Often imitated, never duplicated, Ludwig snare drums have been the industry standard since 1911. The tradition and quality continues on today better than ever with a sound that could only be Ludwig. Listen to any hit song from the 60's through today and chances are you're hearing a Ludwig Snare Drum.
Ludwig Snare Drums are the most toured and recorded snare drum in the world and with good reason. From the smooth round perfection of the bearing edge to the precision form of the snare bed, Ludwig Snare Drums are in a league of their own.
The Heirloom Black Brass honors a century of Ludwig Snare Drum prestige. This shell is finished as a brushed Black Brass shell for a darker presence and re-imagined with Die-Cast hoops for elevated focus and attack.
Featuring the Heirloom series signature custom laser-etched banding, the presentation of this anniversary model is augmented with brass flat imperial lugs, brass Die-Cast hoops, brass P88 throw-off, brass P35 butt-plate, and embossed 110th Anniversary badge. Includes our new anniversary model snare bag.
