versatile

Comments about Ludwig Aluminum Snare Drum:

I've used this as my main snare for just about as long as I've been playing. The shell is aluminum, which sounds like a steel drum, but mellower and not as harsh. Great if you want a metal sound at lower volumes. Uses the classic Ludwig P-85 strainer; I'd suggest removing the internal mute and applying tape or gel to the head to dampen the drum. It will open up more that way. Also, buy a set of Remo Ambassadors.Sounds great in the studio as well. One of the better metal drums in its price range. Works best with rock/pop and mainstream music. Not reccomended for hard rock/metal.

Comments about Ludwig Aluminum Snare Drum:

I remember the acrolite from years ago when it was a dull matte gray,these days they`re much nicer with the cool black powder-coated finish.The sound is awesome,great projection and great sensitivity and of course cheaper than a steel supraphonic.

Comments about Ludwig Aluminum Snare Drum:

This snare is very versatile and very reliable. I use it for many different kinds of music and in all styles it exceeds most snares twice the price.

awesome, reliable snare!

Comments about Ludwig Aluminum Snare Drum:

I've had this snare for 5 years. I got it in elementary school as a rent, but I later bought it. I've been using different Remo heads on it, and they all sound great with the acrolite. I love this snare! I recommend it in the studio. It sounds great.
