The Ludwig Ultimate snare drum takes the exiting Free-Floater model to a whole new level. Designed to meet today's marching demands, the Ultimate snare drum allows the player to achieve clean and crisp articulations with minimal weight.

The secret is in the lightweight aluminum hardware that secures the heads, allowing the thick 8-ply maple shell to be completely suspended for exceptional projection and resonance. Each snare side bearing edge is a 45-degree inner cut with a 1/8" radius round over. This edge is hand-sanded to the craftsman's touch to assure a smooth, even, flat surface for easy head seating; the final touch to complete the unmistakable Ludwig Sound. A 5-ply, 1.5" wide maple reinforcement ring ads superior support and shape integrity to the shell.

Steel mounting brackets feature key rod fasteners, which greatly reduce the chance of stripping out the adjustment. 16 individually adjustable and removable snare guts allow for a customized sound.
