Gorgeous Resonance and Sharp Snare Crack
The Ludwig Supraphonic is probably one of the most recognized snare drums in history. Of course, the Supraphonic's popularity shouldn't come as a surprise. The bright, crisp attack provided by its chrome-plated, seamless, beaded aluminum shell complements its full, resonant tone and sharp snare crack perfectly. A P85 strainer ensures that the Supraphonic is remarkably dynamic and responsive to your playing. From jazz to metal and beyond, the Ludwig Supraphonic snare drum's classic tone will make your drumming pop like never before.
The Ludwig legacy
Since 1909, Ludwig drums have had one of the proudest legacies in percussion and are a favorite of Sweetwater drummers for their warm, punchy sound. The world has heard them under the sticks of Cream's Ginger Baker, keeping the pulse behind Queen at Live Aid, and laying down the monstrous beat of Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks." But their biggest break came when Ringo Starr proudly played them on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, making Ludwig a household name for aspiring and superstar drummers alike.Ludwig Supraphonic Snare Drum Features at a Glance:
