Ludwig’s Supraphonic LM402 snare was drum God John Bonham's go-to snare and is featured on tons of Led Zeppelin albums. It features a chrome-plated aluminum shell that produces a sharp snare tone and can cut through any instrument mix.

Versatile, Famed Snare Drum

The Suprasonic LM402 delivers that powerful and articulate attack heard on multiple hit songs from the '60s to the present, crossing over musical styles and genres. No matter the style, the Supraphonic LM402 snare drum has the sound you crave.

High-Quality Components

The LM402 features 1.2 mm shells that deliver a quick response and truly nuanced playing. Triple-flanged steel hoops combined with a P-85 throw-off create fool-proof tuning for finding your ideal sound. With a depth of 6.5", the Supraphonic delivers bold tones with powerful projection.

Born in the USA

The Ludwig Supraphonic snare drum was custom developed right here in the USA. Ludwig snare drums have dominated stages and studios since 1911 and are a world-renowned company. Product production may be available overseas for a lesser cost, but Ludwig proudly crafts and sells high-quality drums right here at home. The proceeds of that drum go to hard-working Ludwig artisans who live and work locally, and that truly rocks.

Beaded Aluminum Provides Stunning Allure and Powerful Attack

The Supraphonic snare drum is crafted of a chrome-plated, seamless, beaded aluminum that is truly striking visually and musically. This drum simply glistens under the stage lights. The handsome sheen of the aluminum with an elegant, gold Ludwig emblem creates a chic allure that will surely turn heads. The beaded aluminum delivers a bold snare crack filled with complex tones, truly blending well with any musical style. Players can easily access the bright and snappy rim shots and poppy side stick tones, great for funk and pop styles.

Quality Hardware

The Supraphonic features a reliable P-85 strainer and ten classic Imperial Lugs for rock-solid tuning capabilities. Steel, triple-flanged hoops enhance sustain while the P88AC throw-off and P35 Butt Plate secure the snares whether activated or dampened. Ludwig Weather Master coated batter head and clear snare-side head outfit the Supraphonic snare drum, for a professional sound, right out of the box.
