Featuring 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.

Brass Hardware
Not only do these Tube Lugs add a vintage soul to the drum, they match with all the other brass hardware on this snare drum.

Brass Die-Cast Hoops
Die-cast hoops 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.

Brass P-86 Millennium throw-off and Bras P33 Butt Plate
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.

amazing snare


this snare not only looks amazing but sounds just as good as it looks, the black beauty by far is the most giving snare out there!. I wouldn't recommend it for practice just because of the look, save it for your high end gigs or good paying gigs. The tone it gives it just perfect with the p86 throw you cant go wrong.it does come in the standard black beauty finish but this style blows my mind just like it will blow your audience away.
