Series Info


Extremely limited in production, The Special "Chief" Edition Stainless ProBeat kit is a true testament to our timeless roots. Forged for unprecedented volume, sustain, and power by drumsmith Ronn Dunnett, these 1.5mm hand-rolled steel shells produce enormous tone and volume without brash overtones. In tribute to our company's founder, each bass drum shell is fitted with the minted chrome "Chief" badge.

Shell Info



The 1970's were a time of great innovation at Ludwig's Damen Ave. facility. True to Ludwig's tradition of innovation, Stainless Steel kits were forged for unprecedented volume, sustain, and power in heavy music. Ludwig's Limited Edition Stainless Steel drums are a true testament to our timeless roots. Only 100 kits will be made available, all of them hand-rolled and tooled by Drumsmith Ronn Dunnett. The first 50 feature a polished stainless steel finish and brass hardware; the second 50 with a brushed stainless steel finish and chrome hardware. This ultra-thin stainless shell and bearing edge of each drum create a tone of such enormity that they simply have to be experienced to be believed.
