Ludwig Chrome Over Brass 14" x 6.5" Snare Drum

Ludwig Chrome Over Brass 14" x 6.5" Snare Drum



Order before 3pm Mon-Fri for Next Day Delivery

The Ludwig Chrome Over Brass 14” x 6.5” Snare Drum delivers the sound that was the predecessor to the massively popular Supraphonic.

Ludwig COB Snare

First introduced in 1960 as the Super Ludwig, the Ludwig Chrome Over Brass snare was the predecessor to the world renown Supraphonic Snare.

Although the original Super Ludwig was only produced for a short period of time it went on to become one of the most sought-after drums leading to its 1990s re-release as the COB.

Featuring a practically identical aesthetic to the Supraphonic, the Ludwig COB has a chrome plated brass shell as opposed to the chrome plated aluminium shell of the Supraphonic.

The Ludwig COB’s seamless, chrome plated brass shell delivers the rich open tone of brass with a touch of added focus and top end to produce classic tone with sleek style.

  • 1.2mm Seamless Brass Shell Chrome Plated
  • 2.3mm Steel Triple Flanged Hoops
  • P85AC Throw Off

Brass Beauty

The Ludwig Chrome Over Brass Snare features a 1.2mm seamless beaded brass shell with a chrome plated finish.

The all brass shell delivers rich open tone across the full frequency range to offer a musically warm and vibrant snare sound.

Combining the brass shell with the chrome plating serves to inject some added focus and treble to the sound for a snare with crisp, cutting highs.

Delivering everything from delicate sensitivity to sharp, cutting volume, this 14” x 6.5” COB snare offers the depth of sound that’s ideal for the studio and the powerful projection required to cut through on stage.

From focused jazz, funk and disco to impactful rock, metal and prog, this Ludwig snare is capable of covering the most diverse musical settings.

Supraphonic Style

It’s clear to see the style of the Ludwig COB snare definitely had a direct influence on the creation of the popular Ludwig Supraphonic snares.

Offering a practically identical aesthetic to the likes of the Ludwig 402 and 400, this Ludwig 14” x 6.5” Chrome Over Brass Snare provides classic chrome style.

The chrome plated shell is perfectly matched by the chrome 2.3mm triple flanged hoops and instantly recognisable signature art deco style Ludwig Imperial Lugs.

The snare is adorned with the P85AC Throw Off and P35AC Butt Plate to deliver smooth adjustability and reliable hold of the snare wires.

Ludwig Weather Master Heads

The Ludwig Chrome Over Brass snare comes complete with Ludwig Weather Master drumheads for vibrant warmth and rich resonant tone.

The top of the snare is fitted with a Weather Master Medium Coated Head to offer superior durability and the resonant side features a Weather Master Clear Snare Side to ensure a sensitive snare response.


Delivering legendary Ludwig tone, the COB snare is a modern imagining of a 60s classic.

The seamless beaded brass shell offers full open tone and the chrome plating works to add improved focus and cut to the sound.

The chrome on chrome aesthetic of the shimmering shell and complementary imperial lugs and triple flanged hoops offers a sleek, sophisticated aesthetic that exudes recognisable style.
