NAMM 2018: More from Ludwig

NAMM 2018: More from Ludwig

In addition to the Raw Brass snare drum announced last week, Ludwig is set for a busy show, with new kits, new hardware and a new (old) finish back from the 1960s.

Ludwig 14 x 6.5 RAW Brass Snare

Fresh on the stand will be Ludwig’s NeuSonic kits. With six ply maple/cherry hybrid shells, pre-set bass drum spurs, four wrap finishes, the new kits come in two shell packs – 12/12/13 and 22/13/16 – and ship in single cartons. UK distributor Active Music says they will sell (street) for £1,077.


Also new is Ludwig’s Evolution hardware, which comprises a Hi Hat stand/snare drum stand bass drum pedal 2, and twin boom stands. This will sell (street) for £266.

Ludwig Mod Orange

Finally, commemorating John Densmore of The Doors and celebrating the 50th year of Mod Orange, The Doors, and the “Swinging’ Scene”, Ludwig is reissuing Mod Orange for all USA series drums: Legacy, Classic Maple, Keystone X and Club Date. Like all other Vintage Oyster finish offerings from Ludwig, these are authentically produced by a hand blending process of materials to re-create the look.
