Limited Edition



Our Perspective:
This 7 piece Limited Edition Smith Drum kit just came in on consignment. All 7 piieces have a badge stating: # 1 of 250, #2 of 250.....up to #7 of 250. The sizes are 8,10,12,14,16 hanging toms, a 22" bass drum and 14" snare drum. The drums are in excellent condition, sound great and are truly a unique set!! The shells are reported to be Jasper shells made of maple/Gum Wood. The workmanship is a grade above. The Smith company was a small group of custom builders paying close attention to the small details during the build process, resulting in great sounding drums. It also comes with a great Gibraltar rack.

Just received this:
Hey George, just a note on these orange Smith limited edition drums. The label indicates that the shells are not keller maple, they are genuine vintage jasper maple/gum shells (VJMG) except for the snare. Same exact shells used by Gretsch from the same shell factory in Jasper Indiana. Smith made 250 drums for Sam ash using this shell and the vintage lug for a limited run. This must have been part of that run. Also, they had access to the jasper shell because Smith did much of the custom artist work for Gretsch (little known fact) and had a direct buying relationship with the Jasper factory in Jasper Indiana. Just thought you might like the info. I used to work there.

Modern History of Ludwig:
The 80’s saw many significant changes for Ludwig Drums. Ludwig Drum Co. would sell to the Selmer Corporation in 1981. This brought on changes in design, concepts, and the relocation of the production facility. Ludwig production would continue to grown under Selmer. The Ludwig catalog would advance, utilizing an array of new materials and ideas previously nonexistent to the drum market.

Designers and companies alike began to understand the science of shell makeup and mold. Various woods and molds determined sonic qualities and characteristics unfamiliar to drummers. This rise in varying shell designs became present as of the late 70’s and pushed forward for Ludwig.

Ludwig Classic shells of the 1980’s took on several changes that differed/repeated pre-existing outfits. The 6-ply maple shell design that debuted in 1976 carried on into the early part 1980’s. The Modular bracket, another 70’s era innovation, took on more recognition in the 1980’s. New Blue/Olive badges with rounded lower left and upper right corners (debuting in 1979) came to represent the close of one era, while another came.

By 1984, Ludwig Classic shells had a new badge marking the end of Ludwig Chicago era drums. A larger “modern” keystone badge was put on Classic shells and by 1985. When the Chicago plant closed, this badge read “Monroe, NC”, and no longer “Chicago USA”. Ludwig classic shells underwent another change in 1988, offering a 4-ply maple shell known as the “Super Classic”. Ludwig Classic Shells underwent another transition in shell design in the 90's. Quickly doing away with the 4-ply “Super Classic Shell”, Ludwig kept the focus on one Classic Maple design with a hefty 9-ply all maple shell debuting in 1998 along with the Classic Birch series Drums. In 2001, Ludwig redesigned the Classic Maple shells into a 7-ply maple mold dubbed the Classic Maple Series. The rise in popularity of vintage Ludwig maple/poplar/maple shells of the late 60's/early 70's resulted in its reintroduction as the Legacy Classic series. The Classic Birch series was dropped in 2009 for its decline in demand.
