In a limited collaboration with a true drumming and hip hop pioneer, Ludwig Drum Co. proudly presents Breakbeats by Questlove; a drum set designed by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. Created for sonic punch, portability, and versatility for the urban pro, the mobile DJ, and even the aspiring drummer, Breakbeat’s 16 x 14″ bass drum, 13 x 13″ floor tom, and 10 x 7″ tom not only fit into tight places, but break down quickly and easily. Use the bass drum lift to get the kit to full-size playable height, or leave it off for easy playability by younger thumpers.
Available in Azure Sparkle with a matching 14 x 5″ snare for cracking projection, the Breakbeat by Questlove has a footprint that is original as the legend that created it.
MAKE IT FIT: Breakbeats was designed with the city in mind. Positioned on a riser for optimum reach, its compact 14×16″ bass drum, 7×10″ tom, and 13×13″ floor tom creates a set-up for sculpting grooves in tight spaces.
BREAK IT DOWN: The tonal center of Breakbeats is a 5×14″ matching wood snare drum. Create beats on the fly and make your voice heard at gigs, on the street, or in rehearsal.
DIAL IT IN: Fitted with Remo heads, Breakbeats’ 7-ply hardwood shells play like a full-sized kit; fusing low-end kick punch with focused tom and snare midrange.
PACK IT UP: 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.
