This is a single custom-built, American-made tom from the Ludwig Legacy Classic series, which is based on a modern rethinking of the legendary reinforced 3-ply Ludwig drum shells that set the standard for popular music throughout the 20th Century.
Incorporating many of the same methods used throughout its long and illustrious history, Ludwig's exclusive Legacy Classic shells are made in-house from the choicest cuts of hand-selected North American hardwoods. At its core is a single 1/8" ply of premium poplar for unyielding warmth and resonance. Inner and outer plies of 1/16" premium-grade North American maple are then cross-laminated to the core to reproduce that magical balance of power and clarity for the modern era. This proven design is then augmented with 1/4" single-ply maple reinforcement hoops, and rounded, classic-cut bearing edges for thundering lows and pronounced cut-through in any musical situation. The attractive maple outer shell is then treated in durable lacquer finishes. All Legacy Classic drums also feature Ludwig's Classic mini-lugs and traditional "Keystone" badges.
But Legacy Classic is not merely a blast from the past. This drum is created through state-of-the-art manufacturing, careful quality control, and a host of upgrades and innovations developed through Ludwig's considerable experience and expertise in crafting drums. For the discriminating professional, serious part-time player, and vintage and contemporary collector alike, Legacy Classic is among the best of today, yesterday, and tomorrow.
Legendary looks, state-of-the-art design. Add a classic to your kit.

Comments about Ludwig Legacy Classic Lacquer Tom Drum:
I have been playing Yamaha PHX drums for just under two years and was convinced there was no better sounding drums out there. 40 plus years of playing had made me more than just a little bit picky. These new Ludwig Legacy drums are exactly what the other companies have been trying to create. I have no idea how they do it, but like thier seamless metal snare drums that the other companies have copied down to the finest detail,including the degrees of rollover bend on the bearing edges, they just simply cant be touched! Its also great to see an American Company leading the pack once again. They must have a Devine Wind at thier backs because these drums are simply the truest sounding, deepest warmest Toms I have ever heard/played. The bass drum is well, as good as all the other top of the line bass drums but not leading enough to write home about. As for the Legacy snare drums, you will love the 5x14", it definately has all the right stuff, but I couldnt get the 6.5x14" dialed in, so I dont about that one. What ever you do, dont buy a kit before you've taken these for a test drive or you'll be sorry...
