OVERVIEW

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, straight 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.

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!

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.

good sounding kit

By david russo

from jersey

Comments about Ludwig Accent Series Complete Drum Set:

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.

Old drummer gets new Ludwig set.

By Chocolate

from Batesville, ark

Comments about Ludwig Accent Series Complete Drum Set:

Overall, I made a great purchase, and would recommend this set to anyone.
I had a set of Ludwig drums back in the 60"s and I've wanted another set for a long time. I'm very happy with this new set and how they sound. Brings back good memories.
The shells and hard ware will last me a long time. I like the tone.
I've been looking for some time and price and value were what I have been looking for.

Good for early begginners, BAD for intermediates/mid. Begginers

By Asia C

from TX, leander

See all my reviews

Comments about Ludwig Accent Series Complete Drum Set:

Overall This kit isnt it's best. I would not reccommend it to anyone. It has weird sounds. ZBT cymbals it comes with arent the best either. Mine Crash cracked within 2 weeks. I would rather go out and buy a higher-end sounding kit.
The features it has is OK I mean the blue is nice and the hardware and all....
I hate to see drummers waste there money on kits like these. You can go and get a better higher-end sounding kit for the same price of this kit! So I would reccomend going out and buying a Pearl, Mapex, or any other Ludwig kit just not the accent! But this kit has some Pros, It's good for EARLY begginners like kids 4-9. Do NOT buy this kit if your a Intermediate or Mid Begginner, Its not worth it.

      Comments about Ludwig Accent Series Complete Drum Set:

      My 10 yr. old son saved his money and bought this set. It is a great set of drums. We put the set together the same day it came in, and it was very easy to set-up. Even though I have not touched drums in years, I was able to goof-around and play on these; this is not a set just for kids. My son will be able to learn and play as long as he wants on this set. I highly recommend this as a complete set.

      Good Beginner set set

      By Jack Taggart

      from Nelson County, Virginia

      Comments about Ludwig Accent Series Complete Drum Set:

      Nice drum set. The snare that came with it was pretty crappy. That was okay because I had a good snare. I put a pillow in the bass to supress it, because it rung. This is a good set for beginners. If you do this extremely frequently, you probably want a more advanced set. All and all worth the money.

      Good Kit

      By Mark Holloway

      from Tennessee

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Ludwig Accent Series Complete Drum Set:

      What can i say this thing rocks! sure its not a DW or a Tama! For the price what do you expect? If you are just starting playing the drums and are sorta not sure what to get, this wouldn't be a bad choice! I've not played Pearl or PDP lower cost drums but sure there great but I HAVE played these and know that there all ya need for the first couple years of playing. People go on about hardware, hardwares fine. You do get an extra cymbal and no stand for it but i ordered a sabian sbr ride recently and its been about a year since ive had the kit now and ordered the sound percusion double pack of boom cymbal stands. Completes the set! so down the road you could add on bout the pedal is fine, hi hat stand is fine, and snare stand is fine, throne is a little wobley but gets the job done, and the cymbal stand that came with its a winner to! One thing i recomend off the bat, get RTOM moon gels!!!! Stock heads are below decent, remo rock pack thats got the bass drum head and snare, and toms is a good fixer for the sound of the drums, but thats after you wear the stock ones out so dont worry about those yet just be sure to order the Moon gels!
      In a nut shell don't order anything extra but a pair of sticks and rtom moon gels and worry about ordering the other stuff later because it will work for a year i know that is if you dont beat it around.
      Basic stuff from this cheap of a set you can't exspect what you would get from a DW
      Nice quality I think anyways! Not just any junk in the finish looks nice, i recomend blue it looks really good thats the color i got especially if you like blue!
      The value of this set is amazing, I say if your wantin to get it just get it! it will last a long time and its alot of fun cant go wrong with a set of drums!

          Comments about Ludwig Accent Series Complete Drum Set:

          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 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 had no prior experience assembling a drum set. There were no instructions but after unpacking the boxes and sorting everything out... well, it's pretty easy to figure out.

                      I also bought him a pair of Vick Firth drummers ear protection!

                      This is and okay set, but great for beginners. This was my first set and I had a blast playing it. It's not the best sounding kit, and if you are looking for your second or third kit, this is not for you, but I recommend for beginners.

                          I have owned this set for a few days now and I have to say I am very pleased with quality and responsiveness. The ZBT cymbals are good for starting out though I don't know why there isn't a stand for the Third cymbal.

                          I am using this set for home recordings and a small alternative band that I am in. Great sound for these uses so far.

                          The stock heads are poor. Lots of reverb and I am not to impressed in the sound. But that is okay considering the value of the set.

                          I would suggest Evans double pin stripe to replace the stock skins with. Really preserves the sound without taking away from the boom that this kit gives.

                          Great set overall. Will be using it for a very long time.

                              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 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.

                                Very nice set. Only cons are no stand for the 14" crash, and no directions for putting it together. I found a good tutorial on the Ludwig website though, and it showed me how. It's been many years since I've had my own set, so the tuning is an ongoing learning experience. But overall, I am very very happy with the set.
