What We Think

The Ludwig Supraphonic is arguably the most-recorded snare drum in modern history. With a long history of icons like Ringo Starr, John Bonham, Alex Van Halen, and Hal Blaine utilizing the Supraphonic, it's no surprise that the drum has become a staple drum hobbyists and professionals alike.

The thin polished aluminum shell is known for its bright, clean attack, and for its trademark resonance making it perfect for live or studio situations. The ten lug configuration will give you peace of mind and total control of wide tuning ranges that can go from wet and loose to dry and tight without sacrificing any definition of the notes. From press rolls to pummeling backbeats, the shallow snare beds, and wide-flanged bearing edges deliver trademark articulation and complexity with ease.

If you could only have one snare drum, the Ludwig Supraphonic could easily be an adaptable, and viable option worthy of that rank.

Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig

From Jazz to Metal, Ludwig's Supraphonic 400s provide the perfect sound in the studio or stage. The USA-made chrome-plated, seamless, beaded aluminum shell produces a bright, crisp attack with the perfect balance of full resonant tone and snare crack. 


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.
