Default Re: Are Ludwig Supraphonics really that good a snare

Well stated. I've used a Supra for my main gigging snare since the late 70's. I've used others to be sure, but I keep coming back to the Supra. And, mine have always been the 5". I currently own a smooth Bronze, 2 aluminum (a 60's and an 80's) and now a 1980ish Acro-all in 5" depth. They are versatile, crisp, responsive and are my sound. If they are not someone else's sound, so be it, and that's perfectly fine. That's why Howard Johnson had 36 flavors-to each, his own.
