What We Think

The sound of this Ludwig Classic Maple snare is exactly as its name implies: a timeless and versatile maple sound that every drummer should have in their arsenal. This drum responds well across a wide range of tunings, thanks to its versatile 6.5x14 dimensions. Crank it up for a modern snap and pop, or tune it low for a warm and gushy vintage tone. This used drum is in excellent condition and is nearly spotless. Fans of Ludwig drums would be remiss by not adding this to their collection.

Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig

Ludwig's wood snares have remained popular throughout the company's nearly 100-year history and were the drums that helped establish the fat backbeat and deep grooves of pop and R&B music in the 1970's and 80's.

The Classic Maple all-maple shell features the clarity and warmth players have come to expect from maple drums, plus the projection and musicality that has maintained Ludwig's reputation for snare drum innovation and excellence. Available in a wide selection of sounds, sizes, and styles, from piccolo, standard and deep models. From lacquer, exotic and wrapped finishes, Ludwig Classic Maple snares are the new Classics of today.

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.
