Default Re: Are Ludwig Supraphonics really that good a snare

I like the 402 when I hear people play it, but when I do, I get nothing from it. Might sound great out front, but behind it, not for me.

Same with the 400.

Are they able to get a great sound for any music? Yes.
That's why they are so highly rated.

I prefer my Brass and Bronze 6.5's TBH, but I have owned the 402 (3 different times), and 400. They are well performing snares, but not the sound for me.

The Ultracast snare is a whole different animal than a 400 or 402.
A heavy die cast shell, and die cast hoops are going to perform a lot differently than a 1.2 spun aluminum shell, and thinner hoops. Apples and oranges.
