6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

About Ludwig Drums

Established in 1909 by William F. & Theobald Ludwig, the Ludwig Drum Company has since progressed to become one of the world's leading drum manufacturers. William had been a professional drummer, performing and touring with circuses and shows along with occasional gigs. The brothers decided to open a drum shop in Chicago, and called it Ludwig & Ludwig. The company began with a concept for the design and manufacture of a bass drum pedal, but quickly progressed, adding new products to the catalogue including snare drums and timpani.

After Theobald Ludwig died in 1918, William continued by himself, and by 1923, Ludwig had become one of the largest drum manufacturers in the world, employing 240 workers. In the late 20's, Ludwig & Ludwig was sold to C.G. Conn instrument company, and despite staying on to run the company which now belonged to Conn, William Ludwig eventually left to start a new company which he named after his initials: the WFL Drum Company, in 1937. During WWII, the company was producing drums on a small scale but soon grew in size to become one of the main competitors for Ludwig & Ludwig. In the following years, Ludwig & Ludwig stopped producing drums altogether, meaning William and his son Bill Jr. were able to buy the Ludwig trademark back from Conn.

During the 1960's, Ludwig began to receive huge amounts of publicity and their products started to become much more widely recognised throughout the drumming industry. Ludwig started to introduce more and more products to their ranges, with key artists such as John Bonham from Led Zeppelin performing on Ludwig drums and gaining yet more publicity and recognition.

Since the 1960's and 1970's, Ludwig has maintained its status as one of the most popular drum manufacturers in the world. The manufacturing facility remains in Monroe, NC, offering huge ranges of drums and accessories, including full drum kits, snares, percussion, hardware, accessories, and even merchandise. The company also celebrated its 100th anniversary, releasing yet more flagship drumming equipment. Ludwig's snares are often considered some of the best in the business, holding the title of the world's most toured and recorded snares ever. Offering sounds which are often imitated but never duplicated, the snares are available in a huge variety of materials, sizes, finishes, and with different components. Every snare offers unique qualities, but they all share one property. A truly unbeatable sound.

With over one hundred years in the profession of percussion, Ludwig have provided high-quality drums to an extensive list of renowned drummers the world over. Follow in the footsteps of the greats and pave your path to percussion glory through a vast selection of tones, styles and sizes designed to get the best out of your playing.
