The 14th annual MIPA polled 100 magazines from all over the world for the best musical instruments and audio equipment of 2012/2013 in over 40 categories. Designed for the touring professional, Atlas Pro Hardware’s innovative function and sleek design received the honour for 'Best Drum Hardware'.
During Musikmesse Frankfurt
2103, Ludwig’s Atlas Pro Hardware received the coveted MIPA
(Musikmesse International Press Award) for Drum Hardware. Ludwig’s radically advanced Atlas Pro Hardware line design convinced the proposing, nominating and voting magazines.
“Receiving the MIPA award is truly an honour. Having the opportunity to revamp Ludwig’s hardware offering was a dream come true, and it is exciting to see our designs appreciated by drummers all over the world,” shared Joshua Allen, Lead Engineer for Ludwig Drums.
In addition to the sleek design, included in the Atlas Pro line are more patent-pending innovations such as the Centroid 3-point Hi-Hat stability system, Pillar Clutch snare drum stand, the classic look and smooth feel of the Atlas Pro double bass drum pedal.
Launched in 2012, Atlas Pro already won Best in Show honours at Winter NAMM 2012.
