With old-school spec and modern swagger, the new Club Date Special
Edition kit is made for the gigging drummer with an ear for classic
Ludwig sound. Club Date’s dual-tension lugs reduce the amount of weight on each shell, allowing the drums to speak with delecate
subtlety at the slightest touch, and open further as played. Three
configured shell packs, four sparkle finishes, and a low price tag make Club Date the solution for the collector in need of a playable alternative to vintage gear.
The Club Date kit originated as a lower-cost alternative to Ludwig’s original Super Classic Series. Debuting in 1962, Club Date featured the same shell as Super Classic, but the center-mounted, dual-sided lugs required less manufacturing time.
