Ludwig Snare drums are simply the best there is!
Ludwig has been making great snare drums for a very long time! (Ludwig was founded in 1909)
They know how to make a great snare drum, and today's Classic Maple snare drums are no exception!
I love maple drums, the tone is just right...loud, but still warm. The 5 x14" is a great choice for over-all musical applications. Ludwig cuts a perfect snare bed, which allows the snares to dig in and give you the perfect snap without a lot of extra unwanted buzz. They making tuning a breeze!. Ludwig classic maple bearing edges are 45 degrees and are flawless, which means the heads will seat perfectly and tune effortlessly. The 2.3mm triple flanged hoops make rim shots a joy, and are very solid. If you love classic rock, there is no more iconic finish than Black Oyster Pearl...check out Ringo's kit with the Beatles! This snare and finish is probably the best known snare drum of all-time, and certainly the most collectable. Can't afford a vintage Ringo snare drum (Jazz Fest 8 lug)? These new Ludwig Classic Maple drums are great and so much more affordable. The quality of the wood shells and the over-all quality from Ludwig today is better than ever. You can't go wrong with this drum. Fantastic!
