Default Ludwig Sound

Ludwig drums sound so good, that is all. Merry Christmas.

Funny, you had to edit your post.😂
I love Clubdates, they seem to find me, so over the past couple years Iíve just ridden the wave!
Now I am considering selling my Camco kit to buy more Clubdates!
Itís a Ludwig conundrum!
Merry Christmas to all drummers!

My 1968 Super Classic set in Champagne Sparkle (even with the 'faked' floor tom) is still my favorite 'gig set'....

I don't know how Ludwig has survived for all of these years with me not ever considering buying a Ludwig set as one of the many new drum sets I've bought since 1957. Happy holidays to all from me and all of my drum sets of other-than-Ludwig pedigree.

Big fan of Ludwig here too! But not ready to sell a Camco kit to fund more Luwigs. Currently I have a "jelly bean" setup with all Ludwig drums ( except for snare) and its sounds wonderful.

I just did that, or rather, I bought what I always wanted - a mid 60ís WMP Ludwig downbeat with added 16Ē and 2x 13Ē. Then I sold my Camco, Premier, Rogers etc. I really only need the Ludwig, it has THE sound.

I was "Ringo" influenced when I began drumming. My school used Gretsch drums for marching, concert and stage band. Those red sparkle Gretsch were so damn heavy. Therefore I bought Ludwig as my first quality kit. I have loved their sound and never wanted anything else. Fifty years later.......I still do.
