The only thing in the industry with a longer history than Ludwig is percussion itself. More than a century ago, the Ludwig brothers founded their company in Chicago with a mission to reinvent the bass drum pedal. And once they had done that, they set their sights on the product that (little did they know) would really make them famous: the snare drum. In the 1920s, the first Ludwig snares hit the market, and that was the birth of Ludwig as we still know it today. Of course, other drums have been added to the mix since the '20s, and with Ludwig drum sets and drum kits, you can gear yourself up with an entire set from scratch in no time.
If you're new to the percussion scene, Ludwig has some beginner-friendly options that ought to be just right. For young players, there's the Junior Outfit Drum Set. It's a size down from a traditional set, making it much more accessible for a growing drummer. And Ludwig hasn't left adult beginners out of the loop, either: check out the Accent Series Complete Drumset or the Breakbeats by Questlove 4-Piece Shell Pack to get up and running with an affordable full-sized kit.
Are you an experienced pro looking for a drum set that's truly high-end? In that case, Ludwig is more than ready to gear you up with options like the Legacy Classic Liverpool 4 4-Piece Shell Pack or the Ludwig Classic Maple 4-Piece Shell Pack with 22" Bass Drum. One of the most important aspects of drumming at the professional level is customization, and since choosing the hardware is up to you, these shell packs give you all the power to tailor your set to your exact tastes.
Nobody knows your drumming style and preferences like you do, so there's no one else but yourself who can decide which percussion is the right choice. But what goes without saying is that there's a fantastic option for you somewhere in this selection of Ludwig drum sets and drum kits. There's something for every player from beginner to expert, so don't hesitate to look for your next setup right here.
