There’s an old saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.  Who ever said this has clearly never heard all of the different Ludwig Black Beauty models. For many years the Black Beauties have been considered some of the most sought after drums in the world.  These snares are perfect for anyone looking for a loud drum that has incredible sensitivity, outstanding snare response, and an excellent overall tone.

This model features a seamless brass shell that is machine drawn and spun to create a perfectly round drum with an unrivaled sound.  Just like many other high end snares, this drum has a beaded center which helps create a sharper response without cutting down on the drums overall volume and resonance. The shell is coated in a black nickel finish while the brass hardware, and tube lugs give this drum a classy, timeless look.

This drum also comes stock with die-cast hoops which help give it a sharp, focused sound.  The added weight of the hoop also helps keep the drum in tune longer as well as create a well-defined rim-shot and side sticking. As if all of this wasn’t enough this drum also comes with a P-86 Millennium throw-off for steady, precise snare settings. The P-86 was the successor to the hugely popular Ludwig P-85, and can be found on many other popular snare drums such as the Acrolites, the Classic Maple Exotics, and the Legacy Edition.  Once you hear one of these snares for yourself, you’ll understand why drummers have been drooling over the Black Beauties for well over 70 years.
