Comments about Ludwig Element Evolution 5-Piece Drum Set:

Picked these up after being away from acoustic drums for nearly 35 years. I did not want to spend $3K for a kit. Other than some availability issues (described below) I was extremely impressed with the construction of the set. All drums except the floor tom and bass were fully assembled. There were even extra tension rods included! The heads are Remo pin-stripe double-ply. The drums respond well and sound great! The hardware was the biggest surprise. Seem to be medium to heavy duty stands with two height adjustments, memory locks and the booms store in the stands if you want to use them as stationary stands. Dual tom mount has infinite positions and pedals are solid.

I'm a big fan of Zildjian cymbals and it was good to include them in the package. For a beginner, the ZBT level cymbals are good, and well made but are a bit heavy and for someone who plays, will probably get replaced by a higher grade. Over all, a very well built and equipped package for the price. Ludwig still lives up to their name.

Comments about Ludwig Element Evolution 5-Piece Drum Set:

I always wanted a set of ludwigs. I had Premier and Slingerlands when I was young. I hadn't had a set of drums for years and wanted a complete set just to try my hand again after not playing for almost 15 years. I'm really impressed by the value and quality of this package. Got delivered in less than a week, Set up was easy. I feel like I'm 10 years old again!.
