Rock, Pop, Country, Jazz, Classical Players All Drawing Inspiration From Drums Crafted By William F. Ludwig III, The Only Living Ludwig In The Drum Business

“The WFLIII Drums kit is close to euphoric sounding to me. They are the best drums I’ve ever played, and I’ve been doing this for five decades.” - Bobby "T" Torello

Drummers across a wide spectrum of musical genres are resonating with the sound and quality of WFLIII Drums by William F. Ludwig III, the only living Ludwig in the drum business. Touring, studio and garage band musicians playing Rock to Country to Jazz and everything in between are discovering their new favorite instruments.

The company’s expanding roll of endorsed drummers include Bobby "T" Torello (Johnny Winter, Classic Drummer Hall of Fame), Scott Williamson (Nashville Session Player), Kofi Baker (The Cream Experience), Greg Herrington (Martina McBride), Adam Ferraioli (Get the Led Out), Joe Corsello (Sonny Rollins, Educator/Author), Teddy Boldt (for KING & COUNTRY), Kelvin Sugars (Kings & Associates), Brian Beihl (Big Daddy Weave) and more.

“The WFLIII Drums kit is close to euphoric sounding to me,” says Bobby “T.” “They are the best drums I’ve ever played, and I’ve been doing this for five decades.”

“What I love about WFLIII Drums is that every time I hit the drum, it sounds like the way I think a drum is supposed to sound,” adds Williamson. “It’s just really warm, there’s great stick attack, I don’t have to work really hard to tune the toms to sound the way I want them to. There’s an even symmetry around the bearing edge. Every time we’ve set a kit up anywhere, it’s always been an improvement over what was there.”

Founding WFLIII Drums with a similar, uncompromising vision shared by his father and grandfather, Ludwig III (“Bill III”) says, “We don’t just make drums and percussion tools, we craft them—and make every customer feel special. I want WFLIII Drums to be forward thinking and innovative. That's exactly the way my grandfather and dad would want it."

Continuing to innovate, and personally sharing his new WFLIII Drums finishes and lug hardware during the recent NAMM event in Los Angeles, Ludwig III will travel to Vancouver, BC Feb 20-24 for the inaugural Drumeo Festival followed by a hometown appearance May 16-17 at the Chicago Drum Show, one of the largest and longest-running drum exhibitions in the world. Kofi Baker, son of the late Cream drummer Ginger Baker, will be the featured clinician at WFLIII Drums’ Chicago Drum Show booth.

“I worked with Ginger for decades, and now working with his son is really special,” says Ludwig III.
“During the Chicago Drum Show, we also plan to do an instore event with our local dealer, Mike’s Drum Shop in Villa Park. We might even reveal a new drum finish,” he teases.
