Ludwig

The Ludwig Drum Company was founded in 1909 by William F Ludwig and Theobald Ludwig in Chicago.  The company started with a concept for the design and manufacturing of a functional bass drum pedal. Drum making soon followed with the development of snare drums and a revolutionary design of Balanced Action tuning timpani in 1916.  In 1917, Ludwig was contracted to build rope drums to support the World War. On February 9th, 1964, Ringo Starr and The Beatles changed everything for the Ludwig Drum Company when they performed live on the Ed Sullivan Show in front of millions.  Ringo’s Black Oyster Pearl 4 piece drumset prominently displayed the Ludwig name for all to see.  Ludwig had arrived.


From that point, the company continued to expand.  The Musser Mallet Company was acquired by Ludwig in 1965 creating a “Total Percussion” company that included mallet instruments and drums. Now a part of the Conn-Selmer family of brands, Ludwig is a prominent player in the drum-manufacturing game.
