Featuring a compact 14x16-inch bass drum on a riser, a 13" by 13" floor tom, a 7" by 10" tom, and a 5" by 14" matching wood snare drum, this grooving kit packs the punch and flow of Questlove's style and sophistication. Each drum is comprised of a 7-ply hardwood shell and is designed for drummers who are often on-the-go. Be it a club, your basement, or even the street, this compact kit will fit just about anywhere, ready to kick out the jams in just about any setting.

Compact Design with Mobility in Mind

According to Roots drummer Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, "I wanted to build a device that was apartment-friendly and compact for the street musician; but also something that was quality-sounding. A gritty, raw, 'breakable' kit for gigging in clubs that you can fit in a cab. Breakbeats by Questlove does it all." Your LC179X Breakbeats Questlove kit comes with a compact 14" by 16" kick drum that's easy to set up, tear down, pack up, and move with ease and quickness. You won't find many drum kits that fit snugly into your car the way this kit does.

A Small Kit That Still Brings the Boom

The ease of mobility of your toms, kick drum, and snare drum due to their compact size doesn't mean you're going to have to sacrifice any low-end push. Each drum features a 7-ply hardwood shell that captures the impact of each hit and resonates a nice, warm, and read more well-bodied tone -- a confident sound that breaks through with intensity and assured conviction. Whether you're playing a funk groove, a soul beat, or an uptempo pop/rock feel, you can count on this kit delivering the goods.

Protective Velvet Storage Bags

Your LC179X Breakbeats Questlove kit comes with protective velvet storage bags to protect your drums from dust, moisture, and the various battle scars associated with a traveling drummer. You can also drape your bags over your drums to instantly change the volume and tone of each hit. The bearing edges of each drum are cut to a 45 degree angle within 1/16" from each outside edge. Smooth, even, and consistently fat heads keep your kit sounding punchy, loud, and tuned for any kind of groove your heart desires to play.

"Great kit!"

The kit is amazing. Great sound for such small sizes. The kick drum "ringed" a lot...so I had to put a small blanket in and get a softer beater to give it more of a "thud". The stock drum sound really good, but the snare is already starting to wear after a month of periodic use. I got the white sparkle kit, but it is more silver than white...which is a slight disappointment. As for zZounds.com...I received the kit 3 days after placing my order!
