      Ludwig

      You don't have to settle for a brand you've never heard of just because you're a beginner.

      Get your complete drum set for an incredibly nice price with this Ludwig Accent Combo 5-piece drum set and Zildjian starter cymbal pack.

      Ludwig Accent Combo 5-Piece Drum Set
      You get famous Ludwig quality in these select wood drum shells, which include a matching wood snare when you order this combo 5-piece drum kit. The Ludwig drum set features a 22" x 16" bass, 12" x 10" and 13" x 11" toms, 16" x 16" floor tom, and a 14" x 6-1/2" snare—each with a wrapped finish. Drum hardware includes LA214FP bass pedal, snare stand, cymbal stand, hi-hat stand, and a throne.

      Zildjian Starter Cymbal Pack
      This Zildjian ZBT 3-Cymbal Pack includes a 14" crash, 18" crash/ride and a pair of 13" hi-hats. Sound grooves and round hammer strikes in a simple circular pattern on the top surface of ZBT cymbals magnify the basic sound of the distinctive ZBT alloy. The Zildjian ZBT hi-hats produce a sharp and focused sound with an excellent, bright chick sound. The ZBT crash/ride cymbal produces a cutting ride sound with good crash qualities. The 14" crash has a brilliant finish and provides easy playability—the perfect first crash cymbal.

      The bright, intense, high-pitched sound of the Zildjian ZBT cymbals cut through the mix. The sheet origin and lathing techniques create high-volume projection that speaks quickly and brightly when struck then decays rapidly. Since Zildjian ZBT cymbals are pressed and lathed from sheets of uniform, high-quality bronze alloy, they are remarkably consistent.

      The highly polished, brilliant finish on these Zildjian cymbals looks fresh and offers excellent, clean stick articulation with controlled overtones. ZBT cymbals take Zildjian Bronze Technology up a notch with advanced hammering and lathing, and enhanced sound for versatility, musicality, and professional performance.

        Believe me for the price you can not beat it.
        Agreed its not a dw custom, but probably the best kit on the low end priced sets. I've owned my accent for ten years and still use it to this day, mainly because i don't have the money to buy a new one, but I will tell you it is a great sounding kit if tuned right. Replace the heads as soon as possible since the stock heads will not last very long. The snare is not the greatest sounding but with new heads, manually taking off and putting the snare back on so its at its tightest, and muffling the sound by adding a piece of foam or even a sock between the bottom and the stand it does have potential. The toms and floor sound great if the sounds are tuned together correctly. This is all up to the performers ear on how high or low pitched he/she likes it. Throw a blanket in the bass drum to muffle the sound and you got yourself and solid sounding kit.

        I cant say anything on the cymbals as when I purchased this set it did not come with them.

        Again, this is not a $3,000 kit so don't expect it to have top of the line material in it. For beginners go with this one, you will not regret it. Overtime you will find the sound you like.

        Overall just a bad drum kit, without the cymbals it should be a 200-350 dollar kit. Don't waste your time, get a Tama Silverstar (all birch shells) and the Zildjian ZBTs.
        It's a very simple kit, but the hardware is terrible. Cymbals are fantastic.
        With wood of an unknown origin, it sounds ok with the right heads and very good tuning. But the Zildjian ZBT cymbal set kicks some serious butt.
        The cymbals are the only thing that makes this buy worth it, the drums have to have good heads and great tuning, and if you're a begginer you really won't find good tuning unless it is tuned by a pro.

            We bought this set for my son to learn. I can tell that it's decent quality and will last well. I'm not a drummer but we wanted something that he can learn on and use later so decided on a full set.

                  I played from age 10 to 21. At 59, I am going back to playing. Like riding a bike. I found these to be an affordable, solid kit. I did not get the Zildjians, I preffer the Sabian. All in all, they are what I expected for what I need. Good sound, versatile, and a whole lot of fun!

                    You will definately want new heads put on. Why would they give you an (x-tra cymbal) but not a cymbal stand?

                    I played this kit yesterday, and it honestly is not worth buying, for anyone. It is sensitive, which is very good. However, when you play it after a while, it's starts to break apart in the next few years. It's not that reliable. I noticed that it hasn't even been owned for 4 years, and the bass drum broke, and everything is dented in, and it's only used for jazz, which requires a real light drumming.

                      I have had this drum set for about 3 years now and honestly i cant say its a bad set. The heads are terrible but i got the Remo Ebony Pinstripe Pro Pack and now it sounds pretty decent. I LOVE the high hats and i would give the crash a 7 or 8. In the beginning the snare was pretty decent but now it rings horribly but that's probably because i don't know how to professionally tune yet. The base is also pretty good so overall for a beginner set you cant go wrong especially for the price.

                              I have owned this drum kit for five years, and must say that I am thoroughly impressed with its tenacity, quality, and tone for a drum kit of this price. All the drums on this kit sound great, but I would suggest switching out the heads that come with the drums with higher-quality ones. (ie. Remo, Evans, etc...). As well as getting better heads, I would also suggest buying better hardware when the time comes, because I have found that some of the pieces deteriorate over time and eventually break. Apart from these small defects, this drum set is very high quality and will last any drummer years.

                                I've had this set for 8 years and haven't had a problem with them. The wrap on the bass drum is slightly loose but still look great. I would recommend this set to someone looking to buy a new set on a budget.

                                Comments about Ludwig Accent Combo with Zildjian ZBT Cymbal Set:

                                dollar for dollar, these are the best drums I've ever owned and I've had three prior sets, but these are the best. Hardware, is solid and so are the heads and the sound. Hi-Hat cymbals could of been larger, instead of 13, they should of been your standard 14".
