I spent roughly six months doing copious amounts of research on my next (and probably final) kit and finally decided on the Classic Maples......... I saw various degrees of lug splay on every modern Ludwig drum I tried out at the local drum shops. :-)

Contact LUDWIG directly, that'd be something cool to ad to the forum and we'd like to know what they think about the design flaw.

Aftermarket hoops will fit, but they won't correct the problem, which is a mathematical lug to shell oversight.
