Legacy Exotic 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple, 1-ply reinforcement rings, Exotic Sumauma outer.
By applying many of the same shell making properties we have refined over the past century, Ludwig’s flagship professional drum line is going to the next level. Introducing new Legacy Exotic, a stunning rethink to a modern classic. After locating several felled logs from Africa and Australia, three exotic hardwoods made the final cut for their visual elegance and tonal quality: Sumauma, Lacewood, and Black Limba. Combining these woods with inner and outer plys of North American Maple and the traditional single Poplar core ply, the rich sonic warmth of Legacy’s shell moves to a new tonal spectrum. Legacy’s trademark rounded bearing edge creates a perfect compliment to the 1/4” single-ply Maple reinforcement rings. Throughout 2009, four finishes in each of these woods will be introduced. These inaugural Legacy Exotic kits will be in limited supply, making them the perfect addition to Ludwig’s illustrious vintage tradition.
