Comments about Ludwig Classic Series Hybrid Black Oak Shell Snare Drum:

I had been looking at this snare since it was first released by Ludwig a few months ago. I finally was able to see one at the local GC. After taking it off the rack and playing it with a kit set up in the drum area I was hooked. I play Ludwig exclusively and have since the mid 80's. I have three kits and seven snares...everything from an old classic maple to the "Brick"...I also have a 8" Supralite that is killer as well. I bought this drum and took it straight to the gig since my guy Christian at GC had it tuned perfectly. It came new with Ludwig WeatherMasters so I knew it was good to go. I played this snare full out for the entire show and it did not disappoint. Great Ludwig sound and when mic'ed it really rocked. Total American Ludwig quality top to bottom. Looks beautiful and sounds even better. One fan at the show commented that this was the best looking snare he had seen from Ludwig. This will be my new work horse snare and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone who wants a top of the line American made Ludwig snare. This is a real hit from the Monroe NC Ludwig plant.

    Comments about Ludwig Classic Series Hybrid Black Oak Shell Snare Drum:

    I play in two different bands. One is mostly a cover band and we play Rolling Stones, Beatles, Dylan songs. This is the PERFECT snare drum for that band. I also play in an alt. country and folk band and I'm amazed with how sensitive and responsive it is in music that is much more quiet. You can't go wrong with this drum! I've been looking to purchase an 8 x !4 snare for a long time. I made a great choice with this drum!
