Ludwig’s wood snares have remained popular throughout the company’s nearly 100-year history, and were the drums that helped establish the fat backbeat and deep grooves of pop and R&B music in the 1970’s and 80’s.

The Classic Maple all-maple shell features the clarity and warmth players have come to expect from maple drums, plus the projection and musicality that has maintained Ludwig’s reputation for snare drum innovation and excellence. Available in a wide selection of sounds, sizes and styles, from piccolo, standard and deep models. From lacquer, exotic and wrapped finishes, Ludwig Classic Maple snares are the new Classics of today.

Features a 7-Ply Maple Shell, 45 Degree Bearing Edge, P85AC Throw Off and Butt Plate, 2.3mm Steel Triple Flanged Hoops, Ludwig Weather Master Coated Batter Head and Ludwig Weather Master Clear Resonant Head.
