    This drum is the best metal drum Ludwig ever made. You need no Supra or Black Beauty after dialing one of these in. Low to high it is the best Ludwig ever made.

  • Great snare

    The 15” Supra gives me another voice to use and it sounds and looks great. It stands as the only 15” in my arsenal and I don’t foresee needing another.
