    Ludwig Neusonic 2021

    Beautiful roadworthy / durable drums. Ludwig made in the U.S Maple/Cherry is a winner IMO.

    Ludwig Neusonic 2021

    A longer note is possible on a 20x14, just listen closer ;-). The original spurs were a cool design (although nonadjustable). The Elite spurs are a lot more versatile in that regard.

    Ludwig Neusonic 2021

    Depends on your playing style I suppose, whatever wrks. I like the adjustability of Elite spurs, proven to be tried & true on the higher end Ludwig kits.

    Ludwig Classic Maple, Best Drums Ever Made?

    It will be interesting to see what DW does with Slingerland! Ludwig Classic Maple do sound great, The DW Performance series were a big surprise (in a good way). Which drum companies are making their own shells? That makes a difference imo.

    Diamond by Craviotto ~ New for 2021 Product Video with Sam Bacco

    The marketing term "All Maple shells" is a bit of a gray area in the drum industry. Who is manufacturing the actual shells? Are the Craviotto Diamond series Keller shells? North American maple?
