In its 100th Anniversary year, Ludwig is introducing the new Legacy Exotic drum set, a model they describe as a "rethink to a modern classic."
Ludwig had this to say:
“After locating several felled logs from Africa and Australia, three exotic hardwoods made the final cut because of their visual elegance and tonal quality: Sumauma, Lacewood, and Black Limba. Ludwig has combined these woods with inner and outer plys of North American Maple and traditional single 1/8” thick Poplar core ply that creates a rich sonic warmth to the Legacy’s shell and moves it into a new tonal spectrum. Legacy’s trademark rounded bearing edge creates a perfect compliment to the 1/4" single-ply Maple reinforcement rings."
The company says that throughout 2009, four finishes in each of these woods will be introduced.
These inaugural Legacy Exotic kits will be in limited supply, according to Ludwig.
