NAMM SHOW DEAL - We ordered this very kit from the NAMM show and it has just landed with us here in time for the summer. This really is a beautiful finish, we only saw a tom in this colour but the whole kit has left all our staff completely gobsmacked! It's a winner :)
This Classic Maple 3-piece shell pack delivers the legendary Ludwig sound. Valued by professional drummers for their versatile tone and incisive attack, Ludwig Classic Maple drums are cut with 45-degree bearing edges for optimal resonance and sustain. Classic Maple drums have become favorites of Sweetwater drummers for their warm, punchy, wide-ranging sound that's ideal for both the stage and the studio. This Classic Maple Downbeat 3-piece shell pack includes a 20" bass drum, a 12" mounted tom with Atlas tom mount and tom holder, and a 14" floor tom with Triad leg mounts; enabling it to fit even better into a hard case for secure transport.

7-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's 7-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.
