Ludwig's revolutionary marching snare drum concept takes the term "free floater" to a new level. Designed for unparalled tuning and high tensioning, the USA Free Floater enables you to achieve clean, crisp, exacting articulations. The secret is in the lightweight magnesium frame that secures both the batter and snare heads, allowing the thin 4-ply Maple/Birch shell to be completely suspended for the ultimate in projection.
