Ludwig Snare Drums

Bronze & Brass


The Ludwig Snare Drum pedigree was built on the foundation of Brass. Now available in a variety of sizes and options, Ludwig Brass Snares project with bright, soaring highs and a crisp sensitivity essential for capturing every stroke.


A softer, darker alloy generally used for cymbal making, bronze presents a unique blend of metal snare projection and the warmer tones of a wood drum. Options include standard 2.3mm triple-flanged or die-cast hoops, Imperial or tube-style lugs and Classic P85 or Millennium P86 snare strainers. Bronze snares are also available with Super-Sensitive snare strainer.
