I’m looking for another metal snare. I have a 6.5 Supra, vintage Acrolite, 6.5 Worldmax Black nickel over brass and a 6.5 Beni - would a copper fill in any gaps or be close enough to the Worldmax to consider something different?

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.
I haven't been able to use it with my main band yet, but it cuts through just fine at church with keys and bass.

It does seem a tad darker than my black beauty, but mostly warmer.

Not mine, but one that looks like mine for a great price!

Congrats on your purchase! It's a beautiful drum. BTW, head on over to the "I'm made of METAL" thread and post your metal snares!

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!

That is a beautiful drum! I assume you added the die cast hoop.

Does the patina on these snares actually change over time? Or do they have a lacquer coating?

I did, but went back to the stock triple flange for now. I think Bill puts a lacquer over these shells. Some, like these, are absolutely gorgeous looking
