As home to many Ludwig artists and drummers, Nashville is an essential part of the Ludwig Legacy. Having lost many artist sets, as well as Ludwig's personal backline stock stored at Sound Check Studios in the flood, Ludwig is grateful to know that though much of their equipment did not fare well under water, all of the Ludwig artists and their families are safe.

The Ludwig Drum Company invite any and all drummers in Nashville to reach out to Gary Forkum and his talented staff at Fork’s, see what we have to offer the playing professional, and replace your damaged gear with a new Ludwig kit to take advantage of this limited time offer.

A free Snare Drum is pretty small in the scope of all that has been lost in this disaster, but Ludwig sincerely hopes to be able to help more in the coming months.
