Ludwig 110th Anniversary 18x16" Legacy Mahogany Van Buren Floor Tom
In the tradition of Ludwig's “Victorious” drums of the 1940s, the Ludiwg 110th Anniversary 18x16" Legacy Mahogany Van Buren floor tom showcases a new vintage mahogany stain complete with inlaid maple hoops. An augmented presentation of a classic African Mahogany natural finish that celebrates the likeness of Ludwig’s first ever drum badge and Chicago showroom. Powerful raw tone couples with a vintage inspired trimming. This outfit is limited to 2019, 110th anniversary production.
The key to Legacy's classic tone begins with a cross-laminated American Poplar center ply to lend focus to the warm rich low-end "woody" tones of inner/outer Mahogany plies. This unique shell combination is further stabilized by a specially rounded bearing edge with 1" solid maple reinforcement rings.
Producing a pure, well-rounded sonic footprint, Legacy Series revives the distinctive sound that set the standard for popular music throughout the 20th Century.
Ludwig and Ludwig's 3-ply shell formula was unveiled in 1923; at the time touted as being built "...in accordance with the recognized correct principles used in the manufacture of airplanes." This classic construction evolved into a sound that captured the attention of generations of drummers.
