Default NOW WITH SOUND CLIP!! Ludwig 6.5 X 14 Hammered Bronze Snare...

The title says it all. It is brand new and I have yet to tune it up and rock.
I LOVE the look of this drum.

hands down one of the best sounding snares i've ever heard. this along with the dw edge, and the OCDP modern classic snares. nice pick. a sound file would be respected. by the way, is this a super sensitive? or just a regular ludwig snare? thanks-alex

It's a regular, a super sensitive would have snare wires that extended all the way to the edge of the shell and have a HUGE strainer mechanism.

HURRY!
It looks like some madman is about to run off with your new snare. He even took the time to pose maniacally with the drum and take some pictures! The horror!!!

That's a sweet drum and you can tune it a variety of ways like any of the good Supras. You'll loooooove it as F.Z. used to say.

Congrats on the new drum. After watching the YES live DVD with Alan White this morning, I decided March was a good month for a new Ludwig snare also ! Both of his sound great for acoustic or all out loud rock band. The DVD is called Songs From Tsongas...Enjoy!

FANTASTIC!!!!

Scrumtrulescent!!!

This drum is my next snare purchase, but I'm getting the tube lugs...I just like 'em!
And, I can't think of many things better to spend $450 on haha!

I just want to get one other drum before it, but it should be in May.

I love my Bronze Black Beauty ('89), so I know I'll love this one.

Is yours pretty heavy?
I saw one of these last year at a shop and it was heavy, and my Bronze BB is kinda heavy.
....I like a heavier snare anyway, just curious....

Man, seeing that just makes my heart flutter....haha!

GREAT PICK & ENJOY IT!!!

That's probably the most beautiful thing I've ever seen...

...and the drum looks OK too, I guess.

The recording is a bit crude but you'll get the idea. This drum sounds really fine. No doubt.

No, not really heavy. Definitely not as heavy as some of the Sonor drums I've seen. Here's a sound clip"

I absolutely love the sound of that drum!!
It has that classic Ludwig tone, and the rims shots are to die for.

PS Great hands and chops as well.

Have you played in the military or with a drum and bugle corp? Your drumming sounds very regimented.

Thanks for the compliment. No, I've never played in the military or anything like that. I've studied rudiments and that comes out in my snare playing.
Thanks again.

ArtyZ,
Thanks for the response. If you don't mind a have a few questions.
1. Where did you buy that drum?
2. How much did it cost?
3. How do you tune your snare? I like what I hear on the sound clip.
4. Did you polish that drum or did it come that way new?

Thanks. Tina; Tama Girl

Thanks for the interest, Tina.

Top and bottom head tuned equally to about a medium tension. The snares are fairly tight but not choked.
The drum came as pictured.

Looks awesome! I always had the feeling that metal snare drum don`t have any warmth or chartacter. But since I tried some I really fell in love with those.

PS: Okay, checked out the sound file...wow, with this medium tension it sounds better than I imagined! It`s dry but not death I think, has a nice ring and bite! What heads do you use?

The heads are the stock Ludwig Weathermasters that came on the drum. Those heads are not so bad. I'll probably replace them with Remo Ambassadors shortly as I've always had good luck with them.

Arty Z,

I think that the drum sounds good as is. Do you really think that putting Remos on will make a drastic change in the sound?
If it were me, I wouldn't change a thing. I like that drum.

I'm not sure that it would be a drastic change. That's one reason that I'm not in a hurry to do so. I might just do it as an experiment to hear what happens. I've always liked and used Remo heads. Yeah, it will probably happen.
