            Comments about Ludwig Supralite Snare Drum:

            I will concur that these are really nice snare drums, especially for the money. I got the 6.5 x 14 and it sounds great, (plus looks boss as well with those chrome tube lugs). I've always stayed away from steel/metal snares since I figured they would sound brash, harsh and clangy... never thought "warm" would be an appropriate adjective for this type of drum, but darned if the shoe doesn't fit in this case. First tried it tuned a bit lower and it wasn't really happening, but cranked it up higher, (tuned to an "A" note on top and "E" on the bottom), and it really came alive. I usually use a ring to dampen, but this baby even sounds cool when left wide open, (think John Cougar Mellancamp "Rain on the Scarecrow" sound). Sounds fine even with the stock heads... but sure it will sound even better when I get an Evans "HD Dry" on there. Conjure up a "Bonzo" vibe on a poor man's budget... you can't go too far wrong with one of these babies. Certainly a nice flavor to have available in your arsenal.

                Comments about Ludwig Supralite Snare Drum:

                I saw some good reviews for this, so I thought I'd give it a shot. As soon as I got it out of the box I was impressed with the overall quality. Then I listened to it, and I am really amazed that a drum this killer can be had at this price. I used to favor wood shell snares, but the Supralite won me over. Very warm without harshness in any tuning range, ringy at the edge(in a good way) and nice solid body when played at the center. I'm surprised that even the heads are pretty good. Don't stand there gawking- BUY ONE!!

                    Bought this drum because of the low price to use in the rehearsal room instead of my vintage Premier, my favourite drum. Until I got the Supralite! This is an amazing sounding snnare and I will never, ever trade it away for another drum. I have a Supraphonic also but that is far inferior to this drum. Absolutely amazing tone, sound and depth! I play it with a Evans Genera Dry batter and Evans Hazy 300 for reso.
