The legendary Black Beauty Snare drum is considered one of the most famous snares ever produced. The drum is constructed of a single sheet of brass that is machine drawn into a seamless beaded shell. However, due to their truly unique and difficult manufacturing process, only a very limited number of Black Beauties are available each year from Ludwig USA.

The Black Beauty responds with excellent sensitivity at all volumes. A true American original, the Black Beauty provides a warm, round metallic tone that is often imitated, but never duplicated. The supra-phonic snare wires are very sensitive and crisp making it a great primary snare too. Add one and upgrade your kit today!
