OVERVIEW

A versatile snare that fits any project and any sound.

Ludwig's wood snares have remained popular throughout the company's nearly 100-year history, and were the drums that helped establish the fat backbeat and deep grooves of pop and R&B music in the 1970s and '80s. The Classic Maple all-maple shell features the clarity and warmth players have come to expect from maple drums, plus the projection and musicality that has maintained Ludwig's reputation for snare drum innovation and excellence.

Available in a wide selection of sounds, sizes and styles, from piccolo, standard and deep models. From lacquer, exotic and wrapped finishes, Ludwig Classic Maple snares are the new Classics of today.

    Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple Snare Drum:

    As background, I own 4 USA made kits, 2 Ludwig, 1 Gretsch and 1 DW Collector. All are great products but different. The Ludwig Classic Maple has, in my opinion, the best shell made. The tone has both warmth and cut. They record very well and work for jazz, funk and rock. The 10 lug wood shell Ludwig classic maple snare (I have 2) simply projects better than my other snares. The fit and finish is perfect. My DW collector tone has more bottom in and less cut which is great under miked conditions. The Gretsch kit is very responsive and sonically between the DW and the Ludwig. My 1967 Ludwig kit has mahogany shells. The tone has improved as the drums have aged. When the drums were new, they had less projection than they do now.

    Bottom line is the Ludwig snare has a warm tone but better cut than the other snares I own.
