Ludwig Super Classic Maple White Marine Pearl Reviews
Ordered this set through my local drum shop in Austin, TX, Tommy's Drum Shop. Tommy's also makes the famous Fibes drums that are now becoming popular again. I paid roughly $1,600.00 for just the tubs: 10x8, 12x8, 16x16, 22x18, all in White Marine Pearl, no holes drilled for any mounting hardware.
I've been playing semi-pro for many years, have gone through many different sets (Yamaha, Pearl, Tama, Ayotte, DW, Sonor), all professional quality, but never Ludwig. I decided to buy the SuperClassic Maple's on a whim. Ludwig's marketing is severely lacking as I don't remember anyone playing Ludwigs other than: Bonham, VanHalen, Starr, and maybe some of the old Stax/Volt guys. Oh yes, and Jeff Porcaro, how could I forget!
Recorded with this set very soon after it arrived. I screwed around with it a couple of days before the session. After setting it up in the studio, the producer and engineer came in, commented a little on the look of the drumset, and set up all mics. The sound was phenomenal right out of the shute. After the session was over, they both said it was the most amazing drum sound they have ever recorded, and if I would come back and play with a different artist. I told em', "that's Ludwig for ya!"It\'s the arrow, not the indian. rated this unit on 2005-08-08.
