Ludwig Black Beauty Snare Drum w/ Brass Trim 14x6.5
To many, Ludwig is the most recognizable name in percussion purely because of one drum - the legendary Black Beauty Snare Drum. The seamless 1.2mm brass shell is machine drawn and spun into a seamless beaded drum before being finished with gorgeous black nickel plating. The shell speaks with an unmistakable round metallic tone. Tune it up high for a clean, piercing crack. Tune it loose and low for a fat, swampy backbeat. For over 80 years, this snare drum has been an industry standard. Now is the perfect time to own an American classic! This special model Beauty is 6.5x14 with brass die-cast hoops, brass tube lugs, and a brass-plated P86 Millennium throw off.
