Overview

Preferred by professionals for its tonal versatility, Ludwig Classic Maple drums offer high sensitivity, wide dynamic tuning range, and sharp attack make it them an ideal choice for live performance. Hand-crafted at Ludwig's manufacturing facility in Monroe, North Carolina, Classic Maple's 7-ply shell is crafted to respond to the player and environment for any playing style or preference.

Classic Maple's standard 7-ply, 6mm shell is formulated for optimum resonance and tonality. Its center three-ply core panel (laminated in a horizontal/vertical/horizontal grain bond to a 2.4mm thickness,) is inserted between inner and outer two-ply panels through a proprietary Radio Frequency Shell Technology (R.F.S.T.) molding process. Each drum's bearing edge is cut to a 45-degree angle within 1/16" from the outside edge. This edge is hand-sanded to the craftsman's touch to assure a smooth, even, flat surface for easy head seating; the final touch to complete the unmistakable Ludwig Sound.

To increase stability through out the drum, all Ludwig USA shells are produced using a process involving their original bladder molds, R.F.S.T.'s unique bonding system -combined with a specialized, time-tested adhesive- cures each shell evenly over the entire surface of the shell. This process is truly a principal ingredient in creating the "Ludwig Sound" in every shell they make.

These drums are fitted with Ludwig's renowned Mini-Classic Lugs, suspended A.T.L.A.S Mounts and undrilled virgin bass drum for optimum resonance, Elite Spurs for a stable low-end and Cast Brass Badges. Snare, cymbals and hardware sold separately.

These drums punch

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 4-Piece Shell Pack:

I bought 2 of these kits in the early part of 2014 and I could not be happier with my purchase. I special ordered them one in walnut lacquer and the other in natural lacquer. I also play Yamaha oak and recording custom kits and was looking for a good maple kit. These drums are fantastic and they work well in any musical situation I can throw at them. The toms have great tone and beautiful resonance and the kick drums are some of the best I have ever played. The build quality on these kits is second to none and the finishes are flawless as well. If you are looking for a great sounding USA made drum kit that won't destroy your bank account, give these guys a serious look. I was looking at DW and the Luddies stole the show
