The WFLIII 1728N Series Maple Snare Drums are refreshingly nuanced and alive, offering the drummer a wide range of tuning options and dynamics for every style of music.

With its sharp attack, warm tones and melodic sustain, nothing beats the musicality and playability of quality maple shells. Over the last 100 years, several configurations of maple shells have been produced, but the one that remains a favorite among drummers who know, is the 3-ply maple/poplar/maple shell developed by William F Ludwig Sr. over 60 years ago. Now, William F Ludwig III, has masterfully redesigned this iconic shell, with all its musical nuance, in WFLIII Generations Maple Shells.

The response has been overwhelming. Drummers of all musical styles are raving about the beautiful tone of these shells. WFLIII Generations shells are made in the USA and constructed of North American Hard Maple on the outside and inside with a Poplar inner core. Shells are cross-grain, heat pressed for strength and roundness. Hand finished 45 degree round-over bearing edges ensure maximum head to shell contact and hand-hewn snare beds provide precise snare contact on all snare drums.
