4/27/2010 — Legacy Exotic, Ludwig USA’s flagship professional drum line, adds rare hardwood veneers to the classic 3-ply combination of inner and outer North American Maple and single Poplar core ply with solid Maple reinforcement rings. After locating several felled logs from across the globe, three exotic hardwoods made the final cut for their visual elegance and tonal contribution to the Legacy shell; vertical grain African Black Limba, vivid Australian Lacewood, and Amazon Sumauma, each available in a choice of four different lacquer finishes. Furthermore, every drum can be custom configured with the player’s choice of lugs and hardware.

“Ludwig drums have been the industry standard since 1909 and the tradition and quality continues on today better than ever with a sound that could only be Ludwig,” said Kevin Packard, Director of Marketing, Combo Percussion. Prices vary depending on options, custom shell packs start at $4,999.00 MSRP.

Ludwig Drums are manufactured and distributed by Conn-Selmer, Inc., the largest manufacturer of band and orchestral instruments and accessories in the United States and a subsidiary of Steinway Musical Instruments, Inc.
