Ludwig Adds To Drums Of The Century Collection

Ludwig Announces the Snare Drums of a Century Collection

Ludwig is one of the grandfathers of the modern musical products business. The company has been making drums for marching, concert and popular music since 1909, making this their 100th year in business. To commemorate the event Ludwig has released some exciting new drums, Ludwig Snare Drums of a Century Collection.

To drummers in all styles the Ludwig legacy was built on a foundation of legendary snare drums, such as the famous Black Beauty and Supraphonic models. Now, in its 100th year, Ludwig pays homage to its historical drums with the Snare Drums of a Century Collection. Available at select Ludwig Platinum Dealers nationwide, the collection includes the 1928 Gold Triumphal reissue, the 100th Anniversary hand-engraved Black Beauty, a laser-engraved Black Magic model, and two titanium Supraphonic models, known as "The Chief" snares.

"Each drum in this collection tells a story," says Symphonic Percussion Director of Marketing Jim Catalano. "There is so much history that is represented in these drums and they are truly something special." These models will be limited to 100 pieces each worldwide. For complete specifications on each drum and a list of participating dealers, go to Ludwig Drums.
