Vintage Ludwig Drums


The standard drums in the 1970’s progressed a slight bit by offering more configuration options and add-ons for hardware and drums. No significant change came to play for standard series drums up until 1982. By then, Ludwig had dropped the 3-ply shell and the list of finishes offered for standard drums. New second generation standard drums were offered in only 4 cortex wraps, outfitted with second generation rounded blue/olive badge, and made up of a 4-ply mold for all drums excluding the bass drum which was a 6-ply mold.
