“With close to 100 years’ experience building copper timpani, the newest member to the Ludwig USA snare drum range is the Copper Phonic snare drum. High Volume performance with complete focus and dark-low qualities, the Copper Phonic is the next best in Ludwig’s Phonic tone pallet. A true legend in the making.”
The “B” after “LC660” indicates that this is a B-Stock drum. We carefully inspect and tune every drum before offering it for sale. Generally, some insignificant cosmetic flaw earns the “B-Stock” designation. Of the over 100 units we’ve sold, only one or two have had noticeable flaws of any kind. Unlike most of the B-stock drums we receive, this one has a serial number. It also has a small “CU” (the periodic table designation for Copper) stamped into the shell.
This drum features a 1.2 mm seamless copper shell, P85AC throw off, P35AC butt plate, and a “Keystone” badge.
