Active Music Introduce Ludwig’s New Products For 2021
Firstly, there is the addition of two new snare drums to the popular Acrolite Series; the Acro-Brass and Acro-Copper. Using Ludwig’s world-renowned unique USA shell manufacturing process, they are currently available in a 14×6.5” size. These new additions are going to be very popular especially for those looking for that slightly drier sound.
Secondly, has been the launch of two limited editions kits for 2021.
First up is the Legacy Mahogany Black Cat kit, produced in homage to the historic Black Panther Kit of the 1960’s. This Legacy Mahogany kit is made from Ludwig’s legendary 3-ply Mahogany/Poplar shell with solid Maple 1⁄4” reinforcement rings. It is fitted with satin black Maple counter hoops with silver sparkle inlays on all drums. It comes in two different size options; Fab (22×14, 13×9, 16×16) and Pro Beat (24×14, 13×9, 16×16) and comes fitted with Ludwig’s limited-edition badge. A matching 14×6.5” snare drum is also available. The snare features the same Maple counter hoops with chrome claws and is fitted with 10 flat Imperial lugs, a P88 throw off and P35 butt plate.
Production on both sizes, and the snare drum, is strictly limited so any Ludwig collectors out there will need to move quickly to secure this stunning kit and snare drum.
Following on from the Black Cat is the visually stunning Island Sunset Vistalite. Manufactured in the pattern A style with Green, Yellow and Red bands, this one is for both the Ludwig player and collector alike. Available in a Fab configuration (22×14, 13×9, 16×16) with a matching 14×6.5 snare available separately should you want to complete the Island Sunset look. Production of these is extremely limited to just 35 of each worldwide.
Completing the line-up for 2021 is the addition of a European Exclusive finish, Bamboo Strata. Available on Classic Maple pre-configured kits in 18” Jazzette, 20” Downbeat, 22” Fab and 24” Pro Beat sizes.
