Ludwig's Chrome over Brass snare drum, introduced in 1960 as the Super Ludwig, was the predecessor to the Supraphonic. Short-lived in its original release, the COB became one of the most highly sought after snares, leading to its eventual re-release in the '90s. The brass alloy coupled with a chrome plating offers up musical undertones favored of brass, with just the right touch of focus and treble.
