Quality Starter Kit


The Ludwig Evultion kit is a great starter kit for anyone looking to get started on drums. This kit comes with everything. Drums, Cymbals, Hardware, and even a drum throne which very few kits come with. Best part is that not only does it come with cymbals but they are quality Zildjian cymbals and not no name brand ones. You won't go wrong with this set.

Everything you need to get started!


WOW! This drumkit comes with EVERYTHING you need to get started as a drummer! At an amazing price, these poplar shells sound incredible and afford you the flexibility to play any type of music. All you need is a pair of sticks and you're ready to rock out!




Great Drum Kit!


This is a fantastic intermediate drum set that is offered at a great price. What a value. The drums are loud and resonant and the finishes look great. And can you believe everything that it includes. I have been recommending them to all my drummer friends. Check out this great unit when you can.




Great intermediate kit!


In 4 gorgeous wraps, the Evolution Maple by Ludwig is an amazing deal of an beginner/intermediate kit. Outfitted with Remo Pinstripe heads and accompanied by their classic micro lugs, this kit has a retro vibe that you cant always find in this day and age. The maple shells offer a very smooth even tone, versatile enough to jump between genres for those that enjoy many different styles of drumming. I highly recommend this kit to the beginner that is starting from scratch. Along with the amazing shell pack, a ZBT and hardware pack is included. ZBTs being classic and reliable cymbals from the worlds oldest cymbal company and sturdy double braced hardware by Ludwig add up to an amazing package deal that is equaled by no other.

If you are just getting started, or coming back from a 20 year break of playing drums, this is a great kit for the price! This kit includes all double braced hardware, and Zildjian cymbals! It really gets you going from the start. I love the 2 ply Pin Strip heads that come with the kit, along with the Wood Bass hoop. I can practice or even play out at my local venue with this kit. With care and proper maintenance this kit can last a the drummer a very longtime! The price point is half of what it would cost to buy the Shells(Drums), Cymbals, Hardware, and Seat, great package deal! This is a product review by Rocky at Sam Ash #57-Indianapolis, IN.

Fantastic practice set or first drumkit


For many people Ludwig is a household name since Ringo showed off his black oyster pearl kit on the Ed Sullivan back in the 60's. The Ludwig Brand has been around for over a hundred years making drums. The Element Evolution outfit gives you everything you need to get started drumming and can also make a fanastic value for a practice kit for a seasoned player looking for a deal. You start with a 5 piece shell set constructed of poplar wood a tonewood that's been in drum making for many decades which gives you an even ended punchy tone. Unlike a lot of kits in it's class Ludwig gives you a set of Remo UT Pinstripes for your toms, a Powerstroke 3 style kick head, and a Coated Ambassador snare head making it easier to get great tone and feel. You get a full set of double braced hardware including the throne, so at least to get started you don't have any hidden additional costs like with some low end kits and most importantly you know it's built to last. For cymbals you get a set of Zildjian ZBT cymbals which are a great entry level cymbal and again a pretty big step up from a lot of the cymbals bundled with low end starter kits. The Red, Blue, and Black Sparkle finishes are durable and have a great retro appeal. So again if you're shopping for your first drumkit this is a great option, if you're a seasoned player looking for a deal on a good practice kit again a fantastic option.
