  • What a killer snare

    As reviewed by Chad Salvaggio on 2/1/2010

    What can you really say about a snare that cover's all style's for a very reasonable price to preformance ratio? Well, shall I start with an old fashioned THANK YOU! I must say as one who has a few high dollar/versitile snare drum's, this one moved to the front of the "line" as soon as I played it! Honestly, unless you're not a fan of metal shelled snare's, I urge you to check this drum out A.S.A.P., the size 7 x 13 is one of the most versitile size's on the market, and this drum can do it all except maybe Blue Grass(which doesn't usually have drum's anyway) a killer snare all around and worth EVERY PENNY! Once again, Thank You Ludwig for making a sweetheart of a snare, and Thank You Guitar Center for great pricing and a smooth transaction. A true win win scenerio!

  • Great snare!

    As reviewed by TOM HARRISON on 10/17/2012

    Bought this snare to upgrade my birch snare that came with my Element Lacquer kit (which is a very decent stock snare ). With the batter tuned high I'm very happy with the tone, feel, and overall sound of this drum. I've always liked the sound of the metal Ludwig snare drums and this drum did not disappoint me. Definitely a nice upgrade. Great crack, nice sounding rolls, and I really like the timbre of this drum.

  • amazing!

    As reviewed by punkdude908 on 1/7/2009

    this snare is great for the money. it's like a black beauty but half the price and its still a ludwig! all i did was change the batter head to a remo emperor x. this snare sounds amazing. a great alternative to the black beauty. i have the 6.5x14 and its LOUD! it cuts through everything and compliments my kit. its super sensitive. i would recommend this snare to anyone.
