What We Think

For nearly a century, Ludwig have garnered world renown for their mastery of brass snare production. The Universal series of snares distills this mastery into an incredibly affordable drum. This snare delivers crisp, articulate tones with a powerful attack. For the working drummer on a budget, or the intermediate drummer looking to upgrade their snare for the first time, Universal Series brass snares are an excellent choice.

Ludwig Universal Brass Snare Drums

Modeled after the famous Ludwig Black Beauty, the Universal Brass series emphasizes optimal response, sensitivity, and dark warm tones. The Universal Metal Brass drum delivers a rich, dynamic range suitable for various tuning ranges and head combinations.

Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig

Ludwig poineered the black-nickel over brass shell concept in the early 1920's, setting a standard that all others would follow. Universal Brass Snare Drums bring that signature sound and quality to a whole new playing spectrum, with four models to satisfy any playing situation. Accentuated with tube lugs and a choice of flanged hoops or die-cast hoops, Universal Brass snares deliver classic tone that drummers have come to expect from Ludwig.

About Manufacturer

Touted as “the most famous name on drums,” Ludwig stands today as one of the most legendary and revered American drum manufacturers of all time. Founded in 1909 under the name Ludwig & Ludwig, the company has existed under a number of different owners and names, with the Ludwig brand operating today as a subsidiary of Conn-Selmer. Throughout almost 110 years of change, one thing has remained constant: Ludwig’s dedication to building high-quality drums with that signature Ludwig tone. Over the years, Ludwig drums have laid down solid backbeats and infectious grooves at the hands of drummers like John Densmore, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, and of course, Ringo Starr. Their iconic kits from the 60s and 70s remain highly coveted by collectors and players alike, but their new offerings continue to uphold the legendary Ludwig name just the same.
