Starting in the early 1900’s with the invention of the very first bass drum pedal and then moving on to Timpani, Ludwig quickly became a leading name in drums. It wasn’t until the 1920’s when they introduced the famous Black Beauty Snare Drum which became one of the most sought after snare drums in the recording industry. Drummers such as Ringo Starr and John Bonham were often found behind Ludwig drum kits.
Despite their reputation as high end manufacturers of drums, Ludwig do offer some ranges that are more affordable for the casual hobby drummer or the beginner. The Ludwig Pocket kit was designed by The Roots drummer Questlove as well as the Breakbeats kit. The Pocket kit was developed to suit young drummers aged 4-10 years old, featuring smaller sizes but still boasting high quality drums and durable hardware. This package includes everything you need as a new drummer; with cymbals, stands, stool, sticks, and kick pedal all in one box.
For those that pick up the drums at a young age, it can be a frustrating and disheartening experience playing on kits that are too big for them or playing on toy drum kits that are the right size but sound terrible and fall to pieces. The Ludwig Pocket kit offers reliable a solution to these problems whilst sounding good enough to have the Ludwig badge on it, despite being aimed at 4-10 year olds.
The Ludwig Jr Kit is a similar idea but recommended for players from 1-5.
