    Not so happy

    By PG

    from NY

    I bought this kit for a small set to play beatles ECT, the only thing I like about it is the color (Green Sparkle) compared to my DW's this kit sounds & plays like a toy, I don't believe at all these are Maple shells,sounds like plywood & basewood, no volume to them. I might buy them for a little kid but I would not pay more than $400 for them! They are repacked & ready to be shipped back for a refund!

    Best Value on the Market - Period

    By Paul-K27AA

    from Austin

    After shopping for a LONG time and talking to every drum store employee in Austin, I purchased this kit in silver sparkle with the 22" kick. My goal was to find a kit for under $1000 that sounded great, was well made, and looked classy. The obvious competitors were the Gretsch Catalina Club Mod Rock, the Pearl Vision Series, the Tama Rockstar, and the OCDP Venice. All the kits had pros and cons, but mostly cons. Once i found this kit, I decided to get it. I reheaded everything and ditched the snare. It's not bad, but a little boxy for me. If you know how to tune drums (most drummers don't), you can make these sound like a million bucks. The finish is amazing as well. These look every bit like high end custom drums. My only complaint is that the bass hoop claws don't have rubber pads so you end up with wood to metal contact. However, none of the kits mentioned above have this feature. If you want a high quality maple kit for a reasonable price tag. Go for these. Also, be aware that the heads that come with it (except the resonant bass head) are TRASH. They are there to hold the kit together until you buy real heads. Don't expect these heads to sound even remotely good.

    Epic

    This kit is a triumph for Ludwig. This is how drum are supposed to be made, basic, powerful but also toneful and incredibly sensitive and detailed when necessary. Beautiful but not too prissy, they are gonna get pounded on after all. so happy to see Ludwig re enter the market in a big way.

    Oh boy!

    By Sammm

    from Texas

    Man i got this kit and it is amazing! i put some evans EC 2's on the toms and they are a bit quiet but they have a deep thick tone. I kept the heads on the kick stock and even still it sounds like a cannon. The snare has a nice crack to it. I love this kit and its greatly priced for it.

    An excellent bare bones working kit

    By Barebones

    from Dallas

    The Green Sparkle finish is excellent. Not a blemish on any of the drums. The snare pops, the toms boom, and after hearing the bass drum, you'll know what it means when someone says "it sounds like a cannon". The stock heads are okay. I soon replaced them with Coated Ambassadors, with a Power Stroke on the bass (wooden beater adds the final touch to the bass). And when the stage lights hit that laquer sparkle...pretty darn cool.

    Nice Ludwig quality

    By DGray65

    from NC

    This is a very nice Ludwig kit. I have the natural laquer finish and I must say it is a beautiful finish. Great maple sound at an affordable price. Several different sized component drums make for many kit configurations. Well worth the money.
