Ludwig 14x8" Slotted Coliseum Snare Drum - Brushed Silver
As you might be able to tell from the size and the clear Remo dot head; this is not meant for jazz. Fond looks of nostalgia came from the more experienced members of the team when this came in and every head in the shop turned when it was hit for the first time.
The first split shell snares were modified and built by marching and orchestral players looking for increased volume and snare sensitivity, and the original Split Coliseum had both in spades. Ludwig has finally brought this beautiful drum back to market with this fabulous reissue.
Equipped with the classic P-85 strainer and 12 lugs on each side, tuning is as accurate can be. Ludwig’s finely cut bearing edges and hoops means it retains its quality all across the tuning spectrum. It’s remarkably loud and would have no problem retaining clarity and precision during complex passages with a full size orchestra. However, I imagine we’re going to be seeing a lot more of these with rock, funk and metal bands than with the London Philharmonic.
