A modern twist on a century of custom American drum making.
This Ludwig Keystone 4-Piece drum shell pack includes a 24" x 14" kick, 13" x 9" rack tom, and 16" x 16" and 18" x 16" floor toms.
Traditionally, the Ludwig Sound has run the gamut between the low tonal warmth of the Legacy drum shell, and the resonant mid-range qualities of Classic Maple. As musical tastes and styles have evolved, however, a growing segment of the drumming community sees the need for a louder alternative. With this need in mind, Ludwig's team of engineers and craftsmen went back to square one with one goal in mind: a completely new Ludwig drum shell for today's Ludwig Drummer.
The latest creation from Ludwig USA's Monroe facility, Keystone Series Drums have the distinction of a more focused tonality. The 3-ply maple core used in their Classic Maple drums is augmented with 1/16" inner- and outer-plies of American Red Oak. This 5-ply combination creates a thin, dense drum shell that speaks loudly with quick, even decay. In order to draw further resonance from this unique hybrid, the dual 45Â° bearing edge is pulled to the center of the drum shell to seat perfectly into the head.
The end result is a Ludwig drum shell that produces solid, authoritative tone with high power and attack. For the live music drummer, a perfect balance between high-volume cut and subtle articulation is achieved. The Keystone Series is made under the same strict quality and structural standards as Classic Maple and Legacy drums, putting a modern twist on a century of custom American drum making.
The namesake of Ludwig's legendary icon, Keystone Series drums feature the low-contact Keystone lug and mounting bracket for a dramatic look and feel.
Hardware and cymbals sold separately.
The classic Ludwig sound is updated for today's drummers.

Comments about Ludwig Keystone 4-Piece Rock Drum Shell Pack:
great value for the money, i would expect to pay way more for the sound these get
i bought this set about 8 months ago, it is fantastic! the style of music i play is pretty heavy rock and roll, i needed something that could produce at loud volumes, and this set was perfect!
i've been a ludwig fan for years, i have a few old 60's maple sets that sound awesome, and this new keystone set sounds just as good if not better
over all i think this set is great, the only reason i gave it a 9 instead of 10 is because of the heads, it comes with evans g2 heads, i prefer remo emperors, the evans sound to muffled for me
