Something wicked this way comes, and it’s a CDE first. Meet our newly-developed CDE Exclusive “Chicago Series,” Ludwig Classic Maple drum kits with all the Classic Maple specs and configurations you know and love, and one distinctive CDE twist. In its worldwide debut, our brand new Bamboo Strata finish.
This is the first time Bamboo Strata has appeared on any drum, by any manufacturer, and we couldn’t be more proud. This rare, custom finish is as exclusive as it gets, so it’s fitting that you can only get it here as part of our ongoing CDE/CME Exclusive series.
Preferred by professionals for its tonal versatility, Classic Maple drums are the ideal choice for any performance application. Its high sensitivity, wide dynamic tuning range, and sharp attack make it the ideal choice for live performance. Yet Classic Maple's 7-ply shell is crafted to respond to the player and environment quickly, making it adaptable to any playing style or preference.
Sizes are: 12x8, 14x14, 18x14
