Tradition, Craftsmanship, and Visionary Excellence


These are the values at the center of the Ludwig legacy. With these values comes a commitment as true as the care and pride that goes into each drum, hand-crafted at Ludwig's manufacturing facility in Monroe, North Carolina.

Every Ludwig USA drum is a custom drum; hand-crafted to-order at our plant in Monroe, NC. A myriad of options from the Ludwig Configuration Generator are incorporated into each drum straight from the player; and are brought to life with the shell as its focal point.

Shells:

The principle element in the Ludwig Sound is in our shells. Utilizing a process refined through a century of drum making, Ludwig drum shells begin with hand-selected, cross-laminated veneers and are crafted in-house with stark attention to detail, precision, and quailty.

Sizes: 6" to 26" in a variety of depths.*


*Size availability may vary depending on selected shell type.
Consult your Ludwig dealer for details.


Ludwig LCG

To increase stability through out the drum, all Ludwig USA shells are produced using Radio Frequency Shell Technology. Using a process involving our original bladder molds, 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.
