LUDWIG Classic Maple MTS Downbeat

3-piece drum kit from the legendary Classic Maple series

The Ludwig MTS Downbeat 20 is a 3-piece drum set from the Ludwig Classic Maple series and is aimed at professional drummers who are looking for a tonally and optically perfectly tuned tool. These drums live up to their name because they deliver the unmistakable, classical Ludwig sound in all its musicality and expressiveness. Whether for studio recordings or on stage, the Ludwig Classic Maple Drums offer professional performance and highest sound quality.

This set consists of a 20" x14" Bass Drum, a 12" x8" Tom Tom and a 14" x14" Floor Tom with a beautiful Mahogany Stain finish. This setup can of course be extended by a large selection of single shells.

Shells made from the finest maple wood

The foundation for good sound lies in cleanly processed drum shells and in the Ludwig Classic Maple series these consist of a total of 7 layers of the finest maple wood, resulting in a thickness of 6 mm. During production, the core is produced first, consisting of 3 cross-glued veneer layers. Then two outer and two inner layers are added with the help of the RFST molding process. The bearing edges are at an angle of 45° and are located on the outer approx. 1.5 mm of the shell. This creates a rather sharp edge, which gives the Classic Maple drums their open sound character. The beautiful Mahogany Stain finish finally gives the shells an exterior that does justice to the exquisite sound.

Rubber pads for improved resonance

The Tom Tom and Floor Tom hoops are made of steel, which gets its stability through a double flange. The bass drum's tension hoops are made of wood and are painted both inside and outside in the color of the set. The clamping brackets are classically chrome-plated and equipped with rubber pads. This avoids direct contact between the metal fitting and the wood, which not only protects the sensitive shell surface, but also improves the resonance of the shell.
