Snare of the day

Ludwig Bronze Supraphonic

Today’s snare of the day comes courtesy of Ludwig – a stunning Bronze Supraphonic.

Ludwig Bronze Supraphonic at Nick Hopkin Drums

Featuring a 14 x 5″ smooth bronze shell, this drum comes fitted with all original hardware; 10 Imperial ¬†lugs, P85 snare strainer, triple flange hoops and Monroe badge. Serial number is 3395464.

The bronze on this shell is dull compared to others I have in the shop, possibly it’s lost it’s lacquer? Either way it has a kind of aged vibe to it which I really like. Fitted with Aquarian heads and Puresound wires, this drum tunes up easily and sounds great right across the tuning range. Great stick response and a bright open sound tuned higher, a nice fat warm tone tuned lower.
