New for 2016 - Keystone X - a bold new twist on the classic Ludwig sound.
Rather than merely revisiting the sound that made them famous, Keystone Series Drums carve a new niche in Ludwig's sonic identity. In fusing of their Classic Maple shell core with American Red Oak, Keystone's "pre-EQ'd" tone sculpts focus and articulation for the drummer seeking volume, attack, and power.
Made in the USA
Keystone Series is made under the same strict quality and structural standards as all Classic Maple and Legacy drums. A perfect balance between high-volume cut and subtle articluation is achieved for the live music drummer, putting a modern twist on a century of custom American drum making.
Three-ply Classic Maple core with 1/16" inner and outer plys of American Red Oak.
Keystone's 5-ply combination of a Classic Maple three-ply core between inner and outer 1/16" plys of American Red Oak creates a thin, dense shell that speaks loudly with quick, even decay. To draw further resonance from this unique hybrid, the dual 45-degree bearing edge is pulled to the center of the shell to seat perfectly into the head.
Finish: Arctic Oak - matte lacquered shell (inner and outer)

In the '80s TAMA's Superstars and Imperialstars reigned supreme - the
perfect drums for the times. But TAMA's builders and designers wanted
something that transcended trends, something timeless - drums that
understood a player's passion and allowed the expression of every genre,
style, mood, and technique. They created Starclassic Maple drums...and
ignited the thin-shell revolution. And now the new Exotic Finish line
offers beautiful, one-of-a-kind exotic wood exteriors for that extra

For the optimum transfer of vibrations from head to shell, a thinner
shell is better. However, less thickness often equals less strength.
Instead of simply making thinner shells by using fewer plies, TAMA slims
down each ply and then cross laminates them into a 6ply 5mm thick shell
(8ply 7mm bass drum). This combination results in a thinner shell
that's actually stronger than others of greater thickness. Starclassic
shells utilize maple, the most popular shell material today because of
its warm clear sound.Features:

Mapex started the design of Armory with the idea that players want to
spend more time playing and less time tuning their drums. The result is
the SONIClear™ Bearing Edge, which increases the contact between the
drumhead and shell and allows the head to sit flat on the edge, this
produces a stronger and more centred pitch and makes the drums
remarkably easy to tune.
The increased contact also enhances shell vibration, making the
tonal nuances produced by different shell materials more prominent. The
effect of the Armory Hybrid Shell, which uses a blend of maple and
birch, is increased brilliance and projection on the rack toms and a
fatter and darker punch from the floor toms and bass drum
Finish: Arctic White
*Please Note: Cymbals and Stands are not included.
This drum features a seamless 1.2 Aluminium shell with a centre bead. The 8-Lug Steel Mighty Hoops make for a crisp sound with short sustain.

Brand: British Drum Co
Based in Stockport and founded by Master Drum Builder Keith Keough, The British Drum Company adheres to the proudest traditions of British drum manufacturing, using only British made shells, employing striking design and committing to constant innovation.
Legend is the British Drum Company's flagship drum set and is the ultimate offering for any drummer.
A culmination of tried and tested traditional methods of shell moulding have resulted in a cold pressed birch shell with mahogany reinforcement rings. Renowned for its studio qualities and live performance, the birch shell pushes very strong mid to high end frequencies and channels a powerful clean tone, that is enhanced by our signature mahogany reinforcement rings.
The shell is furnished with a hand cut 45 degree bearing edge which is finished to a very high standard. Attention to detail is taken in every aspect of the Legend's make up, and no other kit rivals it for its unique cold pressed shells and tonal quality.
The birch ply shell is made up from a 10ply, 6mm thick shell using cross laminated plies. Using almost as many plies to every mm creates a super strong shell for its thickness that enhances the tonal character of the birch shell. The Legend kit is available in six standard finishes but can also be tailored to your specific finish on special request.
