Probably the 2nd most recorded and widely-used snare drum in history, right after its little brother! Get yours from Sam Ash Direct for the lowest price with fast, Free Shipping!

These classic snare drums feature a chrome-plated aluminum, beaded shell with 10 dual Classic lugs and the legendary P-85 snare strainer. These are the very same features that have helped make the Ludwig Supraphonic the prefered snare drum of players for almost fifty years!  And just like the old saying goes "if it ain't broke don't fix it". There is always a Ludwig SupraPhonic in every pro drummers arsenal of snare drums!

The SupraPhonics have been used in countless recordings and stage shows over the years and it's easy to hear why.  The 5”x14” SupraPhonic is bright, penetrating, colorful and direct, with multiple sweet spots and tuning ranges.  The larger 6-1/2”x14” SupraPhonic has these same characteristics but is capable of a deeper tuning range and heavier, fatter tone.  In this size, the SupraPhonic snare drum really excels as a hard rock snare as well as for large jazz and concert bands.

The beaded shell design, a LUDWIG SupraPhonic hallmark, keeps the shell very stiff and perfectly round.  It also contributes to the resonance of the shell.

    Comments about Ludwig SupraPhonic 6-1/2”x14” Snare Drum:

    Finally got one after years of waiting. I don't know if they are still putting the rubber gaskets under the lugs- but if your's has them, take them off. They deaden the sound. Good idea to put a fatter head on the batter side such as a Emperor, but not an unsealed double ply like the Pinstripe. It takes a few minutes to dial in the sound, and there are some great youtube videos that are a big help.
