Gearank Recommendation

The LJR106 was on our recommended list for Junior Drum Sets for 3 consecutive editions from January 2017 until October 2020.


Ludwig is the biggest brand included in this guide and their full-sized professional kits are endorsed by numerous successful and well-known drummers.

Although more expensive than some of its competitors, this drum set comes with higher quality hardware.

This kit received slightly lower ratings than some cheaper options seemingly because Ludwig appears to have been held to a much higher standard than those lesser-known brands.
