You can Google "Ludwig" for a better answer, but basically it's a large musical instrument company that resulted from Conn-Selmer buying Ludwig-Musser. Ludwig is the drum and timpani brand, Musser is the mallet instrument brand, Selmer is the reed instrument brand, and Conn is the brass instrument brand. It's a little more complicated than that, but those are the basics.

Conn-Selmer (a divsion of Steinway) is the parent company of Ludwig-Musser (which itself is the result of a merger between the Ludwig Drum Company and the Musser Marimba Company).
