Amazing value. This is a genuine Ludwig maple snare made in the USA and it sounds like it. They did cut a few corners to achieve that price point. Instead of a lacquer or wrap finish, the outer later of the shell is a nice looking satiny veneer. I'm fine with that, I'd buy the rest of the kit if they made it. The snare wires however are as cheap as they come, exact same thing you'll find for 15$ from Stagg or Cannon, attached with plastic straps. Throw this out right away. I put Puresound Super 30 on mine with the mounting wires that came with it. Still amazing value even after the extra 30-40$ for new wires. Also, while the throw off is the new improved Atlas, the butt plate is the old style that uses philips screws to hold the snares (does not work with a drum key like the throw off side does). Not really a big deal, just make sure to carry a screwdriver with you (my other snare is a 1968 Acrolite so I have to do this anyway) The heads appear to be proper US-made Remo (glued collar, not crimped). That said, with a fairly thin 6.5" deep maple shell and sharp 45 degrees bearing edges, this thing can ring a LOT, so I still replaced the top head with an Emperor Vintage. It's amazingly fat now, and still has a distinct Ludwig personality.
