The Ludwig Accent is a decent entry level kit. Ludwig is one of the most notable drum companies with a strong track record of great kits and famous drummers who played them. It is safe to say that they will never put out a bad product. That being said, the Ludwig Accent is most definitely one of their lower end products. An extremely common kit, I have played on multiple Accent setups with the stock hardware. In my opinion, this drum kit has a good value. There are some entry level kits that are better, such as the Yamaha Rydeen or the Gretsch Catalina Birch, but there are others that are a lot worse.
There are different sizes this kit is offered in, but in general I feel like the toms and bass drum are large. Even the snare drum is a few inches deeper than most entry level snares. Some people may find this appealing, but I think it is a little overambitious. The sheer size makes this kit slightly less versatile and the toms are more difficult to tune. The drums do produce an excellent volume, as well as having characteristics best suited to rock music. The juniper and mahogany shells are pretty deep and have decently warm character. The tom mounts and lugs were typical low end material, not good but not bad.
The hi hat stand, bass drum pedal and cymbal stand that come with the kid are decent. The bass drum pedal especially is pretty comfortable and responsive, though I have a soft spot for low end pedals. The cymbal stands are adequate but could be sturdier.
Of course, it is difficult to be critical of an entry level drumkit such as this. The Ludwig Accent does not disappoint. It is not my favorite, but it is still very good and it offers an excellent value. To a great extent, it is all up to personal preference. People who invest in the Ludwig Accent will not regret it.
I use since September 2011 Nothing to say, chrome and paint qualities are nothing moves, it's LUDWIG!
Sounds to adjust according to your taste! .. And the type of music! ..
Purchased after having sold my electronic drum!
Touched unrelated .. there's no picture!
BASS DRUM 20 "! ... For reasons of space in the car is very suitable for room 250 ... beyond that, the rooms are often with sound that does not interfere.
Comes with cymbals produced in Canada by SABIAN not pros but correct. Remo skins I'll replace them with hydro EVANS,
for a more "groove" but it is a choice, nothing to do with the quality of material.
Resale assuredly LUDWIG has nothing to prove!

I used to scne rpt and a 22x18-16x16-MODEL 13x11 Ambr colors.
The advantage is first of all make, Ludwig is unique compared to traditional and other Premier Pearl Export beginners class that three quarters of young drummers want s'offir.
Say anything at the finish, beautiful color. Small BMOL: I think the chrome do not take too much time ...
The shells are Russian, the ties do not block at all.
The ball and arm toms are nice and solid.
SHADOWS ON THE ROLL:
First of spades bass drum. If I bought this kit, I would change on the pikes to install traditional (type Gibraltar Basic) These original, in an arc are Crant pnibles rgler and do not take up . Once blocked background, the bass drum moves and sways ... Not cool.
Second BMOL: the bass drum pedals! I have not understood, it is silent saying good-quality (for that price!) And the hi-hat, but the tension spring balance in full lch me! The shop where I had assured me lou lou as not to have 2-3 times drummers jazzeux I t surprised by this weakness. It's been 15 years I ke the drumkit, and I had never broken spring, especially not after 4 kick ... Too bad, if it is a good small drumkit. And the sound is round and powerful desire! I'm a fan, shame about the pedals and the peaks, but can be fixed for cheap!

I have this drumkit for 1 year now, I was a little disappointed at first. But after some time I managed to find a good sound. This is a really nice drumkit for the price. I just had the same problem, in full rehearsal, the spring broke while I was playing, it is the only small downside.
But for the price, it is really good.
