William F. Ludwig lll introduces the WFL lll Drums
William F. Ludwig lll announced the formation of his own designed WFL lll Drums at the 24th annual Chicago Drum Show in May. Bill Ludwig lll, commonly known as “Bill lll” in drum circles, represents the third generation of master drum builders as his grandfather was the founder of Ludwig & Ludwig Drum Co. in 1909 which later became the percussion industry icon of Ludwig Drum Company in Chicago.
“It was time to answer the market demands for a reasonably priced great sounding snare drum manufactured in the U.S.” said Ludwig, during a Press Conference held at the Chicago Drum show. “Every professional drummer and recording artist builds an arsenal of different snare drums and sounds regardless of any product or brand endorsement they may have. This WFL lll Drum will become a “must have” snare drum addition for every serious player because of the unique cutting sound of the metal shell, ease and stability of tuning along with it’s stunning black shell chrome hardware appearance.
