Haven't been feeling metal snares lately, but have really been curious about copper. According to most, the Ludwig combines the best of the black beauty, 402, and the wood drums in one. I completely agree with this Pork Pie variant. It's an absolutely stunning sounding and looking drum.

I was about to buy another one, but wasn't a fan of some of the looks. This one really caught my eye. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the Copperphonic, I highly recommended this one!

I'd say I'd use it now over my 402 and black beauty on our next gigs. Currently it's the only metal drum that's made me put my beloved Rosewood snares on the shelf.

And another 1 handed quick sound sample!

Noce sounding/looking snare, I like that polished bead too.

LOVE that drum, congrats on the new family member, and I'm a fan of the polished bead also. What a handsome snare... welcome to the world of copper, it is the only snare shell material that I have more than one drum in.

I was about to sell my 402 for this one, but between this, my 402, black beauty, and Drumcraft bell bronze, I'm covered on metals completely. I just can't let any of these 4 snares go now. It's crazy how well the copper has some of everything in it. I don't think it's as dark as some say. This thing cracks!

I'm looking for a copper snare. Over Covid, I sold three of my four copper snares. I still have one but the pork pie looks awesome!

I like everything about it, sounds amazing! Price point?

499 but you can ask for some off. Here's the other I almost got. There doesn't seem to be too many of these available.

Yeah man I agree the polished bead sets the tone here, just enough bling to make that finish pop

How does it do volume wise in live gigs? I’ve had my eyes on copper snares for a while and heard that they can be a bit too dark and midrange-y to be heard over loud guitars.
