The most sought after drum tone returns, and an American Legend is reborn. The Ludwig Legacy Mahogany series is a return of the shell that was the core of Ludwig drums for over 50 years. Handcrafted in Monroe, NC, the 3-ply Mahogany/Poplar/Mahogany shell with solid 1″ thick maple reinforcement rings utilizes a process refined through a century of drum manufacturing. The result is a tone with rich sonic warmth that only Ludwig can produce. Ludwig Legacy Mahogany is truly the best of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
1/16″ Mahogany Outer Ply, 1/8″ Poplar Core Ply, 1/16″ Mahogany 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 rich low-end “woody” tones of inner/outer Mahogany plies. This unique shell combination is further stabilized by a specially rounded bearing edge with 1″ solid maple reinforcement rings.
30 Degree inner cut with a 1/4″ 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.
