Artist Re­la­tions Man­ager at the Lud­wig Drum Com­pany in the USA

Would it be right to say you are in­creas­ing the out­put from the US, Mon­roe, plant? “Ab­so­lutely. We are proud of our 109-year-old USA op­er­a­tion, and we want to con­tinue that. We were the first USA man­u­fac­turer to mould our own shells. The moulds we use to­day have formed count­less le­gendary kits, and th­ese moulds pro­duce our Neu­Sonic shells.” So the moulds used for the Neu­Sonic are those his­toric ones brought down from Chicago? “Yes, they date back to the late 1960s. The ones prior to that were cy­cled out be­fore our most cur­rent ones. Neu­Sonic fea­tures a new hy­brid shell and new pro­pri­etary fin­ishes.” Where does the Neu­Sonic sit in theLud­wig hi­er­ar­chy of se­ries? “Neu­Sonic sits right in the mid­dle. It is built for as­pir­ing pro­fes­sion­als, week­end war­riors, and any drum­mer look­ing for a kit to put sig­nif­i­cant mileage on and ex­pect­ing to get ex­cep­tional re­sults in qual­ity, func­tion­al­ity and sound with­out break­ing the bank.” What’s com­ing next? “Ex­pect some new fin­ishes for next year. The size range may also ex­pand in the fu­ture.”
