In the tradition of Ludwig's "Victorious" drums of the 1940s, the Van Buren showcases a unique 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.

The Legacy Mahogany Van Buren's shell has a 1/16" mahogany outer ply, 1/8" poplar core ply, and 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.

Bearing Edge
The bearing edge has a 30-degree inner cut with a 1/4" radius round over. Producing a pure, well-rounded sonic footprint, Legacy Series revives the distinctive sound that set the standard for popular music throughout the 20th Century.

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.
