      Ludwig Keystone 4-Piece Drum Shell Pack (713118)
Availability:  


A modern twist on a century of custom American drum making.

The Ludwig Keystone 4-piece drum shell pack includes a 22" x 18" kick, 10" x 8" and 12" x 9" rack toms, and a 16" x 16" floor tom.

Traditionally, the Ludwig Sound has run the gamut between the low tonal warmth of the Legacy drum shell, and the resonant mid-range qualities of Classic Maple. As musical tastes and styles have evolved, however, a growing segment of the drumming community sees the need for a louder alternative. With this need in mind, Ludwig's team of engineers and craftsmen went back to square one with one goal in mind: a completely new drum shell for today's Ludwig Drummer.

The latest creation from Ludwig USA's Monroe facility, Keystone Series Drums have the distinction of a more focused tonality. The 3-ply maple core used in their Classic Maple drums is augmented with 1/16" inner- and outer-plies of American red oak. This 5-ply combination creates a thin, dense drum shell that speaks loudly with quick, even decay. In order to draw further resonance from this unique hybrid, the dual 45° bearing edge is pulled to the center of the shell to seat perfectly into the head.

The end result is a Ludwig drum shell that produces solid, authoritative tone with high power and attack. For the live music drummer, a perfect balance between high-volume cut and subtle articulation is achieved. The Ludwig Keystone Series is made under the same strict quality and structural standards as Classic Maple and Legacy drums, putting a modern twist on a century of custom American drum making.

The namesake of Ludwig's legendary icon, Keystone Series drums feature the new low-contact Keystone lug and mounting bracket for a dramatic look and feel.

Hardware and cymbals sold separately.

    As reviewed by thomas tate on 12/9/2013

    I bought the Mint Oyster Glass kit on the web, never having touched a sinle one because I was so enamored with the wrap finish. Mine is the 24x14 bass, 13x9, 16x16,18x16 shell pack. When they arrived I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. I personally do not have a problem with the wrap. In fact I LOVE this finish. I get tons of compliments at gigs and from other musicians, drummers too on the beauty of these drums. They sound fabulous. Nice and punchy, with nice decay and a wide open sound. I did have a couple minor issues. The wrap seams aren't all that unnoticeable due to the thickness of the material, but as long as they are set up badges out, I'm the only one that sees that. Also, the rubber tips on the floor tom legs started falling off after a few trips out. Nothing a little epoxy didn't cure though.I had a bit of trouble getting the Vibraband tom holder to fit properly on the mounted 13x9. These are minor issues, considering the value of these drums. They are just as good as any I have ever played, that says alot since I have played hundreds of drums in my 40 years of playing. At under $2000.00 these drums are a seriously great investment.

  • Ludwig Keystone Drums

    As reviewed by BILL WAGONER on 12/24/2013

    I bought a Ludwig Keystone kit a little over a year ago. What I have is a 24" Bass, 13" Rack Tom, 16" and 18" Floor Toms and a matching 6x14" snare in Deep Blue Glass Glitter. This is the first Ludwig kit I have owned since the late 70's. I was (and still am) a big fan of Pearl Drums (I also own a Pearl Master's Series Mahogany Classic Kit). The sound this kit offers is truly a thing of beauty! Oak/Maple combo shells really sound awesome! Easy to tune in ANY range, superb bearing edges, beautiful finish, exceptional chrome quality! VERY pleased by Ludwig's commitment to quality AND they are MADE IN THE USA!!!!

  • Good Variation On A Theme

    As reviewed by Kevin McGovern on 3/1/2012

    Got a chance to whack on these in a local store yesterday and while I still deplore Ludwig's current marketing in general, this kit did have a unique new sound for the brand. The oak/maple shell design is indeed deep and solid with a somewhat more defined attack than Yamaha Oak Customs and maybe a bit longer decay. The drums all sound big and the quality is there. I don't particularly care for the new lugs they use on these cosmetically and the green mint oyster wrap sucketh mightily. If I could get a set in White Marine Pearl and Classic lugs, I could love these drums. Might be possible via a $pecial order... Still, for the Big Band or Death Metal drummer who needs a big sound and doesn't want to roam the earth dragging a big, honking, square size kit behind, these are a great idea!
