7-Ply Maple Shell for Balanced Tonality

This Ludwig snare is constructed with a 7-ply, 6 mm maple shell formulated to provide optimal resonance and tonality. The center core is sandwiched between inner and outer plies using Ludwig's proprietary RFST molding technology. This ensures even curing across the entire drum for consistent sound and performance. The result is a snare with balanced tonality that blends nicely into any musical situation, from rock to jazz and beyond. The maple shell gives you a versatile drum that always delivers.

45-Degree Bearing Edges for Wide Tuning Range

The bearing edges on this Classic Maple snare are cut to a 45-degree angle, which is critical for achieving a wide tuning range and maximum sustain. This edge profile allows you to fine-tune the drum's sound to suit your preferences and playing style. The edges are hand-sanded for a smooth, even surface that enables effortless head seating. You'll appreciate the control and customization enabled by the 45-degree bearing edge.

Triple-Flanged Hoops and Vintage Snare Wires for Articulation

This Ludwig snare comes equipped with 2.3 mm triple-flanged hoops for solid rimshots and improved tuning stability. Combined with the 18-strand vintage snare wires, you get crisp, balanced articulation and snare response. The wires are fully adjustable too thanks to the P88 throw-off. As a drummer, you'll love the articulate sound and dialed-in snare response this drum delivers.
