Ludwig Classic Maple
This awesome Ludwig Classic maple snare drum recently arrived at the shop about 6 weeks ago, I’ve played it a couple times previously and fallen in love with it!
I picked this drum up a couple months ago from a collector, who let me have a load of Ludwig snare drums! All kept cased, dry, in lovely condition. Sometimes I myself find it a bit overwhelming walking into the shop as we have a huge stock of vintage snares; so often, great drums get overlooked for more common models. This is one of those drums. 14 x 6.5″ 6 ply Maple shell, in black wrap, immaculate – not a scratch on the drum, all original hardware and best of all it sounds amazing!
I’ve got the drum tuned medium with a twin ply Remo PS3 coated and Puresound wires. It gives a lovely classic rock tone, with plenty of weight and warmth. Tune it higher and you’d achieve a much brighter sounds; tune it way down low with a gel and you can get that fat, low punch.
