VIDEO IS HERE. EXCLUSIVE FOR OUR SHOP! FIRE BURST PEARL! Pre-order now! I asked Ludwig to create this wrap for me as a nod to the similar wrap Ludwig had in the 1930s. This finish will be available in many different configurations. This set is the first off the production line and will be displayed at our booth at the Chicago Drum Show on 5/18 and 5/19. The set shown here is a Downbeat 8x12, 14x14, 14x20, 5x14 10 lug snare drum. If you don't see your sizes, other configurations will be available. And, this finish can be ordered for Classic Maple, Legacy Maple, and Legacy Mahogany, so contact Steve through Reverb for more info.


Here is some more info from Ludwig on their Classic Maple series drums:


"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 historic bladder molds that date back to the late 1960's, 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. Each drum's bearing edge is cut to a 45-degree angle within 1/16" from the outside edge. This profile is critical for a wide tuning range, and maximum sustain. The 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."
