For almost 110 years, Ludwig have been a world leader in the manufacture of drums and percussion products, becoming a household name in on Feb 9th, 1964 when 73 million people watched the Beatles perform on the Ed Sullivan Show, with the Ludwig logo clearly visible of the front of Ringo Starr's bass drum. The company's sales skyrocketed as a result, and for the next 20 years, Ludwig became the biggest name in drums in the USA. Their commitment to the highest quality standards is evident in everything they make.
Inspired by a Transition-era Ludwig snare of the 1960s, the Super Brass snare drum features a Classic USA seamless and polished brass shell . The classic Ludwig P88 throw off mechanism and P35 butt plate give this snare that sought-after Transition-era character, all finished off with a set of nickel hardware. The Super Classic has power, sensitivity, durability and dynamics to match its heirloom good looks.
