Bill Ludwig lll introducing the WFL lll Drums at his display booth, Chicago drum Show.

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.

The WFL III featuresa one-piece aluminum 6½ X14” resonant shell, ten custom one-piece direct-thread Classic lll lugs, a specially designed and formatted Trick Drum Snare Strainer and Evans heads. Introductory MSRP pricing is set at $676.00. The first fifty snare drums produced will include a distinctive commemorative interior label indicating the number of the drum and individually signed by Bill Ludwig lll. Additional snare models are also being developed to include wood shells with traditional glue-rings, different shell sizes and even an orchestral concert model with Irish calf skin batter head.
