The L8646 “2 Up 2 Down” configuration is perfect for pretty much any musical situation. Jazz, Rock, Studio, Live, these drums are designed and built to deliver amazing tone and warm sustain. Handcrafted in Monroe North Carolina from premium North American Maple there is nothing “stock” about this kit. Each Ludwig Classic Maple drum set is built to order.
Classic Maple’s standard 7-ply, 6mm shell is formulated for optimum resonance and tonality. 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 that completes the unmistakable Ludwig Sound.
Ludwig Classic Maple Drumset Shell Packs are offered here in some of the most iconic finishes and configurations. However, because every drum is made to order you are free to customize these hand crafted drums to your personal taste and playing style.
