Ludwig Black Beauty Snare Drums have long been the 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.
Ludwig Black Beauty Stainless Steel
Yet another in a series of Ludwig firsts, Black Magic Stainless models incorporate a mirror-polished, 1.5mm stainless steel shell for bright, cutting attack and mid-range overtone. Black Magic's black-nickel tube lugs and appointments provide sharp visual contrast, and tonal range is broadened with 2.3mm power-hoops.
