Welcome to the Ludwig Supersensitive Snare Drum History web site! This site is dedicated to the Super. It includes badges, history, catalogs and dating guides.

We have a massive collection of catalog scans and history that will help you determine which era snare drum is best for you. The earliest of Supers were badged with the WFL badge and first listed in the 1960 catalog so the drum was around in 1959 or earlier.

I have documentation from William F Ludwig II, an actual catalog that he wrote the production numbers in. This type of info will only be available to The Drum Experts Network of web sites.

So if you are here to determine if your Supersensitive is chrome over brass or Ludalloy read this article about the topic.

The Super Ludwig was introduced in the early 1920's Ludwig Catalog and then in the 1929 catalog was named the New Ludwig Supersensitive. Then in the 40's the drum was no longer in the catalogs. It was not until 1962 that the NEW Ludwig Supersensitive was introduced.

If you are trying to find info about Super Sensitive wires then visit the wires catalog section from Ludwig Drum catalogs.
