Following the success of the Raw Copperphonic, Ludwig’s UK distributor Active Music has announced that the US manufacturer’s latest addition to the World Renowned series is the Raw Brass.
At the core of the Raw Brass snare is a 1.2mm seamless machine drawn brass shell which is the foundation of the Black Beauty. The shell is subjected to an oxidation process making each snare drum unique. Because the raw shell is smooth to the touch and carries no coating it will oxidise slightly further: ‘Creating a truly stunning shell that is like no other,’ Active says.
The drum is now available in the UK in sizes 14”x5”, 14”x6.5” and 14”x8” but only in limited numbers due to the complexity of the manufacturing process.
