In 2016, Ludwig introduced the Element Evolution drum kits. The Evolution Series were designed as an intermediate drum set, one an aspiring drummer needs to succeed. These Evolution Series are available with double braced hardware and Zildjian Cymbals. (Evolution Drums Set ships with Zildjian ZBT Cymbal Pack in USA and Canada only)
At the NAMM Show 2017 Ludwig showed their upgraded version called the 'Evolution Maple'. The lacquer finished North American maple shells, the 45 degree bearing edges, the triple flange hoops and the Remo batter heads gives it the Pro Level upgrade while this 6-piece shell pack remains really affordable. With four finishes available, Ludwig makes sure you can choose what fits you best in color and style. The video and all the details of the new kit are in the article on Drummerszone.com.
