The Legendary Black Beauty Snare
The legendary Ludwig Black Beauty snare drum starts with a single sheet of brass. It's machine drawn and spun into a seamless beaded shell, then chrome plated to an exquisite finish. An American classic, the Black Beauty delivers a warm, fat, metallic tone that cuts through a thick mix like nothing else. Fitted with Ludwig's P88 Supraphonic strainer, the Black Beauty is super responsive, no matter how hard or soft you hit it. Due to a complex manufacturing process, they're not easy to make, so the Black Beauty is only available in limited quantities each year from Ludwig. The Drummer’s Friend agree, this is one snare you'll want to play for a lifetime.
