Jeff Fleming’s Ludwig Monster

By Jordan Liffengren Published January 2011

Just one look at this monstrous setup and we were salivating all over our desks. The proud owner of this Ludwig Corey Miller kit is Jeff Fleming, a man swooned by the sheer awesomeness of what it has become, for obvious reasons. (For those of you who lost touch with popular culture in the past decade or so, Miller is the tattoo artist who rose to international fame through his regular appearances on the television show LA Ink. He is also a drummer, and has designed his own unique brand of finishes for Ludwig.)

With the addition of black chrome hoops, deccabons, and a sick Factory Metal cross crash, this kit screams “hard rock and everything else that is good and holy.”

14" x 6.5" Ludwig Black Beauty Super Sensitive snare

Psst ... hey Jeff. If you ever find enough downtime to write down the specific sizes of your drums, I’m sure the members of DRUMmagaine.com would love to see them.

  • well i know the bass drums are 22x22. the wood of these drums are crap though. i relly wanted one till i did some research.

  • The shells are made of Agathis. A southern hemisphere conifer. The wood has fantastic sonic quality’s. It has a nice fat sound. I installed 5” ports…I consider a must on long bass drums. The kick batter heads are Remo Ebony black pinstripes and the toms are Remo Black Suede  
    The ride toms are 8x12 and floor toms are 14x16. the toms are all tuned a step apart and sound awesome!

  • Nice Man!!! how do you like playing it? have a great day my friend!!

  • Thanks kingcaps! I love that set. I have two other Ludwig sets a 75 clear Vistalite and an Epic Pro. They both sound great but the Corey Millers…It’s kinda hard to put into words but it fits like a glove.

  • That’s great. Fits like a glove. And, they’re beautiful.
