The LUDWIG Club Date Special Edition drums shell set is featured here in the “Jazzette” configuration, the smallest-size version of the Club Date sets that includes a 14”x18” bass drum, a 14”x14” floor tom and an 8”x12” tom, a great little bebop set and perfect for small stages and venues that still delivers a powerful and lively sound.
Also available is the larger Club Date S.E. ”Fab 3” set, which includes a 14”x22” bass drum, a 16”x16” floor tom and a 9”x13” tom as well as the mid-sized version called the “Downbeat” set which puts a 14”x20” kick with a 14”x14” floor tom and an 8”x12” tom.
All three Club Date S. E. versions utilize the classic-styled, bass drum-mounted Rail-Mount Consolette Tom Mount system along with the Vibra-Band suspension mount for the tom drum. Very sturdy and widely-positionable, this tom mount also eliminates any cross-vibration between drums.
With old-school specs and modern swagger, the new Club Date Special Edition drum sets are made for the gigging drummer with an ear for classic Ludwig sound, created here with the Club Date Hybrid 6-ply Cherry and Gum Wood shells. Club Date’s dual-tension lugs reduce the amount of weight on each shell, allowing the drums to speak with delicate subtlety at the slightest touch and to open up big and loud as played. The rounded dual 35-degree shell bearing edges also let the drums sing clearly at any dynamic level.
A low price makes Club Date the solution for the collector or vintage drums enthusiast an exciting and very playable alternative to vintage gear and in classic LUDWIG sound and style and also to provide you with some portability within your needs. The “Fab 3” set will do you well if you need big drum sounds in a fairly loud situation. The “Jazzette” set, with its 14”x18” bass drum, is an easy move, takes up little space and is perfect for small stages and venues, as well as being a great small jazz outfit. Then the in-between “Downbeat” set is there to do it all and to do it all well.
