Luwig Evolution Mapple set 7 pcs included hardware no seat 1599



Warm, cutting maple shells

North American maple is used in boutique drum kits all over the world. This same wood is the basis for the Evolution Maple’s pro-grade shells, offering a warm, velvety sustain and crisp, modern punch for all styles and applications.

A step up from the Element Evolution

2016’s Element Evolution kits are a tremendous value for beginning and intermediate players. The Evolution Maple offers the same value to the pro drumming community: a true performance shell pack at a price you won’t be afraid to tour with.

Ships with Remo UT series batter heads

Sweetwater always reminds our customers to factor in heads when budgeting a new kit. Fortunately, this is merely optional with the Ludwig Evolution Maple. A whole outfit of Remo UT batter heads adds to the savings you’ll enjoy. You get Pinstripe Clears on all the toms for balance and control under close mics, and an Ambassador Coated on the snare drum for warmth and depth of character. This translates to dependable tone and tuning from the day your kit arrives.

Product Description

A Pro Kit at a Student Price

A decade ago, a kit like the Ludwig Evolution Maple would have cost twice as much. But today, this pro-level shell pack comes in at a student price. The Evolution Maple’s lacquered shells are made from 100% North American maple and thanks to 45° bearing edges and triple-flanged hoops, sport a great modern tone with a satisfying pop and warm, moderate sustain. Combined, these qualities make the Evolution Maple a heck of a kit for your next tour or studio date. Adding to the Evolution Maple’s value is a complete set of Remo UT batter heads — Pinstripe Clears on the toms and an Ambassador Coated on the snare — for a balanced feel across the kit. The Ludwig Evolution Maple is available in four lacquered finishes to suit most tastes.
