This Ludwig 5x14" Classic Maple snare drum allows drummers and percussionists to play with the expected clarity and warmth synonymous with maple drums, and its robust projection and musicality highlight Ludwig's continual commitment to pioneering the same standard of snare drum that got them to where they are today.
The Classic Maple offers a wide range of tonalities and is very responsive to the player's preferences. Whether you gravitate toward the tight precision of a piccolo, or the conventional resonance and timbre of a deep snare, the Ludwig Classic Maple is able to accommodate a spectrum of tastes. Its wrapped Lemon Oyster finish enhances the look of this drum to match its applicable tonality, and its steel, triple-flanged hoops cover 45 degree bearing edges.
The Ludwig Classic Maple snare is also a nod to the brand's legacy. Designed with Ludwig enthusiasts in mind, and hand-selected and built in the United States, the snare's appointments and retro finish pay homage to a prominent Ludwig era. The 7-ply maple shell and the P85AC throw provide musicians with a nuanced level of snare control to meet the demands of diverse musical genres or to blend into, or stand out of any musical environment.
Ludwig has an illustrious history that spans almost a century, and is consistently continuing to grow their legacy with newer drums like the Classic Maple snare drum—a symbolic instrument that's been reimagined for contemporary use.
