What We Think

For the first time in 20 years, Ludwig has started using a 1.2mm shell and we can't think of a better use for it than on the Copperphonic series snares. The Copperphonic 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. The brilliantly hammered and polished copper 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, the Copperphonic has its own signature sound that engineers and professionals can't deny. Whether you were looking to play rock or jazz this drum fits into place, staying responsive at all volume levels. Discover what happens when beauty and tone collide with the Copperphonic snare drum.

Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig

With close to a century of experience building copper timpani, the newest member to the Ludwig USA snare drum range is the Copper Phonic snare drum. This drum is fitted with imperial lugs and 2.3mm hoops, and the 6.5 x 14 hammered copper shell is finished with a high gloss finish. Built to the same standards as Ludwig's Black Beauty, Supraphonic, and Bronze Phonic models, the Copper Phonic is a legend in the making. 


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.
