The Ludwig 8X14 Split Coliseum Snare.
What the heck is this thing, and why does it have a big split in the middle of it?
Made in 2016, this is a remake of the original “big vented” split coliseum from the 80s. Limited to 50 snares in its 4 available finishes, this is the drum for someone who is looking for a loud, dry snare with a POP!
7 Ply Maple shell split in the middle
12 ludwig bowtie lugs
Ludwig P85 throwoff
Ludwig weathermaster heavy top head
Ludwig weathermaster snare bottom head
This video demo shows the split coliseum snare in various tunings – starting from a low tuning, and working up to a higher/tight tuning.
Audio was recorded with a Blue Yeti Pro microphone 3 feet away from the drum.
