Premium wood snare drum made from aged elm and maple, part of a limited run of 40

Limited to only 40 pieces and available exclusively in the USA, this Ludwig Aged Exotic Carpathian Elm snare drum is all class, all the way. Featuring 10 alternating plies of elm and maple, plus a 5-ply reinforcement ring made from the same woods, this drum offers deep, pure wood tone and a rich look to match. The swirling elm veneer is finished with a gloss lacquer that brings out the complex grains. And thanks to the super-narrow tube lugs, nothing gets in the way of showing off this finish for all to see. The wood for this drum comes from a private stock aged for 30 years, then crafted into these 40 special drums in Monroe, North Carolina.

Ludwig pulled no punches on the hardware, either. This kit features premium nickel die-cast hoops, nickel-plated tube lugs, the P88 throw-off and P35 butt plate. It comes with a Ludwig floral script logo bag to keep it safe for years to come.
