same professional standards as our Black Beauty,
Supraphonic, and Bronze Phonic models, the new
Copper Phonic is a proud addition to the Ludwig
USA family and a legend in the making. Available in
5×14″ (LC661), and 6.5 x14″(LC663) sizes.

Ludwig Copper-Phonic 14″ x 6.5 Snare

SKU: LC663


The brand new addition to the already-stellar Ludwig snare drum lineup.   This new Copper snare is extremely warm yet very bright and crisp.   It is much lighter than you would expect and has some really nice articulation.  With  similar characteristics and overtones as the other Supraphonics, it does offer a slightly different voice with the warmth and bite to it.   The raw patina finish isn’t too shabby either!
