What We Think

Introducing the Ludwig 110th Anniversary Legacy Mahogany Van Buren Snare Drum. This snare is a throwback to the legendary late-'40s Ludwig look and feel. Handcrafted from select mahogany and poplar, the Legacy shell has been the foundation of the Ludwig sound for decades. It’s hand-sanded with 30-degree bearing edges on the interior and a 1/4" roundover for a warmer and fuller note. Adding to the warmth, the Van Buren showcases a new vintage mahogany stain complete with inlaid maple hoops and a commemorative badge. Secure a little bit of Ludwig history with this 110th Anniversary snare drum.

Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig

In the tradition of Ludwig’s “Victorious” drums of the 1940s, the Ludwig 110th Anniversary Legacy Mahogany Van Buren snare drum showcases a new vintage mahogany stain complete with inlaid maple hoops. An augmented presentation of a classic African Mahogany natural finish that celebrates the likeness of Ludwig’s first ever drum badge and Chicago showroom. Powerful raw tone couples with a stylish presentation. This outfit is limited to 2019, 110th anniversary production.

The shell is constructed with a 1/16" mahogany outer ply, 1/8" poplar core ply, 1/16" mahogany inner ply and 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.

Bearing Edge
The snare features a 30º inner cut with a 1/4" radius round over bearing edge. Producing a pure, well-rounded sonic footprint, Legacy Series revives the distinctive sound that set the standard for popular music throughout the 20th Century.


About Manufacturer

Touted as “the most famous name on drums,” Ludwig stands today as one of the most legendary and revered American drum manufacturers of all time. Founded in 1909 under the name Ludwig & Ludwig, the company has existed under a number of different owners and names, with the Ludwig brand operating today as a subsidiary of Conn-Selmer. Throughout almost 110 years of change, one thing has remained constant: Ludwig’s dedication to building high-quality drums with that signature Ludwig tone. Over the years, Ludwig drums have laid down solid backbeats and infectious grooves at the hands of drummers like John Densmore, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, and of course, Ringo Starr. Their iconic kits from the 60s and 70s remain highly coveted by collectors and players alike, but their new offerings continue to uphold the legendary Ludwig name just the same.
