Purchased one of the re-designed Accent kits in late-1999 for my then 12 year-old son. I played Leedy/Slingerlands back in the late-'60s and early-'70s, so I was reasonably aware of the needs of a beginning drumset player. Compared the Accent kit to Tama Swingstar, Yamaha DP and Pearl Forum. Accent had advantages with its tom mount, clamp-style brackets, 8-lug floor tom, larger diameter tubes for the stands and the price. Was impressed then, and remain impressed with the ball and rod double tom mount, which includes a built-in mount for a cymbal/accessory stand. While one of the Accent wingnuts stripped pretty immediately (Christmas morning...glad that I had some metric hex nuts from my motorcycle supplies), I replaced them with "T" nuts as provided on the cymbal stands and the mount has since been rock steady. The memory locks and clamp-style brackets for the mounted and floor toms have proven to be virtually bullet-proof and quite strong. While my son never experienced the slippage problems on the kickdrum spurs I ordered an extra set of memory locks for the tom mount and put them on the bass drum legs. They fit the spur rods perfectly and the brackets on the kick are the same as the ones on the toms so that the locks key right in...voila...no spur slippage and the kickdrum is in the same position every time that you set up. The stands (single-braced) have held up extremely well, though you do have to be a bit careful when folding the legs up, but once set up, the legs spread out far enough that stability has been no problem whether my now 20 year-old is playing them or I'm doing a bit of "practice." With the current Accent kits now including double-braced stands, I would see no reason to replace them with any other stands. Due to the price advantage, I was able to replace the then-questionable kick pedal with a Ludwig "classic" pedal, which has performed very well, without problems (though it isn't as adjustable as many of the pedals currently available). My son has also acquired a Pearl double-pedal and likes it alot, but I prefer the Ludwig single pedal (probably because I've adjusted it to my preference). We replaced the toms' batter heads with Remo Emperors and though the tuning was a bit fussy, the toms now sound very good. Put an Evans E-MAD head on the kick and it's now like a cannon! I'd certainly put the Accent kit with these heads up against a pre-suspension mount Tama Rockstar or Yamaha Stage Custom, as far as sound quality goes. The Accent snare sounded pretty good once I put a studio ring on it and the throw-off and strainer have worked well. I must admit, however, that my son generally uses the Acrolite snare that we purchased for him for school band...I understand that ithas been the 2nd most recorded snare drum for popular music since the early-'60s. All in all, an excellent kit for the price and one that can be made comparable to much more expensive drums with little effort or expense.

I love Ludwig, but this is not the Ludwig I know. I bought these drums about a year ago. The sound is good, but the hardware on the toms is terrible. The nuts and bolts on the tom mounts stripped the first time I used them. Plus, the bass drum legs will not hold up. I can't count how many times I had to adjust them during gigs. I recommend you save your money and get the Mapex M Birch kit. Much better quality. I still feel that vintage Ludwig is the best, but these drums don't live up to the Ludwig name.

Awesome Kit

By PxMoney

from paducah

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

I can't beleive it's considered an "entry-level" set! This thing is unbeleivable! You put a couple of small pillows in the bass drum and it sounds deep and thick. The snare sounds amazing if you get a Remo head on it. As well as the toms. Overall the playability of this kit is great. You can't go wrong with the oldest and most trusted name in drums.Buy these effin drums!

Good Set

By Iron Man

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

This is a great set. The only thing wrong with this is the tom heads suck. I suggest replacing them with Remo Heads. Also I would suggest maybe sticking a pillow or blanket in the bass drum to avoid ringing. And definatly replace the cymbals cause those suck too. Other wise you get what you paid for. Good set.

AWSOME SET!!!

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

I've been using these drums for about two months now and love them!! Great for the extremely low price. I did have to get some remos to keep the overtones down. The quality of these drums are amazing. Ludwig is top of the line. If it is good enough for Zeppelin, then it's good enough for me. But this product. You WON'T be wasting your money.

Great begining set

By Jonathan-GJm7j

from Fort Gordon, Ga

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

I have had this set for about 6 months now. It was the first set I ever bought. Was just looking for something to get started on... nothing to fancy yet. This is a great set for beginers. They can discover the drums with a great quality set with a fair price. The only thing I wasn't too pleased with was the bass drum pedal. The store I bought it from gave me the basic ludwig pedal.. I quickly changed it out with a much better double pedal... But for getting started it was good.The bass is loud with plenty of tone. I put a pillow in it and it sounds like a million bucks. The toms are warm and punchy, and with the right heads on the toms and bass, and it sounds just as good as more expensive sets.The snare is also amazing. Real warm, with the ability to crank it up and get a high pitched pop. Again great set!!!

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

This is a great drum kit for beginners. Heads, cymbals, and pedal needs to be replace for greater performance. This is a great drum kit, but I would rather chose the Pearl Forum kit over this because of its cheaper price and quality.

Pretty good....

By JazzySnazzy

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

This is a great set for beginners. It has the basic tom-toms, floor-tom, snare, hi-hats, and Crash-Ride.My opinion of this set is as follows:The snare drum is crap. It works well for a little while then it starts ringing no matter how you tune it. The toms are good. They are a little ringy(What I suggest to do is take off the bottom head and put a 5-6" piece of duct-tape on the inside of the top head). It gives you the deep, boom that a tom should have. The bass-drum is a little ringy too but a small quilt or blanket can take care of that(Open up the bass and just stick a folded blanket or quilt in). The Hi-hats are pretty good. They are a little clanky and dont always close all the way but sound good. The 18" Crash-Ride is crap. It is good for beginners but any experienced drummer will agree that a nice set of Sabians or something like 'em. When you hit the Crash-Ride, it rings like hitting a ride. NOT good for playing heavy rock or metal.Overall, this set is good. I have to say, with some new cymbals and some new drumheads, this set will improve and is fun to play on.Highly recommended for any enthusiastic beginner.

Gnarly Set!

By FDDrummer

from Roanoke, VA

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

I have been playing with this set for around 5 years now, as it has been the only set i've owned. I have never had any trouble with it, and i have absolutely NO complaints. Sure, the toms and bass drum need tuning, but thats normal for all kits. I have no regrets concerning this set, and I plan on using it till i can afford another one, which will probably not be for a long time!GREAT SET!!! *****

very solid set

By steve-o10

from Michigan

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

This set is very good for any level player, the hardware is very sturdy and will hold together if you take care and maintain it. The Only bad things on this set are the stock heads and the bass pedal. The pedal doesnt have the greatest feel so you may want to upgrade, and the stock head sound pretty bad even when they are properly tuned. Get some evans or remos and you will be good to go. I plan on keeping this set and building off it because it is a great platform for expanding.

Comments about Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Power Drum Set:

this set is sweet. i got it for Christmas and it is awesome! the only problems are that the rack toms sound kinda similar. but other then that, all you have to do is buy another cymbal stand and dampen the heads and your ready to roll. also, the pedal is a little flimsy so id suggest that you get a new one.
