What We Think

If you’re a gigging drummer, a few of the qualities you need to possess include flexibility and versatility, not only in your playing but also the gear you play. I’m of the opinion that every working drummer needs an inexpensive, small-footprint kit for those small club and cafe gigs where a 22” bass drum is just too much. Designed by Questlove with street and cafe drummers in mind, Ludwig’s Breakbeats drums are the perfect option. 

Constructed from poplar, these drums sound warm and musical with a softer attack and projection that provides more than enough sound for small venues. Anchored by a 16” bass drum, this kit takes up a very small amount of space. Setup, breakdown, and transport are a breeze as these drums come with their own carry bags, perfect for the city drummer on the go. Round out your gear collection with the Ludwig Breakbeats and never sweat playing small gigs again. 


Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig


The tonal center of Breakbeats is a 5x14" matching wood snare drum. Create beats on the fly and make your voice heard at gigs, on the street, or in rehearsal.


Fitted withRemoheads, Breakbeats' 7-ply hardwood shells play like a full-sized kit; fusing low-end kick punch with focused tom and snare midrange.



Packable, stackable, and portable, Breakbeats' compact size and included velvet storage bags make it ideal for the drummer on the move. Play it wide open or instantly change volume and tone by draping each bag over each drum.


About Manufacturer

Touted as “the most famous name on drums,” Ludwig stands today as one of the most legendary and revered American drum manufacturers of all time. Founded in 1909 under the name Ludwig & Ludwig, the company has existed under a number of different owners and names, with the Ludwig brand operating today as a subsidiary of Conn-Selmer. Throughout almost 110 years of change, one thing has remained constant: Ludwig’s dedication to building high-quality drums with that signature Ludwig tone. Over the years, Ludwig drums have laid down solid backbeats and infectious grooves at the hands of drummers like John Densmore, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, and of course, Ringo Starr. Their iconic kits from the 60s and 70s remain highly coveted by collectors and players alike, but their new offerings continue to uphold the legendary Ludwig name just the same.
