Pearl Elite Concert Woodblocks


The hand crafted Legacy Classic line is based on a new and improved version of Ludwig’s legendary, reinforced 3-ply drumshells with their magical balance of warmth, resonance and clarity. Like the original shells, the exclusive Legacy Classic shells are made from thin, hand-selected inner and outer plies of premium-grade North American Maple and a ross-laminated North American Poplar core ply. This traditional formula is then augmented by maple reinforcement hoops and rounded, “Classic-Cut” vintage-style bearing edges. In addition to their performance proven traditional shell design, Legacy Classic also features newly developed manufacturing methods along with a host of upgrades and innovations, such as low-mass “mini-classic” lugs, traditional “keystone” badges and genuine Weathermaster drumheads. Due to their handcrafted, labour intense nature, there will initially be only two Legacy Classic shell-pack configurations offered. However, the kits will be available in a wide selection of finish options that include new high-gloss, hand-rubbed Emerald Fade Sparkle (EG) and Rose/Copper Sparkle (RG) lacquers as well as high-gloss versions of all current Ludwig Classic Maple lacquer finishes.
