Ludwig

Description

Part of the reimagined Classic Oak drum series, this Ludwig Downbeat 3-piece shell pack lives up to the timeless Ludwig name with high-end construction and dark, aggressive sound. The shell consists of a 3-ply core of North American Maple, surrounded by single inner and outer plies of American Red Oak. The total of 5 wood plies keeps the shells thin at 6.5 mm, increasing the dark resonance and speeding up the decay for clear articulation on every stroke. Shells are cut to dual 45-degree bearing edges.

This "Downbeat" configuration features a rack tom, floor tom and bass drum in fusion sizes, especially good for situations that reward subtlety and precision. Cymbals, snare drum and hardware are not included with this high-end professional shell pack.

No matter the genre, Ludwig Classic Oak gives drummers a more powerful voice in the mix. Proudly made in Monroe, North Carolina, USA.
