I bought this snare drum out of curiosity really. I have a large collection of quality snare drums but this Ludwig styling caught my eye. It arrived within reasonable time beautifully packaged.
It comes with Remo Ambassador Chinese heads and was semi-tuned. The snare wires needed centering and that was easily achieved and I tuned the drum properly.
It sounded excellent immediately....as good as some of my expensive snare drums except for the fact that the steel in this drum is quite lightweight and to my ears it sounds like
a Ludwig aluminium or Acrolite snare drum
I am quite pleased.
