The Ludwig Mahogany Limited Edition is limited to 200 Club Date kits. It is designed like the regular Club Date series drums but this one is made from a Retro Spec idea. They have a 7-ply shell made of a 2-ply interior and exterior of African Mahogany and a 3-ply poplar core. Ludwig has four premium finishes selected for it.
The African Mahogany is the specialty with these kits. The regular Club Date drums have 2-ply maple outer, 3-ply poplar core and 2-ply maple inner plies. The flat Imperial lugs made their debut on Ludwig drums in the 30's. The Club Date model was introduced in 1948 and was a very popular configuration into the 70's.
