Ludwig snare drums have long been held in VERY high regard among the drumming elite for years and years.
And there is a reason that famous models like the Ludwig Black Beauty, Supraphonic, and Acrolite are some of the most played and recorded snare drums in history.
So in wanting to offer something to our customers and friends in the drumming community, we have partnered with Ludwig to offer a demo day to give people the chance to come in and physically see and hear what these snares are all about.     We will have a huge selection of different Ludwig classics on hand, plus a number of models you may never have seen before.  We’re very confident there will be a snare just right for you.

The holidays are just around the corner as well, so this could be perfect opportunity to get that drummer you love a gift he’ll truly cherish.  This event might be the chance you’ve waited for.    Join us on the 28th for a full day of Ludwig Snare drum demos.   The drums we’ve brought in are to be seen, hit, and heard.   Ludwig Reps will be alongside the JD staff to answer any questions you might have.
We’ll be having great deals on every Ludwig snare on hand as well as giving a special Limited Edition Ludwig shirt with every snare purchase.
This is a great opportunity to come in a see what all the fuss is about over Black Beauties, Acrolites, Black Magics, Titaniums, Vistalites, and lots more!

A Sneak Peak of just some of the snares we’ll have on hand;

L2008  The Memorial Edition “The Chief” Supraphonic’s 0.35″ Titanium shell (made exclusively by Drumsmith Ronn Dunnett,) offers a wide tuning range and crisp, amplified tone. As the only Supraphonic available in 5.5″x14″, the Chief also features the Dunnett R-Class piston throw-off, adjustable air-vent, Imperial Lugs, and a special badge featuring the likeness of the drum’s namesake, William F. Ludwig II.


Created in the 50’s and 60’s for traveling road reps, the ‘Salesman Sparkle’ kit was a rare showpiece for Ludwig’s rainbow of available finishes. Re-imagined with Classic Maple Shells for the modern arena stage by Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney, the New Salesman snare reflects the classic styling of the original with modern sonic thunder.

Laser-engraved with hand-drawn pieces of his tattoo flash, Corey Miller’s snare features a white powder-coated, 6.5×14″ steel shell that performs with high-end brightness and power. Features chrome tube lugs and 2.3mm triple-flanged hoops.
