Classic Maple Series 

Sonically Captivating.  Versatility Defined.

Classic Maple series drums have been the professional choice for over 20 years. Its full tonality, rich sustain, and exceptional versatility has made these drums the premier choice for any performance application. Utilizing a process refined through over a century of drum making, Classic Maple drums preserve the signature Ludwig sound with optimal performance. Select from a range of popular Standard Outfits or custom tailor your kit through The Ludwig Outfitter. Hand-crafted at Ludwig USA in Monroe, NC.


Classic Maple's standard 7-ply, 6mm shell is formulated for optimum resonance and tonality. Its center three-ply core panel (laminated in a horizontal/vertical/horizontal grain bond to a 2.4mm thickness,) is inserted between inner and outer two-ply panels through our proprietary RFST molding process.

To increase stability through out the drum, all Ludwig USA shells are produced using Radio Frequency Shell Technology. Using a process involving our historic bladder molds that date back to the late 1960's, R.F.S.T.'s unique bonding system -combined with a specialized, time-tested adhesive- cures each shell evenly over the entire surface of the shell. This process is truly a principal ingredient in creating the "Ludwig Sound" in every shell we make.

Sonic Grid

Bright attack with maximum sustain for exceptional adaptability. Classic Maple is ideal for any performance setting. Its versatility makes it the best "all-purpose" drum set for today's professional settings.
