One of the primary reasons Ludwig is “the most famous name on drums”, is because of the legendary Black Beauty Snare Drum.
The Ludwig Black Beauty brass shell is constructed of a single sheet of brass that is machine drawn and spun into a seamless beaded drum, then black nickel plated with a beautifully exquisite finish. The shell provides a warm, round metallic tone.
With any of the three strainer options of P85 Supra-Phonic, P86 Millenium or P70 Super-Sensitive strainers, the Black Beauty responds with excellent sensitivity at all volumes. Choose from Imperial or tube lugs, die cast or triple-flanged hoops, and a smooth or hand hammered shell. The 70 year tradition of the Ludwig Black Beauty carries on as the ultimate snare drum in the industry.
