Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk has officially joined the Ludwig artist roster
Ludwig has announced that Rage Against The Machine drummer, Brad Wilk has officially joined its artist roster.
The move comes after a period of speculation amongst fans after Wilk - who has been associated with Gretsch drums throughout his career in Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and Prophets of Rage - first posted photos of an Amber Ludwig Vistalite to his Instagram page in March.
Ludwig made the announcement via social media, pointing out that while he is new to the roster, Wilk has been a collector of vintage Ludwig drums for a while.
“Ludwig is honored to welcome Brad Wilk, acclaimed drummer for Rage Against the Machine, as the latest addition to the Ludwig Artist Roster.
“Brad is celebrated not only for his impact behind the kit but as a presence and voice for social change. The band recently raised $475,000 from their first 3 shows which will be donated to reproductive rights organizations in Wisconsin and Illinois.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Brad to build the sound and look he envisioned for Rage Against the Machine’s return to the stage for the first time in 11 years.
“From his “People of the Sun” drum set, to his extensive vintage Ludwig collection, the Ludwig sound has always been a staple for Brad. We are proud to continue to craft the sound and next chapter of his Ludwig Legacy.”
