What We Think

The Copper Phonic snares utilize the same copper that is used in their legendary timpani drums which they have been building for over 100 years and the results are nothing short of incredible. This 5x14 Copper Phonic Patina snare drum features a lightly lacquered and patina finish over a raw 1.2mm copper shell. The seamless shell delivers a focused and crisp tone but with a nice dryness, you won't find in any of the Ludwig metal snare drum offerings

Just like the legendary Black Beauty, engineers and professionals are reaching for the Copper Phonic and its signature sound. Whether you were looking to play rock or jazz this drum fits into place, staying responsive at all volume levels. Discover a legend in making- the Copper Phonic Patina snare drum.

Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig

Copperphonic like you’ve never seen it before! The most recent addition to the Phonic family of snare drums is now available in a new Pewter finish. A brand-new sheen adding a little more sustain to the naturally dark tone of the Copperphonic shell. With close to 100 years' experience building copper timpani, The Copperphonic provides high volume performance with complete focus and dark-low qualities.  A true legend in the making.

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.
