OVERVIEW

With the touring player's demands in mind, Ludwig presents the Centennial Series.

Originally created to recognize Ludwig's 100th Anniversary in 2009, Ludwig Centennial Series Drums have been expanded to include three new shell packs in popular, tour-ready configurations. Fusing the warmth and projection of quality North American Maple shells with a choice of six custom sparkle or natural lacquer finishes, the Centennial Series delivers reliabiity and the legendary Ludwig sound in one exceptional package.

The 100% North American Maple Shells are crowned with Vibraband Suspension Rims to ensure supreme resonance, while wearing triple-flanged chrome hoops and redesigned classic lugs. The bass drum features an undrilled design to maintain the natural timbre of the drum. In addition, the die-cast bass drum claws and telescoping spurs ensure a dependable tune and base, respectively.

The Dragster configuration features a 22 x 18" kick drum, 12 x 9" rack tom and 14 x 14" and 16 x 14" floor toms. It's an ideal setup for a pop drummer. With additional component drums available to fit the needs of any playing style, Centennial Series Drums are Ludwig's answer to the working drummer's battle cry.

Snare, cymbals and stands sold separately.

      I am a gigging player that was looking for this type of quality at this type of price point. Great wood, great tone, great design and well made. I put G1 heads on for a bit of a jazz tone to my rock playing and find these very expressive. If you can play you will dig these. Hard to find this quality at this price.

        Comments about Ludwig Centennial Dragster 4-Piece Shell Pack:

        I already gave my review when I first got these drums but after playing out and getting my drumming exercise I have found that these drums sound even better now than at the beginning.I am a rocker and boy do they rock They are a beautiful silver sparkle finish and they project better than any drum set I ever owned even more than dw collectors set .I know that being loud isn't always the answer but the tone and quality of the drums is as important ,but they sound good whether you play soft or loud .I cant imagine what the zeppelin set sounds like .For the money you cant go wrong owning a drum set like this

            Comments about Ludwig Centennial Dragster 4-Piece Shell Pack:

            I recently made the move from one of the newer Gretsch Catalina Club kits (rock config w/ 24" kick) to this Ludwig Centennial Dragster kit in silver sparkle. I'm really happy with it. The shells are quality and have a substantial feel to them. All of the hardware on the drums feels well made.

            The toms are great sizes. I like the 14" depth on the floor toms. I threw some coated G2's over clear G1's on them and they have great tone and projection.

            The kick is awesome. I put an Emad 2 clear batter on it out of the box. I then ported the stock reso head using one of the KickPort T-rings (clear) on the inside of the head for a really clean look (I am not using the kick port with it). Just with this setup, it sounded AMAZING. It has great punch. I did go ahead and put an Evans EQ pad in the bottom with it just touching the reso head.

            The finish on these drums is great and the sparkle looks amazing. I've only had them out a couple of times but I get a lot of compliments on them. It is a lacquer finish, so there are no seams for a very clean finish. I will say though, you will want to take good care of these. This is my second sparkle lacquer finish. During shipping, this one took a bit of a bump in the box and I didn't catch it until the kit was together. I can see where the floor tom mount hit the inside of the kick. On the outside of the drum I now have a spiderweb crack in the lacquer. The good thing with this particular kit is that the sparkle makes it where you can't see it unless you really look hard and the light hits it just right. all that to say, just make sure that your'e taking care and keeping them in good padded bags or cases during transport.

            Overall, these drums don't feel like a mid level kit. The build quality is solid and the materials are great. If you're looking for that classic Ludwig sound at a great price point, this is your kit.

              I read reviews on a couple of sites that said these drums are mid range drums and I have to disagree .I have played some top of the line drum sets over the years and I have to say that these are right up there with the sound and quality. I ordered the silver sparkle dragster set and they project very well with the genuine all American maple shells .Most drummers replace the heads and i probably will to .The wraps also are well done with no seams My question to different dealers is why are these drums not advertised more and promoted .Come and get these drums today for they may not be available much longer

              Comments about Ludwig Centennial Dragster 4-Piece Shell Pack:

              So I've only been playing drums for about 2 1/2 years. When I started I got a cheap little Yamaha 2nd hand kit, figuring that I might completely blow at drums so why get fancy? After playing for a couple years and learning more about drums, I thought I should invest in a semi-serious kit. I found myself playing my floor tom more than my racks with my old kit and wanted two floor toms because it looks cool, and also I thought I'd use 'em. I also didn't want a rack tom attached to the bass drum in any way! So this kit fit the bill nicely.
              When I got the kit, all in the boxes and packed up, I was a little confused (zero instructions!) but got most of it together nicely. The lone, glaring exception was the rack tom. I now know after research it's a Ludwig Vibra-band mount. It fits a little loose, but looking on the internet I think it's supposed to? The rack sounds really good hooked up to the clamp system on my cymbal stand. The toms are awesome.
              I really wish I was a more experienced drummer and could say intelligent stuff. But the drums DO sound very LOUD. The bass drum has the same dimensions as my old Yamaha and I can really hear the difference between birch and maple. It's very awesome and reminded me that this is the smaller version of the Zep kit.
              I got new Remo hydraulic (blue) beater heads for everything on the kit and that recommendation I read elsewhere I think really helps.
