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 Zep configuration features the fabled 26 x 14" kick drum, 14 x 10" rack tom and 16 x 16" and 18 x 16" floor toms. Simply put - this shell pack is heavy machinery for a rock drummer who wants to bring the thunder. 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.

        Comments about Ludwig Centennial Zep 4-Piece Shell Pack:

        This is an amazing drum kit from Ludwig. It delivers the closest thing to John Bonham's legendary sound. The stock heads are decent, and will make do. If it's tuned up right, the bass drum has got the same wailing thump as John Bonham's. The toms are a little to full of overtones, but Remo muffls fix that problem and make them sound great. It's built like a tank. It's taken a beating for the short time that I have owned it and it's held up surprisingly well. The natural finish looks absolutely stunning and has a great shine under any light. Personally, the natural is the best finish option. This kit also sounds wonderful in the studio. I've recorded a few tracks using my Audio Technica MBDK6 drum mic pack, and this kit sounds stellar. The floor toms deliver great low response and deliver that low rumble that you always look for in big floor toms. The stock heads are actually quite good - If you tune them right. They sound pretty bad if you don't. They've got great attack, and a warm response. If you pair this kit up with the John Bonham cymbal pack also sold here on musicians friend, you don't get much closer to a true John Bonham sound with this kit.

          Comments about Ludwig Centennial Zep 4-Piece Shell Pack:

          I am really liking this kit. Sounds great. The guys in my band love the sound too. I especially like the big 26" kick drum. It's got a nice boom to it but doesn't sound like a timpani. I think you could play any kind of music with this kit. They are very responsive. It also helps that they look good too. I purchased the mahogany burst finish and think they're beautiful. I didn't use the stock batter heads, so I don't know about those. I put some Remos of my choice on them right out of the box. I don't regret getting these at all. I should've done it much sooner. These are definitely what I was looking for.

          The fit and finish of these drums are excellent. They have a huge sound presence, many times i dont have to Mic the set at all. they pick up from the other mics to give a good balanced sound. My bandmates love the look and the sound.

          Comments about Ludwig Centennial Zep 4-Piece Shell Pack:

          This was a purchase I was anticipating for years and am very proud I can finally say I own it. phenomenal kit sounds great with stock heads but I would recommend getting some new ones that fit your style. I got mine in the natural finish and it is beautifully finished on solid north American maple with a gloss that really shines under stage lights. I would definitely use this in the studio and on stage because its gives a sound that is very original and really kicks your butt to listen to. Overall I am extremely happy with purchase and will definitely keep Ludwig in mind on future purchases. I would just like to see it made in the USA. I would also recommend getting some sort of dampening like Evans Emad or Remo powerstroke, or felt strips, muffling pillow or even just a blanket for the bass.
