Strainer system is different, but very nice once you get used to it. I know this snares intended design is for orchestra use, but the sounds you can get out of it for rock/jazz are incredible.
Got this snare locally about 2 weeks ago. Absolutely the best sounding snare I've used to date. I've personally only been playing drums about 4 years (guitar player for almost 25 years) but I value quality sound when it comes to gear. This would certainly define quality in my book. Can't see myself EVER wanting to sell this...
The way the snares sit on the bottom head offer up a solid, unique sound. Nice strainer system too with both sides being able to adjust tension.
Top notch Ludwig quality!
There are definitely more expensive snares out there, but on the low end price range of high end snares, this drum takes the cake.
I bought a ludwig LB419KT which is the same as this but with the tube lugs instead of the classic ones, it also came with a P-71 SS Snare Strainer instead of a P-85. With good tuning and proper snare tension you can achieve a tight jazzy 'pop' or a massive sizzle. I play a lot of zeppelin stuff so ludwig is really the only choice I can make, and I know that he used a supraphonic, but I tried a supraphonic and this together and I'm sorry all zep fans, but this one won, it totally blew me away, I bought it right then and there, buy this drum and I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed.
