Ludwig Classic Maple Bass Drum at a Glance:

  • The Ludwig sound
  • The Ludwig legacy
Built for versatility

The 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 a 45-degree bearing edge is hand sanded for a flawless, flat surface that enhances your shell's sustain and harmonic content.

The Ludwig sound

The maple construction of this bass drum delivers a highly touch-responsive tone that will fit in any genre of music depending on your playing technique. And their bold personality makes them ideal for live performance. The sound of Ludwig drums has been heard on countless recordings and performances for decades. The Classic Maple bass drum starts with that warm iconic tone and takes it to a louder and more versatile level.

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 under the sticks of Cream's Ginger Baker, keeping the pulse behind Queen at Live Aid, and laying down the monstrous beat 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, making Ludwig a household name for aspiring and superstar drummers alike.

Ludwig Classic Maple Bass Drum Features:
  • 14" x 22" bass drum
  • Maple construction delivers a huge voice
  • 45-degree hand-sanded bearing edge
  • RFST molding increases drum stability
  • True to Ludwig's quality and tonal standards
Ludwig Classic Maple: legendary tone for any style of music.
