Finding a killer kit for under £1,000 is impressive. Getting one with change from £500 is a darn right steal.
Ludwig offered just that this year with the launch of the Breakbeats kit. Designed in conjunction with The Roots’ sticksman Questlove, the diminutive kit was built with ease of transportation in mind, with Questlove wanting a set-up that could easily be shoved in the back of a New York cab on the way to a gig. Don’t worry, it’s also perfect for being lugged into the back of an old Ford KA en route to your local.
We must also doff our hats to the re-launched Pearl Export, which allows drummers to get their hands on an iconic range for sub £700.4 Stars
