LUDWIG LEGACY MAHOGANY 4 PIECE DRUM KIT, AGED ONYX, (PRE-LOVED)
Here we have an absolutely stunning Ludwig Legacy Mahogany in Aged Onyx. The Legacy is Ludwig’s flagship drum kit and re-visits the original shell that started it all!
Handcrafted in Monroe, NC, the 3-ply Mahogany/Poplar/Mahogany shell with solid 1" thick maple reinforcement rings utilizes a process refined through a century of drum manufacturing. The result is a tone with rich sonic warmth that sounds exactly as you would expect from a classic Ludwig set.
1/16" Mahogany Outer Ply, 1/8" Poplar Core Ply, 1/16" Mahogany Inner Ply with 1/4" Solid Maple Reinforcement Rings.
The key to Legacy's classic tone begins with a cross-laminated American Poplar center ply to lend focus to the warm rich low-end "woody" tones of inner/outer Mahogany plies. This unique shell combination is further stabilized by a specially rounded bearing edge with 1" solid maple reinforcement rings.
30 Degree inner cut bearing edges with a 1/4" radius round over produce a pure, well-rounded sonic footprint. Legacy Series revives the distinctive sound that set the standard for popular music throughout the 20th Century.
Ludwig and Ludwig's 3-ply shell formula was unveiled in 1923; at the time touted as being built "...in accordance with the recognized correct principles used in the manufacture of airplanes." This classic construction evolved into a sound that captured the attention of generations of drummers.
