Having run the gamut between the low tonal warmth of the Legacy shell and the resonant midrange qualities of Classic Maple, the Ludwig Sound needed an alternative for the louder player. With this need in mind, Ludwig USA's craftsmen went back to square one to create a completely new shell for today's drummer.

Keystone Series Drums have carved a new niche in Ludwig's tonal legacy. Rather than merely revisiting the sound that made us famous, Keystone Series has the distinction of a more focused tonality for the drummer seeking volume, attack, and power at maximum volume. Exceptional performance in environments where projection is necessary over loud instruments.

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.

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.

  • Vibraband Suspension Mounts
  • 2.3mm Hoops
  • Evans Drumhead
