Ludwig Black Beauty Snare Drum
One of the primary reasons Ludwig is "The Most Famous Name On Drums" is the legendary Black Beauty Snare Drum. The drum is constructed of a single sheet of brass that is machine drawn into a seamless beaded shell. However, due to their truly unique and difficult manufacturing process, only a very limited number of Black Beauties are available each year from Ludwig USA.
The Black Beauty responds with excellent sensitivity at all volumes. The 80 year tradition of the Ludwig Black Beauty carries on as the ultimate snare drum in the industry.
A true American original, the Black Beauty provides a warm, round metallic tone that is often imitated, but never duplicated.
