Re: Are Ludwig Supraphonics really that good a snare
In my opinion, they are known for being so good, because they all seem to be able to achieve a good usable sound with minimal effort, and it just sort of "works." IMHO, it is one the most distinctive and unique sounding snares, and they always seem to sound nice. They aren't everyone's cup of tea, as some want more distinction in their snare sound. I wouldn't mind having one in my snare arsenal eventually, but the sound isn't such a need right now, as I have a nice sized collection of snares that all have their own distinct sound. To me, Supras are also pretty versatile, ad are a great choice for someone who wants a nice all purpose versatile snare.
