Bronze snare drum with 1.2mm shell, P88 Throw and 2.3mm Triple-Flange hoops.

Keeping in the tradition of their legendary Phonic Series of USA snares, Ludwig shines the spotlight on the beauty and musicality of their Raw Bronze Phonic line of snare drums. First launched in 1982, Bronze snares have been an important part of the Ludwig story.

Bronze has been at the core of fine percussion making for centuries—from cymbals, bells, trumpets, and trombones, to gongs, tympani and, of course, snare drums. Bronze is created from a blend of copper and tin. This gives bronze snares a warmer, wood-like overall tone but with all the aggressive attack and presence of its brass counterpart.

Ludwig’s 1.2mm shell is made from a single sheet of bronze that’s machine-drawn into a seamless, beaded shell, and left in its natural, raw state, then outfitted with either Imperial or Tube Lugs. All snares come with a P88 Throw, and 2.3mm Triple-Flange hoops.

Sonically, Bronze Phonic sits in between its brass and copper counterparts—slightly warmer and mellower than brass, but more aggressive than copper and always its own unique voice in any style or mix. The Ludwig Raw Bronze Phonic Snare Drum is a great addition to any drummer’s sonic palette.

Available in 5" and 6.5" depths with either Imperial or Tube Lugs.
