Ludwig USA Keystone 3 Pc Drum Kit
Ludwig’s Keystone series is the best drum set for classic rock drummers. Many of the great rock legends of the classic rock era played Ludwig drums and this kit brings back a bit of that sound. The kit is versatile enough to use in modern rock, but the overall sound hints at being vintage. The shells are made of mostly maple surrounded by thin layers of oak which makes the drums a bit louder than other maple kits. This is very effective for rock music because it tends to be louder than other styles.
The bearing edge is very unique because it’s angled on both the inner and outer edge of the shell and has some flat wood at the center. This edge increases vibration which then leads to bigger sound production. The mounts for the rack toms are built on top of one of the lugs so they don’t cut into the drum, giving the toms a full tone and open sound. One cool feature is the cymbal arms that can be attached to a leg of the floor tom or bass drum and most of the cymbal stands are built into the kit, which is very convenient. Ludwig drums are some of the most durable drums ever made, so you can trust that they will last a long time and you have several different configurations and finishes available to choose from. The finishes are simply beautiful and add a vintage look to compliment the kits classic sound.
