What We Think

When it comes to snare drums, he Ludwig has been an industry standard for decades. Their thin metal shell snare drums have blessed countless records and concert halls with sonic bliss to excite the ears. 

The Chrome Over Brass snare drum is similar to the Black Beauty and features a spun, seamless, beaded brass shell with chrome plating. This stunning shell lays the groundwork for the rest of the drum. It delivers a sharp, full-bodied sound with articulate ghost notes, an unbelievably pronounced rimshot, and an overall clarity and projection that can’t be matched.  

Whether you use this drum for live playing or session work, this drum has an enhanced crispness that will have finding new excuses to get behind the kit and play. Check out the Ludwig LB400B Black Beauty snare drum today!

Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig

Ludwig’s Chrome Over Brass snare drum, introduced in 1960 as the Super Ludwig, was the predecessor to the Supraphonic. The brass alloy coupled with a chrome plating offers the musical undertones favored of brass with just the right touch of added focus and treble.

Though short-lived from its original release, the COB would go on to become one of the most sought after and in demand drums that would lead to its re-release in the 90's.

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.
