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 Mel Lewis signature range is very jazz orientated but to really
get a feel for these it helps to know something about the man himself.
Mel Lewis (1929 -1990) was a determined and opinionated man. His
playing was respected by many greats including Buddy Rich and Louis
Bellson and many others tried, but failed, to emulate his playing feel
and musicianship. The self taught son of a drummer, he played from the
age of three, he was professional at 15 and progressed to work with bop
and big bands, including with Stan Kenton and his collaboration with
Thad Jones. It is said that he is the first drummer to make the Kenton
band swing! He strongly resisted the rise of rock music, preferring to
pursue ‘real music’ where reading, dynamics and musicianship were still a
requirement. Despite his great technique he was not a showman,
preferring instead to play for the music to complement the band or
soloist. His cymbal work is often quoted as being exactly right for the
moment in the music where, for instance, he would use a low dark ride
under a trumpet line to add a fifth voice to the four part ensemble. He
is quoted as saying that every one of his cymbals is a ride cymbal and
that every one of his cymbals is also a crash!
These 14in hats have a very warm, full bodied sound. Soft, washy and buttery.

From straight-ahead Bop, to Big Band, Fusion, Latin, or even Hard Rock, DW Jazz Series® drums provide a warm, tonal spectrum that is studio-friendly and perfectly suited for live applications. Inspired by the American drum sounds of the late 70’s and early 80’s, the Jazz Series shells feature a thick gumwood core that can be combined with maple, mahogany, or cherry inner and outer plies. Jazz shells can also be customized with any available California Custom Shop finish and drum hardware color.
This is how DW does Jazz.
At the heart of every DW Jazz Series® shell is a thick 3-ply gum core. The soft, porous gumwood offers a warm, round, punchy sound that can be complemented by either the resonant attack of maple or the musical qualities of mahogany or cherry. DW Jazz Series® drums don’t have reinforcement hoops, allowing for a more open, less focused sound.
