Re: Are Ludwig Supraphonics really that good a snare
Different strokes for different folks. I would never try to hang "best" on any drum, because sound preferences are subjective. But I think the Supra does what it does extremely well.
Also, if you're playing a similar snare drum by another manufacturer, it's worth pointing out that it's probably a copy of the Supra.
But, of course, if you don't like it, you shouldn't play it. There are a lot of alternatives.
