OVERVIEW

A vintage series built on a 7-ply foundation of North American maple.

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.

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 3-Piece Shell Pack with 20" Bass Drum:

These Ludwig Classic Maple drums are some of the best I've played. I moved away to Yamaha and Mapex over the years but have since come back to playing Ludwig's with my jazz trio. These will do anything, rock, R&B, etc.. Hand made thin shells are easily tunable, fit and finish is perfect, and the Atlas hardware is very, very nice. I expected to replace the heads right away but the factory heads are great and on par if not better than REMO Ambassador's. Very nice response in the 12, 14, 20 configuration. And the classic Ludwig badge in old horn brass is a really cool touch!
