A kit like that calls for a deep-dish 6.5 x 14 Supra ala John Bonham just so the snare can keep up with the rest of the kit volume-wise. Steel drums are dry and LOUD. You don't want the sound to die when you go to the snare. Go deep and un-muffled or go home!

Yes agree on the snare, maybe a coliseum. 6.5 is nice also.
I have a Ludaloy marcher 12 x 15 but didn't know they made stainless, thanks for the info.

Cool Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

I have a Coliseum in a black wrap and my Jason Bonham set has a supra...I`m still kind of leaning towards a 10x14 S/S marching snare if I can find one at a decent price and in decent shape...

I think I will put each of those snares with the set to see what it they sound like...

Thanks for the advice, gents!!

Cheers

Cool Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

I`ll probably test drive some snares tomorrow...Did Ludwig ever make a stainless or chrome Coliseum? I can`t recall if I have ever seen any...

Cheers

Don't know if they ever made steel or chrome coliseums, but you can now buy this beast at a reasonable price.

I`ve seen those listed online, but, I would like to keep the vintage vibe going with this set...They are ornate snares though!!

Cheers

Cool Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

I like the sound of my Coliseum with the set...Very deep sounding, but, still articulate...Too bad it`s not stainless!!

I feel that these are very under-rated snares from Ludwig...

Here are a couple of pics of it...

Cheers
