Ludwig and Ludwig's 3-ply shell formula was unveiled in 1923, and at the time touted as being built "... in accordance with the recognized correct principles used in the manufacture of airplanes." This classic construction evolved into a sound that captured the attention of generations of drummers.
Incorporating many of the same methods used throughout its long and illustrious history, Ludwig's Legacy Classic Series revives the distinctive sound that set the standard for popular music throughout the 20th Century.
Legacy Classic shells are made from choice cuts of hand-selected North American hardwoods. A core ply of premium Poplar yields warmth and resonance while cross-laminated inner and outer plies of Maple deliver power and clarity. 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 articulation, suitable for any musical style.
Not merely a blast from the past, Legacy drums take full advantage of state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques with rigorous attention to detail. The Legacy Classic Series are now available in expanded sizes and finish options for the consummate professional.
