Slagverk Ludwig Breakbeat LC179X, Questlove, 16, Black Gold Sparkle
Drums designed with the city in mind. With a setup thats compact enough for an apartment, cab and a coffeehouse, Breakbeats by Ludwig are an ideal companion for the gigging, urban percussionist. Co-created by a master of modern groove, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, this 4-piece kit was designed to be "break-able" for a gritty, raw downbeat.
Positioned on an included lift for optimum reach, Breakbeat's 16 x 14" bass drum, 13 x 13" floor tom, and 10 x 7" tom not only fit into tight places, but also break down quickly and easily. The driving force behind this shell pack is a 14 x 5" matching wood snare drum. The combination of this 16" kick and 14" snare produces the punchy, dry and "breakable" backbeat that is Questlove's signature.
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 an Azure Sparkle wrap, Breakbeats by Questlove has a footprint that is as original as the legend that created them. Cymbals and hardware sold separately.

"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."
