Paiste PST7 Regular Session Box Set
Ludwig have been on top of the snare game for over 100 years now, originally founding in 1909 they really hit their stride with the introduction of the Black Beauty snare in 1928. It’s changed a lot of the past 90 years, but the basis has always remained the same: a black nickel chromed brass shell that makes sound engineers and drummers alike weep with joy. The Black magic combines this rich heritage with modern aesthetics and manufacturing.
Ludwig have seen in their wisdom to create this modern variation to appeal to the younger player who may not have the cash to lay down on the original. Featuring the same black nickel over brass shell of the black beauty and matched with die-cast hoops as opposed to the black beauty’s triple flanged it has a very concentrated sound with a strong fundamental. Classic looking tube lugs contrast these more industrial looking hoops and the tension rods have been fitted with double washers to help maintain solid tuning even through repeated rim shots.
The badge harkens back to the original keystone badge found on many classic Ludwig drums and also references a tradition of black beauty owners: engraving. There are few more beautiful sights than a well engraved Black Beauty and the Black Magic is ready and waiting for your own personal mark and style.
