I just got these, tuned them up, and tried them out. First off, if sound is the main test for the value of this set, it could be sold for three times what it cost. I'm serious. The corners that were cut by Ludwig to produce this did not fundamentally hurt the kit: the throne, as others have mentioned, is not only cheap but a hazard to your back's health, but to me the throne's an add-on. The lugs are made of plastic, but I wouldn't have known unless I looked closely or someone told me. Maybe they'll break sooner? I don't know. I've had no problem with them under decent tension. And the other hardware: I don't know if Ludwig has upgraded what gets included with this set since others have had such horror stories, but the hat stand, cymbal stand, and pedal, while being quite basic (and obviously not intended for heavy gigging) are perfectly solid and functional. Maybe they're shipping with different heads, too, because these are fine. Yes, they're the single ply clear kind that produce that open, tympanic sound. Just like other single ply clears, they're not meant for frequent heavy hitting or for a darker, dryer, short-sustain sound, so I don't fault Ludwig for them not lasting very long or not sounding like Pinstripes or Emperors. Where it counts most--how the woods produce a tone, bearing edges, etc.--you can tell Ludwig focused on this, and got it right. If I don't tell anyone these are roughly $300 drums, they would never know. I couldn't be more satisfied with them.

I had this drumset for a month and everything started falling to pieces. First of all I changed the heads to Remo Pinstrip which I strongly recomend. The cymbals the kit came with sucked which a strongly recomend Zildjian Customs. The stands woble to much and fall down causing the cymbals to fall down. The bass pedal it comes with is very crapy and falls apart. I strongly recomend changing to a DW 400 pedal. The tom rack slips down and will not stay. The bass drum and snare drum do have good quality to them when you change the pitch to just the right spot. The toms are okay but the hardware holding the heads on do not hold together well. Overall if you are a hard rocker/metal, emu, punk, or jazz player with a formal style you should not buy this. If you are just starting and are playing solo you can buy this but I recomend a better kit and a better value one such as a Pearl, Tama or PDP. This series was made better back in John Bonhems day. I would storngly discourage buying this product even though it is cheap!

This is my very first drum set...however i have played on many. This is a great one but yes u need to replace the heads they suck!!! the pedal is okay the snare hardware on mine was all messed up tho. but i got that fixed and now it sounds sweet for the kind of music i play. if u like rock and punk and punk rock and alternative, this is very recommended i love it.

Awesome set!

By Shepherd

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Combo Drum Set:

I would just like to say that this set is awesome for how much it is. For a stock set the hardware isn't bad at all. The pedal squeaks a little bit, but you can't hear that when your playing. And the Zildjian Planet Z cybmbals were sweet! WAY better then normal stock cybmbals. So over all I say that this is a sweet set for anyone. Whether your a pro or just starting out!

Great Product for Advanced Players

By Nitrus

from Providence, RI

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Combo Drum Set:

Deffinetly worth the price. Product came promptly. The Bass Pedal and Hi-Hat Stands feel great, very responcive. The drums sound great, minimal ring and overtones. The snare is reasonable in tone, though it has a warmer crack then standard sizes. Still, Good value.

Awesome Set for the Price

By Steve B.-9TYiV

from Overseas

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Combo Drum Set:

This is a Great deal for the price for beginners to professionals. It is all what you put into this set over the time of playing. Add some Zildjiams ZBT's, a double pedal, new heads (REMO Pinstripe), and a dampener on your snare - You're good to go. I play professionally and to be honest with you, it has not given me any problem whatsoever. I'm overseas and didn't have a set, so a quick fix; I bought this set from Musicians Friend. For the snare drum, I did have to purchase a dampener and install it myself. Only do this if you know what you're doing. But after the adjustments and additions, from recording a gig; you'd never could tell that I paid this much for this set. This is a STEAL. I highly recommend this set to anyone. A Great Buy.

Great set that will last and great for newbs

By Rainman-oAIsU

from Bay Village, OH

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Combo Drum Set:

This kit is great, it is my first kit that I purchase myself. I have never really played drums or set a kit up from scratch but I figured it out in about an hour that was great. Also try to the deal with Zildjian cymbals. Bottom line great kit from what I have seen and it is very encouraging.
