Ludwig Classic Maple 3-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • Built for versatility
  • The Ludwig sound
  • The Ludwig legacy
Built for versatility

Classic Maple shells are constructed of 7-ply maple for its high sensitivity, wide tuning range, and fast attack. They are molded with Ludwig's Radio Frequency Shell Technology (RFST). This process utilizes a unique bonding system and adhesive to ensure all of the plies are evenly cured through the whole surface of the shells. And the 45-degree bearing edges are hand sanded for a flawless, flat surface that enhances your shell's sustain and harmonic content.

The Ludwig sound

The maple construction of these shells delivers a highly touch-responsive tone that will fit in any genre of music and enhances your playing technique. Their bold personality makes them ideal for live performance. Ludwig drums have been heard on countless recordings and performances for decades. The Classic Maple shell pack starts with that warm iconic tone and takes it to a new level of versatility.

The Ludwig legacy

Since 1909, Ludwig drums have had one of the proudest legacies in percussion and are a favorite of Sweetwater drummers for their warm, punchy sound. The world has heard them in front of Cream's Ginger Baker, keeping the pulse behind Queen at Live Aid, and laying down the monstrous sound of Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks." But their biggest break came when Ringo Starr proudly played them on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. And the Classic Maple 3-piece shell pack carries this legacy forward.

Ludwig Classic Maple 3-piece Shell Pack Features:
  • 3-piece drum shell pack
  • 14" x 22" kick, 9" x 13" tom, 16" x 16" floor tom
  • Maple construction delivers a huge voice
  • 45-degree hand-sanded bearing edge

  • True to Ludwig's quality and tonal standards
The Classic Maple 3-piece shell pack offers Ludwig tone for any style of music.

Superb kit and service from Sweetwater

Been Waiting 15 Years!

I'm only 30, but I grew up listening to the Beatles from the crib to college, thanks to my dad. Always loved Ringo, and always wanted a kit similar to his. For the last 15 years I've played a Mapex kit with birch shells. It's been used in countless venues/shows and served its purpose well. However, I've had this Ludwig Classic Maple kit (in black oyster pearl) for about a month now, and there just aren't adequate words. I paired this kit with a Ludwig Supraphonic 6.5x14 Hammered snare, and it's a match made in heaven. I replaced the factory tom heads right away with Evans G2 coated heads, and an Evans EMAD Heavyweight on the kick. I tend to tune nice and low overall (which sounds FANTASTIC paired with my Meinl Mike Johnston Byzance box set from Sweetwater). The toms sound perfectly deep, warm, clear, and buttery. As a player, I've never felt so confident subbing snare hits for tom hits, due to my previous lack of the "perfect dialed in tom tone" on my last kit. The other thing that REALLY surprised me is how massive sounding the kick is for "only" being 22x14. Its unreal. As I often say: my suggestion to YOU would be "add to cart"... :)If you have questions I'd say call up Ben Porter at Sweetwater. He's the best!
