About Delivery

The Black Beauty’s solid, reliable performance and amazing sound have continued to win fans over during its amazing 90 years. What's even more amazing is that in those 90 years, the Black Beauty’s design has essentially remained the same except for a few minor tweaks, and this latest tweak is a direct response to the demand of Ludwig fans around the world.

This 8-lug version of the Black Beauty will excite lovers of the vintage drum sound. The 10-lug version of this drum has a more modern flavour thanks to its increased tension spread that increases focus and reduces overtones. In contrast, this 8-lug BB has a distinctly more open sound that emphasises the snare response rather than the snap of the shell. This results in a very sensitive drum with a vintage sound that delivers an articulate, nuanced performance.

The Black Beauty’s seamless beaded brass shell’s signature Black Nickel finish is complemented by gleaming triple-flanged hoops. Imperial lugs enhance the drums vintage look and all tension rods are fitted with double washers for a better class of consistency that will hold for longer even when you're going all out and putting this Beauty through its paces.
