The exciting return of an American classic.
Ludwig proudly presents their Legacy Classic Liverpool 4 series snare drums. This custom-built American-made snare is a reissue, 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. The Ludwig snare is covered with a faithful reproduction of the original "Oyster Black" pearl finish with Classic lugs and a Supraphonic throwoff.
Incorporating many of the same methods used throughout its long and illustrious history, Ludwig's exclusive Legacy Classic drum shells are made in-house from the choicest cuts of hand-selected North American hardwoods.
At the core of the Ludwig snare 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 Ludwig Legacy Classic is not merely a blast from the past. This snare 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, Ludwig Legacy Classic Liverpool 4 drums are among the best of today, yesterday, and tomorrow.

Comments about Ludwig Legacy Classic Snare Drum:
Hardware, finish, sound...all top rate.
This snare is about as "Ringoish" as it gets... I've seen the "Bowling Ball Pearl"...the "Urban Camo Pearl"...one seller advertised "Black Abalone"...the various other "Black Oyster Pearl" attempts...but this wrap really resembles the 60's wrap much more closely...not exactly...(60's wrap appears more "grayish" in it's pearly striations, than this wrap).....but,it's a very very close runner up. As a Beatles tribute...it looks the part. For several thousand dollars...you can still buy an 8 lug, BOP 60's snare...if you just gotta have one.
Typical Ludwig quality.
A very good value, considering the BOP wrap.
