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.

        Comments about Ludwig Element Evolution 5-Piece Drum Set:

        I purchased this kit for a beginning drummer. I was impressed that this kit is complete right out of the box. The kit comes complete with Excellent Hardware, A Drum Throne, Zildjian ZBT Cymbals and Ludwig Drum Heads that are manufactured by Remo. The only thing you need is a pair of sticks and your ready to go. As with all drum kits tuning is essential. So if you take your time and tune this kit properly you will be surprised at how good they sound. The only addition I made to the kit was a set of Remo Rings to flatten the ringing overtones on each of the drums in the kit. Once the rings were added the kit sounds exceptionally good.
