Great Deal-Good Quality

Comments about Ludwig Element Evolution 5-Piece Drum Set:

Bought this kit for church. The hardware pack is good quality, cymbals have a nice bright sound and heads are better than most complete kits with double layer remos. Snare sounds fantastic with just slight tuning. I'm still working to get the right sound out of the toms, which is always to be expected no matter what in my experience.

Bass pedal is the only thing I don't like so far. It is not as good as the Tama Cobra 200 that comes with the imperial star; however since tgisbkit comes with ziljian cymbals and the drum stool, it gives Tama a run for their money.

    Comments about Ludwig Element Evolution 5-Piece Drum Set:

    I am getting back into playing and needed a kit. A full kit including cymbals is outstanding. The toms sound great. The floor tom is a little off, but I think I can dial it in. The throne is my only complaint. I had to upgrade to a better throne. There is no padding and it is like sitting on concrete. After about thirty minutes my back started to tighten up.
