What We Think

The Phonic series of drums has been the backbone of Ludwig for decades. The seamless shells provide players a diversity of sonic possibilities for a variety of musical needs. 

A softer, darker alloy generally used for cymbal making, Bronze presents a unique blend of metal snare projection and the warmer tones of a wood drum. When compared to some of the other metal shell drums in the Phonic series, the bronze shell delivers a lower fundamental note and body that the others cannot naturally reach. This Ludwig Hammered Bronze Snare features a stylish hand-hammered shell and polished exterior with their Imperial lugs. The hammering process shortens the sustain while adding a beautiful aesthetic that is sure to please. 

The Ludwig Hammered Bronze is perfect for the player that is looking for something outside of the normal metal shell offerings. Refined ears and seasoned players are sure to enjoy all that the bronze has to offer.

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.
