Ludwig Black Beauty 14x6.5" Classic Lug Supra-Phonic Snare Drum
Often imitated, never duplicated, Ludwig snare drums have been the industry standard since 1911. The tradition and quality continues on today better than ever with a sound that could only be Ludwig. Listen to any hit song from the 60’s through today and chances are you’re hearing a Ludwig Snare Drum. Ludwig Snare Drums are the most toured and recorded snare drum in the world and with good reason. From the smooth round perfection of the bearing edge to the precision cut of the snare bed, Ludwig Snare Drums are in a league of their own.
One of the primary reasons Ludwig is “the most famous name on drums”, is because of the legendary Black Beauty Snare Drum.
The Ludwig Black Beauty brass shell is constructed of a single sheet of brass that is machine drawn and spun into a seamless beaded drum, then black nickel plated with a beautifully exquisite finish. The shell provides a warm, round metallic tone.
Due to the complex manufacturing process, only a limited number of Black Beauty snares are produced each year.
