwig are an ideal companion for the gigging, urban percussionist.
The driving force behind these drums are the 7-ply poplar shells that produce punchy, focused attack with dry, clipped resonance. A 45-degree bearing edge ensures quick, classic shell response, while triple-flanged hoops will endure the best rimshots you can produce. Positioned on an included lift for optimum reach, Breakbeat’s 16″ x 14″ bass drum, 13″ x 13″ floor tom, 10″ x 7″ tom and 14″ x 5″ matching wood snare not only fit into tight places, but also break down quickly.
This shell pack also includes velvet storage bags for a convenient transport option. Additionally, you can use the bags to reduce volume by draping each bag over each drum. Available in three durable wrap finishes, Breakbeats by Questlove has a footprint as “tight” as their namesake.
