    Ludwig Classic Maple floor tom size with leg mounts?

    Waiting for delivery on a new Ludwig Classic Maple kit. Checking out case options as I wait.

    My drum sounds like a basketball!!!

    I recently scored a used set of ludwig classic maples; they are about six months old and they are gorgeous. The only problem is that they sound like I am hitting a basketball when I hit them hard. The floor toms have one air hole while the rack toms have two. The shells are very thin -...
