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)

The Yaquí has a very modern "bass drum and brushed snare" sound which can be heard on many recordings, including offerings from flamenco star Miguel Poveda ("Arte Sano") as well as supergroup UHF ("Bipolar"), both featuring cajón legend and DG artist Paquito González.

keep them at whatever tension you set them, no matter how hard you play.
