Ludwig Epic 13 x 6.5 Inch Snare Drum - Natural
Smaller, deeper snares are becoming quite after sound as of late, with a lot of major pop session players like using them to achieve a unique and powerful backbeat on platinum sellers. This drum has a rather thin 7ply in a birch/maple/birch configuration, combining the warm tone and resonance of maple with the attack and focus of birch. The thin shell allows rich colours to come through, but don’t be afraid to hit it hard! The Epic series is designed to sing under high volume.
Ludwig has designed some rather nice looking hardware to go with this shell too, incorporating the classic keystone logo into a modern design single piece lug with minimal contact and they look very pretty with the throw, which is very smooth and even has a tuning key adjustment if you so need it. The hardware is finished in black nickel, a beautiful contrast against the natural maple finish of the shell itself.
All in all a wonderful snare for an intermediate or professional player looking for a side or main snare that’s a little different.
