Part of Ludwig's Celebrated Drum Legacy

Ludwig Classic Maple floor toms are a great choice for any musical genre. Punchy and powerful, this drum's 7-ply maple shell delivers stunning impact with a strong fundamental and the aggressive attack maple is famous for. This drum obviously integrates natively into existing Ludwig Classic Maple drum kits, but we think you'll find it brings a fresh new dynamic to any kit.

Ludwig Classic Maple Floor Tom at a Glance:
  • Flawless tone and versatility
  • The Ludwig legacy
Flawless tone and 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 legacy

Since 1909, Ludwig has enjoyed one of the proudest legacies in percussion. A favorite of Sweetwater drummers for their warm, punchy sound, Ludwig drums have made their mark under the sticks of Cream's Ginger Baker, keeping the pulse behind Queen at Live Aid, and laying down John Bonham's monster beat for Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks." But what made Ludwig a household name was the Beatles' February 1964 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, with Ringo Starr on a riser playing his iconic Black Oyster Pearl Ludwig drum kit.

Ludwig Classic Maple Floor Tom Features:
  • Dimensions: 16" x 18" (depth x diameter)
  • Strong fundamental and aggressive attack
  • Brings a fresh new dynamic to any drum kit
  • 7-ply maple shell
  • Unique bonding system ensures all plies are evenly cured
  • Hand-sanded 45-degree bearing edges
Fortify your kit with this Ludwig Classic Maple floor tom!

Sweetwater is the Place for Custom Orders

I tried getting in touch with the competition for a custom order from Ludwig, and it wasn't a good experience. One call to Sweetwater though, and my 16x18 red sparkle Classic Maple floor tom was in the works (and for a great price, too).

This drum is awesome and has all that you expect from an all-maple shell. I swapped out the factory-branded Remo head for a coated Emperor, and I get a warm rumble out of it.

I couldn't be happier with this buying experience.
