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.
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.
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.
