Remo Pinstripe heads for professional tone, and comes with multi-purpose bags for easy transport, and drum muting. The tonal center of Breakbeats is a 5"x14" matching wood snare drum. Create beats on the fly and make your voice heard at gigs, on the street, or in rehearsal.

"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."
- Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson (The Roots)

7-ply Hardwood Shells
Fitted with Remo heads, Breakbeats' 7-ply hardwood shells play like a full-sized kit, fusing low-end kick punch with focused tom and snare midrange.

Kit itself is nice. Need all Hardware still


Wish the picture did not show the entire kit. Very misleading



Perfect compact kit


I really wanted a compact kit that sounded great and the Breakbeats by Questlove lives up to its 5-star reputation. These drums are high quality, sound amazing, look beautiful, and are super budget friendly.



Highly recommended! I would DEFINITELY buy again!


The Ludwig Breakbeats by Questlove kit is very portable and has a fantastic sound for the size of the drums. With proper tuning the drums perform great even with the stock heads. The bass drum can be tuned down low for punch or higher for a brighter sound when played softly that might be beneficial in a small venue. The toms sound fantastic and can also be tuned to suit type of music being played. I have no issues with the snare drum that some say they have had. Again, if tuned and dampened properly the snare produces a good projecting crack and also sounds good when played softly. Again this is with the stock heads they come with. Higher quality heads would only improve the great sounds you can get from this kit. I am extremely pleased and love the portability. You might want to buy compact drum travel bags as others have stated. The bags that come with the kit are not adequate for transport. Ludwig does not make a travel bag set for this kit, but the Pearl Midtown bag set fits this kit like it was made for it (Pearl PMTBG), with one bag for the bass and another for the two toms and snare. All in all - a FANTASTIC portable drum kit!



Ludwig Questlove drum set


Terrific smaller drum set, much easier to transport, and about 1/2 as loud.



Great drumset and exactly fits my needs


Was looking for a set to replace our old set at church. Wanted to minimize the size of set on stage to make room for other band members. Sound is great. Have all Evans 360 heads and a little dampening on drums. Bought this set for size and also sound. Wanted the great acoustic drum sound but not too loud; hence the small bass drum and other pieces. Recommend this set; for the price you can not beat it
