It's as good as everyone says it is!

Rod N., 09.06.2013
I bought this snare on recommendation.
It is a timeless classic no doubt, and records very well indeed.
It sounds good cranked up and really fat when tuned midrange.
It responds well to muffling and is great for light intricate stickwork and for heavy backbeat pounding.
The things that let it down are the stock heads - replace these immediately!
And the main problem is tuning, and getting it to stay in tune!
After looking at various drummer forums, I have decided at great expense, to invest in a complete set of Tightscrews. These will cost as much as a fifth again of the retail price!
Verdict:
An incredible sounding drum, with poor stock heads and notoriously hard to tune and keep in tune!

The Sound of Rock!

AlanC, 02.06.2013
ATTENTION ALL ROCK DRUMMERS! If your an experienced rock drummer or just starting out in the world of rock drumming, and are going to part with your hard-earned cash and invest in a snare drum that will make a statement , then this is the drum you need. The reason? The LM402 Supraphonic is the very drum that probably the most influential rock drummer of all time used, the legendary John Bonham of Led Zeppelin! Its a chrome-plated aluminium shell that is suprisingly light in weight and has tension rods with rubber rings that stop them from falling out of the drum hoop when changing heads, a nice idea. A simple throw-off snare strainer for adjusting the snare wires and the trademark Ludwig badge is also included on the shell. As for the sound, being a metal shell it is very bright, lively and has a real crispness when playing ghost notes that makes it excellent when playing dynamics in a song. The overall tone and attack of the drum is a real blessing and is a versatile enough drum to be used in other genres of music outside of rock. Like on the great Led Zeppelin recordings, Bonham used this drum when playing different styles from Blues to folk, to funk and Heavy Rock.
A drum to make any drummer proud to own, this IS the sound that appears on the most hit recordings in history, and on that note, what more can you say?!!
