Featuring an unfinished 1.2mm brass shell, contributing to this snare drums "earthy" vibe. We all fell in love with that Black Beauty name and sound. The Ludwig Raw Brass Phonic is aimed to bring a drier and organic edition to the Black Beauty vibe. As time goes on, these drums change in character, giving each snare drum a unique identity.

"Earthy" Vibe:
Due to its unfinished 1mm brass shell, these snares catch the eye of any drummer. That raw esthetic compliments its dry tone. This raw look fits great with the timeless Keystone badge and classic Imperial Lugs.

An Organic Edition to the Black Beauty Vibe:
The Black Beauty became one of the most sought after snares during its time. One of the favorites for both recording and live situations, producing a controlled sound that had lots of tone and clarity. The Raw Brass Snare brings a raw, dry edition to the Black Beauty vibe.

Unique Identity:
Normally, snare drums receive a sealer that preserves the snare from oxidizing over time. Ludwig encouraged this oxidizing to let every snare develope its own character. Over time the snare will begin to oxidize further, developing a unique tone. No two snare drums are exactly the same.
