Legacy Mahogany Series SOUND: Warm dark tones. Bold bottom end combined with soft mids and highs
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.
Legacy Maple Series 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 Maple is a decidedly modern twist on our vintage shell formula.
