Street beats: Questlove teams with Ludwig for busker-friendly drum kit

Drummer, chef, and Roots rocker Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson has announced a new drum kit, produced in partnership with Ludwig, called Breakbeats. The kit is easily broken down and moved, designed for the drummer who might not have a lot of space to practice or perform.

Emphasizing portability (the thing “can fit in a cab,” Thompson says), the kit purports to be a fully functional piece of gear, with snare, tom, floor tom, and bass drum all giving out sound comparable to their larger counterparts. Check it out exclusively at Guitar Center in the USA or any number of dealers overseas.
