Default Re: Why Do Ludwig Drums Sound So Good

The first set of drums I ever played was a 3-ply black lacquer Ludwig maple kit. 'That sound' got stuck in my ears and now even 50+ years later it is the sound I use to compare all other drums to. The only other drums I have played (and currently own and play,) is a 58' George Way kit that just kills. Otherwise, vintage Ludwig drums (50's/60's) kick a$$ on just about everything else out there sound-wise. It's all personal taste in the end, but Ludwig is the best in my humble opinion.

Too many great drums to list here!
