Big, bad and Nasty!!

By Crashman-2aUbU

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

Although I dont own the complete kit, I use to own a 18" Classic floor tom. The tom produced more low-end explosion than anything I have ever heard. A friend owns this kit (complete) and sounds unbelievable. Toms are articulate, base drum is deep and punchy. The drums tunning range is also great. Thin, maple shells are of the highest quality. This one's a no-brainer, folks. I would gladly pay more.

next best thing to bonzo's kit

By Honolulu Bobo

from Honolulu, HI

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

I don't own this set and haven't even had the chance to play one yet but I think this is the one a lot of drummers have been waiting for! I play a vintage 1970 Ludwig maple 4 piece w/ 24" bass and know the value of playing on a "big" set with no toms mounted to the bass. It's all about resonance. Be prepared because playing in this configuration is a little trickier as small tom is not at 12 0'clock over the bass. Bass drum triplets get a lot easier on a big head when you get the feel and hit it on the rebound.The reality is you probably won't find a vintage set in good condition for a realistic price so go for the next best thing. This is is it. Touche Ludwig!

Kick *** kit!

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

For those who think a 26" bass is overwhelming or bad sounding, you are wrong! They sound better than any 22" or my current 24" on my other kit! Awesome drumset!!

Hammer of the Gods

By Wong

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

I bought this kit sight unseen. Needless to say, I was worried that It wouldn't be everything that I dreamed it was. Well it proved me wrong. It is beautiful in everyway. I have yet to find any flaws in manufacturing. I bought the Natural Maple finish and this thing is a work of art. Drum sets are just not made like this anymore. Don't fall prey to any small "boutique" drum outfitter... Ludwig delivers HIGH quality product.The only changes I made was to upgrade the heads. Tuned up like Bonzo and these shells sing! I can't say enough good things about it. Came well packed and shipped from Musicians Friend with great customer support. Order with confidence!

Wanna sound like Bonham? Start here!

By Flicky

from Castro Valley, CA

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

If you want to sound like the greatest rock drummmer of all time, this is a great place to start. I also suggest purchasing a set of 2002 series Paiste cymbals, with the 15" sound edge hats. Rock on, Bonham!

Good Kit

By The Drummer-8U8w3

from Fargo ND

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

My friend owns this kit, and I have used it a few times, and from what I can see it is a good kit. It sounds great, and looks almost as good as it sounds, but I give it an overall 8, because of the lack of mufflers on the drums, and because it's not as good as my Rogers kit.

Damn!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

Just got them home. Went from a DW jazz set with 20 x 14 bass drum to this! Always wanted a set like this but would have been too expensive to build it from component drums. I got a special bonus with my set too. They were tuned up and played by John Bonham's drum tech at a special drum clinic. I immediately measured the tuning with a tama drum watch so I can always return to this tuning.

Pleased

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

This set delivers, period. The sound alone resonates with authority and keeps a driving metronome in the music my band is playing, and by no means is it timid. It also compliments the music with its classic sound, thumbs way up!!!!!

Good drums.

By TimEvansdrumsEvans

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

These are a good set of drums. The big sizes rock, but it is out of date when it comes to features that could easily make it sound even better. Mounting a tom on a snare stand just kills the sound. Plus the amount of holes could easily be reduced. I recommend a rock sized Pro-M Mapex set, the kick is only 24 inch, but is 18 deep compared to 14. The sound is much cleaner. Overall though if you want a strong vintage sound great drums.

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

This is my 2nd set of ludwigs since I first started playing drums.I really like the wood finish,mine are the cherry.Bass drum really sounds good with no muffling.I put remo batter heads on top and the thin diplomats on bottom of the toms,at times I just run 1 floor tom.Great sounding kit even better in a live sounding room. Have owned them a year now.Seen Bonzo live in 1975 and these sound real close.I would suggest this kit to anybody wanting a rich DEEP sounding kit.

Bonzo's Return!

By Matt-_fCA2

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

This is easily the best drumkit I have ever played. I bought this in March 05 and have used it in the studio and several live shows. It is worth every penny that I paid. Super quality, awesome sound and heavy duty. Many drummers come to me after shows and ask about the kit, drooling over it. I have played kits from most every brand and have owned a few Tama and Pearl sets. This one is my favorite, I feel like Bonzo sitting back there. I do use the Larz Ulrich Tama Bell Brass snare with it since I have had great results in studio and live with it. I highly recommend this kit to anyone looking for serious quality and huge sound, you get exactly what you pay for. Hear it on the myspace link at floozieband . com

By killer Kev

from S.F. BAY AREA

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

I bought the Maple Bonham kit in green sparkle. I use a LM-402 Supra snare, and the kit is awesome. I put remo Emperor heads on the batter side, Ambassador heads on the reso side-big, fat, full sound. They look and sound unbelievable.

Ludwig Is The #1 Rock-N-Roll Drum!

By BoomWap

from Des Moines, Iowa

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

Every great musician of the last century demanded and received the best from Ludwig! Ludwig is the most recorded drum in Rock-N-Roll! Ludwig, in my opinion, deserves the most credit for the success of Rock-N-Roll! The drums were, and always have been the heart of Rock-N-Roll!

The kit

By nick-BFLrC

from Nottingham, NH

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

This drumkit is truly a piece of art in drum form, the bass drum is truly one of a kind and big sounding. the 2 floor toms, if tuned low with remo weatherking ambassador heads, truly sound like early bonham. same with the snare-stand mounted tom. the snare is decent, but if you get the chance, upgrade to a supraphonic snare that comes standard with the vistalites kits, or get a spirit of 2002 snare, both very beautiful. This kit is great for active musicians looking to be heard and remembered at local clubs other gigs, truly a piece of art.

Wow!!!

By Suds

from Foxboro, MA

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

Wow!!! What an upgrade. Went from a Pacific low budget kit to this. My, oh my, what a great sounding kit. Thundering bass and toms!!! My only gripe: opened my 18" floor tom and low and behold, there's a screw inside, sitting on the bottom head. What the hell? Turns out to be one of the screws that holds one of the feet brackets. Took the head off, tightened all the other screws, some were quite loose, and then replaced said screw, put the head back on, good to go!!! Other than that, great kit!!! Definitely will be checking all the other screws on my next head change!!!

An unbelievably awesome drumset

By YettiBrad

from Southern WV

Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 5-Piece Drum Set:

I've been wanting to get a set like this for over 10 years, and Ludwig answered my prayers by remaking these beauties. I don't know how I ever played another set after I played these drums. The sound is very, very Bonham-like, right out of the box. The Supraphonic 6-1/2" x 14" snare is great, as is the monsterous bass drum and toms. Hardware is very solid as well. My only small complaint is the high price, but it's still almost completely worth it.
