Vintage Ludwig drums -featuring the classic 3-ply shell construction from Ludwig's Golden Era- are treasured for tonal purity in recording environments. As Ludwig's flagship professional drum line, Legacy Series is a decidedly modern twist on our vintage shell formula.
1/16" Maple Outer Ply, 1/8" Poplar Core Ply, 1/16" Maple Inner Ply with 1/4" Solid Maple Reinforcement Rings.
The key to Legacy's classic tone begins with a cross-laminated American Poplar center ply to lend focus to the warm, sustained resonance of inner/outer Maple plies. This unique shell combination is further stabilized by a specially-rounded bearing edge with single-ply reinforcement rings.
30 Degree inner cut with a 1/8" radius round over
Producing a pure, well-rounded sonic footprint, Legacy Series revives the distinctive sound that set the standard for popular music throughout the 20th Century.
Ludwig and Ludwig's 3-ply shell formula was unveiled in 1923; at the time touted as being built "...in accordance with the recognized correct principles used in the manufacture of airplanes." This classic construction evolved into a sound that captured the attention of generations of drummers.
