Discontinued Ludwig Accent Drive 22″ 5 Piece Starter Drum Kit – Silver Foil


Need some help choosing a starter drum kit? Take a look at our Beginner Drum Kit Shopping Guide – How to choose a beginner drum kit for an overview of what is available and tips on what to look out for when making that all important first purchase.


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. Accent starter kits come with everything you need to get playing including a cymbal stand, kick pedal, drum stool and hi hat and crash cymbal. They are available in Silver, Black or Red.

Accent is the cheapest way you can start playing full size Ludwig drums but are an expensive option as a starter kit. The Mapex Tornado is almost half the price and has some better features such as ball mounted rack toms. At this price bracket you are almost into the range of Yamaha Rydeen, Pearl Export and Gretsch Energy kits which all come with upgraded cymbal packs and an extra cymbal stand. However choosing a drum kit isn’t always a rational choice and if you just want to own a Ludwig without breaking the bank, this is the kit for you.

This kit is finished in a Silver Foil wrap.
