AMAZING SNARE DRUM

drummer1989, 10.07.2018
Been playing this snare for one year now in a variety of styles and genres and it is truly amazing! At first it took a while to get a good tuning since it was new and i had to retune it after every gig, but by the time it stabilized, it became also easier and easier to tune high and low as i needed depending on the situation and it never disappointed me . This is a brass snare , so it has great volume, resonance and harmonics and in this size 14x8 it has the big fat sound when tuned low too, In the end it is totally worth the money. Spend some time to tune it well and once you get used to it you will be able to use it in all your musical contexts!

Class drum for small money, some rework is n tig ...

The first impression is the most important ... in this case, the LW0814 does everything right, this drum looks just sucked and really fat! The metalworking and chrome plating (nickel plating?) Is at the highest level, the boiler seam is not visible from the outside, the boiler is perfectly round, the rims (rims) as well as all holes are cleanly worked, all tuning screws (10 pieces) are easy. Best requirements for a good and flexible sound and easy tuning.

The skins can be used on the factory side, but at least the resonance fur, because the beater is very inferior white lacquered and smells like a wet dog. So right away, the sound really terrible. A stylebreak commits Ludwig with the carpet fastening - bright white strings with an otherwise completely black drum? I'm not a friend of strings on the snare carpet anyway, they are often too thick and prevent a clean soldering on the resonance skin and lead to a stronger surprise.

In the case of the LW0814 these were also too slack mounted and the carpet could not be tensioned properly. After I drum up with a Remo Vintage Ambassador coated and as a resonance an Evans Hazy 200 (very thin!) And the carpet lacing is replaced by the beautiful black Puresound MT4 Mylar Straps (Art.Nr..221734, slightly expensive - but black!) Then really the Magic came to the fore.

The LW0814 has a rich, deep bass sound with wonderfully soft and pleasantly harmonious overtones. Rimshots popping
Because of the casting tires like the sow, the carpet is despite 8 "Kesseltiefe perfect and clean, the drum sounds even without carpet very horny, brass flat I do not understand, but it does not fit into "Black Magic" and leaves the potential of this drum unused
Increase and provide proper skins. Nevertheless, I am proud of the Ludwig, and I will not give her back ...
