Because I'm stupid. Actually, besides that, I decided I wanted a COB Supraphonic instead, which I now have.
I have been known to buy a new snare, sell it, regret it, re-purchase, etc. This is my 4th LM400 and I already am missing it (sold). I'm sort of going through the same motions with a 6.5" Copperphonic. I recently sold one to my stepson, regretted it and re-purchased another one. Almost sold that off recently as well and it is a 2021, but came to my senses (For now).
Did the same thing with a couple of acolytes and Black Beauties. Sold off a nice LM402 also. I'm really stupid.
I am trying to reacquire my third Ludwig Classic Maple 5", either that or a 5.5 Jazzfest Reissue if I can get a good price on either.
Wish I could keep them all, but looking to ultimately have just one metal snare and one wood snare. The 6.5" Copperphonic is the wild card. It is such a nice drum, but so was that LM400. Maybe I should just strive for a brass, copper, aluminum and wood. It's a sickness and they are all Ludwig snares, which makes it worse because they are all great snares. Damn you, Ludwig!
I'll get it figured out, but in the mean time, my loss is somebody else's gain because they are usually like new at a great price if I do sell one off. Sorry for the long answer, Mate.
