Ludwig Hammered Brass
Ludwig Drums is a US manufacturer of percussion instruments, established in 1909 by William F. & Theobald Ludwig, sons of a German immigrant to the United States. William Jr. had been a professional drummer, playing with circuses and touring vaudeville shows, he and his brother, Theobald, opened a drum shop in Chicago; they called it Ludwig & Ludwig. The brand achieved significant popularity in the 1960s due to the endorsement of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
Having a similar sonic quality to the Black Beauty but at a higher pitch, Ludwig's 5x14" and 6.5x14" Brass models are hammered using the same process as Ludwig Timpani to expand their playable range. Though each has a similar hammering pattern, no two are exactly alike and vary slightly in tonality. Choose from 5"x14" and 6.5"x14" models.
