Quality Starter Kit

By 

from Edison, NJ

Staff Reviewer

The Ludwig Evultion kit is a great starter kit for anyone looking to get started on drums. This kit comes with everything. Drums, Cymbals, Hardware, and even a drum throne which very few kits come with. Best part is that not only does it come with cymbals but they are quality Zildjian cymbals and not no name brand ones. You won't go wrong with this set.

Great Upgrade kit!

By 

from Edison, NJ

Staff Reviewer

A lot of detail and attention has been taken into the manufacturing of this kit and it shows in all aspects of construction and playability. What I found most surprising about this kit was the quality of the hardware included. It seems sometimes that drum hardware can be an after thought if it is included in kits but that does not seem to be the case with this kit. The cymbal stands are double-braced as well for added durability. This is a very versatile kit too for someone who has yet to find their setup, or for the musician looking to change styles as Ludwig gives you the option to set-up with a double bass pedal or not. The kit also includes a great set of Zildjian ZBT cymbals. So, with three configurations to choose from, ultra-durable hardware, great cymbals and a beautiful finish, this kit could not be any easier to purchase.

      Great intermediate kit!

      By 

      from Cleveland, OH

      In 4 gorgeous wraps, the Evolution Maple by Ludwig is an amazing deal of an beginner/intermediate kit. Outfitted with Remo Pinstripe heads and accompanied by their classic micro lugs, this kit has a retro vibe that you cant always find in this day and age. The maple shells offer a very smooth even tone, versatile enough to jump between genres for those that enjoy many different styles of drumming. I highly recommend this kit to the beginner that is starting from scratch. Along with the amazing shell pack, a ZBT and hardware pack is included. ZBTs being classic and reliable cymbals from the worlds oldest cymbal company and sturdy double braced hardware by Ludwig add up to an amazing package deal that is equaled by no other.

      LUDWIG DOES IT AGAIN!

      By

      Staff Reviewer

      Pros

      • Cymbals/Hardware included
      • Great Drumheads
      • Great Price

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Can be Used for many styles
        • Gigging
        • Practice

        If you are just getting started, or coming back from a 20 year break of playing drums, this is a great kit for the price! This kit includes all double braced hardware, and Zildjian cymbals! It really gets you going from the start. I love the 2 ply Pin Strip heads that come with the kit, along with the Wood Bass hoop. I can practice or even play out at my local venue with this kit. With care and proper maintenance this kit can last a the drummer a very longtime! The price point is half of what it would cost to buy the Shells(Drums), Cymbals, Hardware, and Seat, great package deal! This is a product review by Rocky at Sam Ash #57-Indianapolis, IN.

        Fantastic practice set or first drumkit

        By 

        from Cincinnati, OH

        Staff Reviewer

        For many people Ludwig is a household name since Ringo showed off his black oyster pearl kit on the Ed Sullivan back in the 60's. The Ludwig Brand has been around for over a hundred years making drums. The Element Evolution outfit gives you everything you need to get started drumming and can also make a fanastic value for a practice kit for a seasoned player looking for a deal. You start with a 5 piece shell set constructed of poplar wood a tonewood that's been in drum making for many decades which gives you an even ended punchy tone. Unlike a lot of kits in it's class Ludwig gives you a set of Remo UT Pinstripes for your toms, a Powerstroke 3 style kick head, and a Coated Ambassador snare head making it easier to get great tone and feel. You get a full set of double braced hardware including the throne, so at least to get started you don't have any hidden additional costs like with some low end kits and most importantly you know it's built to last. For cymbals you get a set of Zildjian ZBT cymbals which are a great entry level cymbal and again a pretty big step up from a lot of the cymbals bundled with low end starter kits. The Red, Blue, and Black Sparkle finishes are durable and have a great retro appeal. So again if you're shopping for your first drumkit this is a great option, if you're a seasoned player looking for a deal on a good practice kit again a fantastic option.
