A Bold New Twist on the Classic Ludwig Sound


Series Info



SERIES INFO

Rather than merely revisiting the sound that made us famous, Keystone Series Drums carve a new niche in Ludwig's sonic identity. In fusing of our Classic Maple shell core with American Red Oak, Keystone's "pre-EQ'd" tone sculpts focus and articulation for the drummer seeking volume, attack, and power.

Keystone Series is made under the same strict quality and structural standards as all Classic Maple and Legacy drums. A perfect balance between high-volume cut and subtle articluation is achieved for the live music drummer, putting a modern twist on a century of custom American drum making.

Shell Info



SHELL INFO

Ludwig Shell

SHELL

Three-ply Classic Maple core with 1/16" inner and outer plys of American Red Oak.

Keystone's 5-ply combination of a Classic Maple three-ply core between inner and outer 1/16" plys of American Red Oak creates a thin, dense shell that speaks loudly with quick, even decay. To draw further resonance from this unique hybrid, the dual 45-degree bearing edge is pulled to the center of the shell to seat perfectly into the head.

BEARING EDGE

Dual 45-degree inner/outer with slight flat at the apex

Artist Quotes



Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, "Weird" Al Yankovic


"The Keystones caught my ear the first time I heard them. I'm in love with the punch and power, but they're also sweet and warm when I ease up on them. Sitting behind the kit, they sound like I want them to at front of house, they're just a treat to play."
