Snare of the day

Ludwig Hammered Bronze

OK, so I arrived back in the UK after an amazing time at Chicago Drum Show, catching up with some great friends and buying loads of stock which will be heading to the shop soon. Back to featuring some stunning snares as they arrive, today’s choice a Hammered Bronze Ludwig…

Ludwig Hammered Bronze 6.5 Snare drum available at Nick Hopkin Drums

This drum comes to us in amazing condition, part of a larger personal collection that was kept cased and well looked after. This is a Monroe badge drum in 14 x 6.5″ with original hardware. The shell is in excellent condition, the drum fitted with original Ludwig heads and wires.

I tuned this drum up medium/high and it just sang – great stick response right across the head and a lovely tone, with a crisp bite when played with a rimshot. Tuned down with a gel it sounds fatter with a bit more warmth than a regular 402. Wow, what a stunner!

This snare is available on the website with International shipping calculated at checkout. We accept all major credit cards alongside Paypal. Don’t miss this one!
