Ludwig LC179XX Breakbeats by Questlove Compact Drum Shell Kit, 4-Piece

Take your drums anywhere with Ludwig's Breakbeats. Designed with help from Questlove, this shell kit is perfect for drummers without a lot of room to spare.
"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, 'break-able' kit for gigging in clubs that you can fit in a cab. Breakbeats by Questlove does it all."
- Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson (The Roots)

It features Remo Pinstripe heads for pro-level tones, and comes with a multi-purpose bags for easy transport, and drum muting. The Breakbeats kit is available in White Sparkle, Black Sparkle, and Red Sparkle.
