Nicknamed "The Brick" for its sheer weight.

2.5mm triple-flanged hoops and separate tension Keystone lugs are added to the equation for higher tuning capabilities.

  • My live drum

    As reviewed by Jarid Chism on 11/8/2012

    This snare drum is perfect. It's loud, it great has a great tone at any tension, and it's heavy. The snare strainer is a little flimsy, but, i was gonna change it anyway, but other then that, it's extremely well built. Once I bought this drum, I sold almost all my other ones, this is the only drum i play live.

  • great drum

    As reviewed by Aaron Martin on 2/21/2012

    just recently picked this drum up and it is a cannon! i tuned the top head loose with some muffling and it was instant don henley. medium tension gave it a great crack, but my favorite tuning is cranked fairly tight, very similar to vinnie paul's snare sound on "cowboys from hell". the drums is very well built, especially for the price. it is noticebly heavier than a mid 80's 14"x6.5" pearl steel snare i have, and it has an extended snare system. the only (small) complaint i have is that the strainer seems a bit cheap compared to the rest of the drums features. maybe i'm being picky, but it is the only reason i didn't give it five stars. highly recommended!

  • i'll give it a 3.5 star.

    As reviewed by MATTHEW SCHWERIN on 5/12/2014

    I was in the market for a snare and playing this in the store's showroom, it sounded good and the price is right. The store owner told me "since it's made overseas, ludwig can give incredible quality with this drum while having an amazing price". As I said the price was right and it sounded good, so I picked it up. I have to say, I haven't been blown away by this drum, even after replacing the hoops. It definitely CAN sound amazing, but I've found it rather difficult to tune and also that it doesn't hold a tuning extremely well. It is true that I hit quite hard (especially on the snare), so perhaps a less hard-hitting drummer would have better luck. For a beginner to moderate drummer, I'd say this snare is a pretty good bet. For someone more advanced and playing gigs regularlywho is fairly picky about tonality, sound, and reliability, I'd probably suggest saving up your cash a little bit longer and going a more expensive route. I must admit, I find myself wishing I'd done that. 3.5/5 stars.
