Black Beauty Snare Drums have long been the optimal choice for the touring and recording drummer in need of volume, tonal clarity, and optimal snare response. As the originator of its Black Nickel-Over-Brass shell composition, Ludwig is proud to announce the introduction of new Black Magic Snare Drums.

A classic formula for a more aggressive musical age, Black Magic snare drums share the same shell type with the Black Beauty, but with upgrades like matching Die-Cast hoops for increased volume, and Tube-Style lugs for maximum shell resonance.

  • Snare Drum
Series Black Magic
Other Features Black Nickel-Plated Die Cast Hoops; Black finished throwoff and butt plate

    Comments about Ludwig Black Magic 6.5x14" Brass Snare Drum:

    ive been playing for 27 yrs...ive always thought maple snares were the best but i wanted to try this snare..its a beautifull instrument,i dont recommend for begginers or anyone who is not sure what they are going for,you have got to dial this thing in,you just cant put any tuning on it..if you cant tune it or you do somthing stupid like put an aquarian head on it or remo zero ring,you will have wasted the quality of what this snare has to offer..put a remo vintage head..spend hours tuning,memorize your tuning cause every time you put it in the case and take it out you will have to tweak it..

        Comments about Ludwig Black Magic 6.5x14" Brass Snare Drum:

        This snare sings when tuned up tight,but you can also get a fatter wetter sound tuned low.its up to how you hear music,be carefull if you play jazz,this snare has ALOTof volume and i have to make a concious effort to play lighter on it then the rest of my kit because my bell ride is the only thing that can match the volume,use light sticks and a remo vintage coated,dont use a zero ring because this snare is about resonance and that would defeat the purpose of a $400 snare,i got this snare about 18 months ago if i had to do it again i might of gotten the 5inch to take some volume off...if you dare to use rimshots all the way be carefull your neighbors might call the cops thinking there are gunshots going off!if you want to hear this snare go to crucialyze channel on you tube..when i first brought this snare home i was amazed at the quality and pure tone of this shell,its a fine instrument....
