The Powerful and Punchy Sound of Oak and Maple

Get a perfect balance of high volume, cutting attack, and subtle articulation with Ludwig's Keystone X Pro Beat Shell Pack. A great combination of mounted tom, floor tom, and bass drum shells for recording and live performance, the Keystone X Pro Beat Shell Pack delivers a pre-EQed sound that's bigger than life and hard to drown out with cymbals. That's because Ludwig used a combination of maple and oak plies to provide each drum with added punch and projection. Add to that their ATLAS tom suspension mounts and low-profile Mini-classic lugs, and you've got the core of a drum kit that sounds and looks amazing.

Ludwig Keystone X Pro Beat 3-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • Maple/oak 5-ply shells deliver loud and punchy tone
  • ATLAS mount isolation lets your toms resonate
  • A proud part of the impressive Ludwig legacy
Maple/oak 5-ply shells deliver loud and punchy tone

Simply put, Keystone X Pro Beat shells sound the way many engineers try to EQ drums, and that's largely the result of their tonewoods and construction process. Each Keystone X shell features a 3-ply maple core with 1/16" American red oak plies on the inside and the outside. The result is a thin yet dense shell that delivers massive volume with a quick, even decay. Add to that a 45-degree bearing edge, and you get an extra resonance and punch to bolster your sound.

ATLAS mount isolation lets your toms resonate

The toms in this Keystone X Pro Beat Shell Pack benefit from Ludwig's ATLAS mounting platform. This self-contained 3-point mounting system reduces the mass of your shell's hardware and allows it to vibrate naturally. Top it off with Ludwig's low-profile Mini-classic lugs, and you've got streamlined hardware that looks and performs great.

A proud part of the impressive Ludwig legacy

Since 1909, Ludwig drums have had one of the proudest legacies in percussion and are a favorite of Sweewater 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 Keystone X Pro Beat 3-piece Shell Pack Features:
  • Powerful and punchy maple and oak drum shells
  • 5-ply shells with 3-ply maple core and inner and outer oak plies
  • 45-degree bearing edge adds resonance and volume
  • ATLAS tom mounts provide added resonance
  • Set includes 1 mounted tom, 1 rack tom, and 1 bass drum
When you want volume, punch, and articulation, grab Ludwig Keystone X Pro Beat shells!

Keystone Money Well Spent

Hi All- My name is Mitch Eckler a recording and touring drummer from Central, NY. I really like my Keystones, they are fantastic live drums. The build quality is exceptional and Ludwig's attention to detail is something I wish the rest of the industry would follow. The Kick is warm and punchy, I use a 91A on a kelly shu product to keep the tone isolated and it sounds great through any system. The toms can be a bit dark and are more difficult to tune than I anticipated. But the toms tonal/coloring shortcomings can be addressed through heads and careful tuning of course... But, the maple oak hybrid will always keep the sustain short and the tone dark. My, my are they loud though. All in all this is a great drumset and one of the best possible buys for any level drummer. Great job ludwig.
