Shane Says

“Interesting tidbit: Ludwig has the most advanced and accurate method of manufacturing drum shells with the classic maple line. The tolerance where each ply meets is so tight, it negates the need for any wood filler. The end result is a outstanding, unbridled tone. When it comes to a straight maple shell, these are my favorite in the business. The sound is TIMELESS.“

Product Description

Ludwig Classic Maple 8pc Birdseye Maple CATALOG Drum Kiit

This gorgeous Ludwig Cassic Maple kit was recently photographed at Ludwig HQ and will appear in a forthcoming Ludwig Drums catalog! This kit features a 22x18 kick; 8x7, 10x8, and 12x9 toms; 14x14 and 16x16 floor toms; 14x6.5 and 12x6 matching snare drums. All drums features an exotic birdseye maple veneer and are finished in a high gloss lacquer. This is a rare chance to get your hands on a killer exotic Classic Maple kit that will be seen by countless eyes ... and even more if you take them out on the road with you! Drums only; hardware/cymbals sold separately. (Set will only be sold complete; we cannot sell individual pieces off this kit.)

SHELL:

10-ply Cross-Laminated North American Maple.

Preferred by professionals for its tonal versatility, Classic Maple drums are the ideal choice for any performance application. Its high sensitivity, wide dynamic tuning range, and sharp attack make it the ideal choice for live performance. Yet Classic Maple Exotic's 10-ply shell is crafted to respond to the player and environment quickly, making it adaptable to any playing style or preference.

BEARING EDGE:

Each drum's bearing edge is cut to a 45-degree angle within 1/16" from the outside edge. This sharp 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.

RFST MOLDING:

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 our proprietary RFST molding process.

To increase stability through out the drum, all Ludwig USA shells are produced using Radio Frequency Shell Technology. Using a process involving our 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 we make.
