The Ludwig Supraphonic's chrome-plated, seamless, 1.7 mm beaded aluminum shell has been a critical component of the sound that fueled the most hit recordings in history. This 5x14 snare drum is fitted with Imperial lugs, 2.3mm flanged hoops and a P85AC throw off. Professional musicians choose the Supraphonic time after time for its bright, crisp attack with the perfect balance of full resonant tone and snare crack. It's sensitive enough to handle the most refined brush work, and dynamic enough to cut through a Marshall stack. If ever there was a desert-island snare drum, the USA made Ludwig Supraphonic is it!
