Legacy Mahogany Van Buren Series

Legacy Mahogany Van Buren Series

In the tradition of Ludwig's “Victorious” drums of the 1940s, the Van Buren showcases a new vintage mahogany stain complete with inlaid maple hoops. An augmented presentation of a classic African Mahogany natural finish that celebrates the likeness of Ludwig’s first ever drum badge and Chicago showroom. Powerful raw tone couples with a vintage inspired trimming. This outfit is limited to 2019, 110th anniversary production.



1/16" Mahogany Outer Ply, 1/8" Poplar Core Ply, 1/16" Mahogany Inner Ply with 1/4" Solid Maple Reinforcement Rings.

The key to Legacy's classic tone begins with a cross-laminated American Poplar center ply to lend focus to the warm rich low-end "woody" tones of inner/outer Mahogany plies. This unique shell combination is further stabilized by a specially rounded bearing edge with 1" solid maple reinforcement rings.

Historic Fact

Ludwig and Ludwig's 3-ply shell formula was unveiled in 1923; at the time touted as being built "...in accordance with the recognized correct principles used in the manufacture of airplanes." This classic construction evolved into a sound that captured the attention of generations of drummers.
