I bought this snare from Musician's Friend after spending almost twice the money at a local music store for a Pork Pie "BOB" snare drum. I wanted to compare the two snares side by side with the same exact heads. I put Evans ST Drys and Evans Hazy 300s on both drums, tuned them to the same pitch and was floored at what I heard! The cheaper Ludwig sounded bigger, louder, and much better than the more expensive Pork Pie snare. The built-in damper is also really nice on the Ludwig. I returned the Pork Pie and saved a bunch of money and in the end have a much better sounding snare! With good heads this snare drum is a REAL ROCKER!!!

Ok yes this is a good deal, but thats it. The drum sounded ok when I took off that Evans head(yuck) I put on a coated Emporer. But after a month of paying the throw-off broke so now I have a snare-less snare drum, If your a experienced drummer do not buy, if you are a Bonham fan like me save up for the Supra. If you are a beginer any thing is better than the snare you have now. I hope this helped some people. But do not be discouraged from buying this I am only one opinion

Comments about Ludwig Rocker Steel Shell Snare Drum:

I bought a drum set off of my friend a while ago and it came with a ludwig rockers with the stock heads on it. God only knows how old the thing is, but it still sounds better pretty much any other snare I've played with. If you like that Chad Smith crack, crank this bad boy up and it will deliver a crack of thunder from beyond this earth. I just played an un-miced live show and it cut through everything, echoing through the auditorium, sounded great! and I still have the stock heads, barely alive, I'm curious as to what this will sound like with some brand new ones on it. Good buy

ludwig snare

By Popcorn65

from vermont

Comments about Ludwig Rocker Steel Shell Snare Drum:

i give it 8/10 because its a solid snare, it doesnt have that perfect "snap" like Roger Taylor got with Queen, or that explosive sound that Keith Moon had, but it meets all your basic needs and gives you a great punch for rock n' roll or whatever you want for the style of music you play.

Reliable, nice sounding snare

Comments about Ludwig Rocker Steel Shell Snare Drum:

This snare has a good sound and a pretty big tuning range. I like a tight, sharp sound, so I've got it tuned really tight with two mutes on it and it sounds very good, but I probably shouldn't have to put two mutes on it to get that sound. Regardless, I've had it for almost a year now and it plays just like it did when I first got it.

Good Snare Drum

By Zeppelinfan33

Comments about Ludwig Rocker Steel Shell Snare Drum:

This was an upgrade snare drum from a standard one I had and it turned out to be a good one. Although, I have never played any really expensive snare drums with my kit, I have to say that this one is the best I have played. Originally I wasn't that happy with it because it was a 6 and 1/2 by 14 in and I could not get the John Bonham sound that I wanted. But after I tightened the crap out of both sides of it, I got a really good crack from it. It turned out to be a great Christmas present!

Comments about Ludwig Rocker Steel Shell Snare Drum:

I have played drums for 40 years, Ive probably bought at least that many drum kits, all brands low-end to top end. I always wind up using my old trusty 6.5 by 14 Ludwig rocker snare as my primary snare. It just sounds great! Evans G-2 batter head is my head of choice for this drum. They work groovey live or in the studio. This old standard will be around when the rest get put on the shelf. Try it ,you will like it.
