Ludwig Black Beauty Hammered Snare Drum w/ Tube Lugs 5x14
Product was successfully added to your shopping cart.
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. This particular Beauty has a slightly warmer, more controlled tone thanks to a skillfully hammered 5x14 shell with 2.3mm flanged hoops, tube lugs and the P85AC throw off. Talk to the Drum Center of Portsmouth's knowledgeable staff to get fitted with the Ludwig snare drum that's right for you!
