Universal Brass snares are truly a marriage of quality and versatility made to fit any budget!

Modelled after our famous Black Beauty and emphasizing optimal response, sensitivity, and dark warm tones. Universal Brass Snare drums deliver a rich, dynamic range suitable for a wide variety of tuning ranges and head combinations.

Ludwig offers these new Universal Brass drums in their most popular snare sizes, and even offers them with a choice of either Die-Cast or Triple Flanged hoops!

This particular model features Black Nickel Die-Cast Hoops , and as such has a sharper attack and cut ideal for more aggressive playing styles. Die-cast also offers a loud, crisp, clean rimshot and cross-stick sound.

The Universal Snare Drum series offers the discerning drummer a new sonic palette of sounds to complement virtually any style of music! These Ludwig Snares were designed to bring unique musical voices to the stage that work well in various musical styles across multiple tuning ranges. Sonic range and richness have never been so accessible.

    Great service as always. Been buying almost all my gear (new and used) at Drummers Only since 2010. Numerous … More reasons but mainly the service and advice. I've dealt with most of the staff over the years, but mainly the now manager Chris who is a top lad and great asset to the store/company. Whether buying a new kit or a pair of sticks, he always takes time to give advice and support. This time it was a snare head; great advice on both selection and the black art of fitting & tuning. It's sounding sweet, thanks as always for the great service and support. THANKS CHRIS AND ALL AT DRUMMERS ONLY

    I'd been after an 18" floor tom for a while.Bought a second hand PDP. To be honest it doesn't … More even look second hand. Really happy with it especially as it was practically half the price! I'm in the recording studio tomorrow so it'll be being put to good use. Already rehearsed with it and it sounds pukka! Deep and booming. Can't recommend Drummers Only enough. Really happy and as always your goods are shipped prompt with lots of protection.

    Ordered a Yamaha electronic kit for my son for Christmas. Great service in store, delivered promptly. … More However the snare drum was a bit loose on the frame and the guys not only ordered a new part but delivered it to my home personally. Great guys, great service and great products.
  • Avatar Damiano D ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    Great drum shop has a huge selection and the customer service is decent. The guys in the shop are cool … More although they seem to be a carbon copy of each other. A little diversity in terms of personality wouldn't go a miss.
