Ludwig Classic Maple Drum Kit

With its tonal flexibility, Ludwig Classic Maple drums are perfect for any performance application. Its high sensitivity, wide dynamic tuning range, and sharp attack are well suited for live performances. Classic Maple’s 7-ply shell is designed to quickly respond to the player and environment, so it can adapt to any playing style or preference. 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 touch to ensure a smooth, even, flat surface for easy head seating. Classic Maple’s standard 7-ply, 6mm shell is crafted for optimal resonance and tonality. Its center 3-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 a proprietary RFST molding process. Stability is increased through out the drum by using Radio Frequency Shell Technology to produce Ludwig USA shells. Using a process involving with Ludwig’s 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 a crucial element in creating the “Ludwig Sound.”
