Product Description

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.

Ludwig Black Beauty 8X14 Snare Drum Supra Phonic Features

  • Legendary seamless Black Nickel plated brass shell
  • Made in Monroe, NC
  • 2.3mm Steel Hoops
  • Classic Imperial Lugs
  • Ludwig 'Weather Master'
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!

B-Stock Snares
Blemishes, finish flaw, scratches, dents and are imperfect drums visually, but are 100% up to playable specs. The Ludwig badge maybe be cut (if the drum was serialized or may not have a serial number on the full badge at all also the badge shape may vary meaning keystone or olive and blue).

Flawless Snare... Looks expensive and sounds like it. One of the best snares you can purchase and lives up to the hype.

Great Sound....In The Sonic Mirror
What is your opinion of this product?
Classic sound. Buy it once, and enjoy it for life. I have bought average, cheap snares in the past. What a waste. In the long run, a quality snare like this: 1.Saves money 2. Makes recording and mixing easy (less work fighting weird overtones) 3.Saves space, can "sell off" the inferior snares of the same size. Recap: Money, Time, Space, all saved. What a beautiful sound.

Just Perfect
What is your opinion of this product?
I own a small backline package and I have the 5x14 and the 6.5x14 sizes in my inventory. These snares are just perfect. I get the privilege of mixing my own snares when clients hire me to mix and provide backline. They just sit in the mix perfectly. The 6.5 deep version has a nice girthy sound that is extremely flexible. The 5" version isn't a slouch and sound pretty good tuned low, but also has a crack and bark that will cut through any thick mix. The fit and finish of these is also perfect. Almost every snare manufacturer has a copy of a black beauty in their product line up, but I own several of those copies and the Ludwig has a panache that the others don't have for the most part. Can't go wrong with this snare.

No others come close.
What is your opinion of this product?
The classic snare. Not just a classic but the best thing I’ve jammed on in all my days. I highly recommend it. I purchased the B-stock snare but it was still beautiful & sounded amazing. Thanks a lot AMS.

Finally
What is your opinion of this product?
The search is over. The voice of the drum is just so perfect, I don’t know what else to say. Tune it up and you’ll never want another snare.

The sound of rock and roll
What is your opinion of this product?
I started 50 years ago on a Supraphonic but of course we all knew the Black Beauty was THE snare drum. A whole generation of rockers grew up hearing the Black Beauty as the way a snare drum is supposed to sound. I had no idea that I would love it this much. Your set can never reach it's full potential until you get one of these!!!

The Real Deal
What is your opinion of this product?
They said the Pork Pie BOB would be like this, it wasn't. The real Black Beauty is often imitated but never duplicated. Glad to finally own something of this caliber. What a beautiful instrument.

A Classic Standard
What is your opinion of this product?
This snare drum is absolutely beautiful. I’ve played several snare drums in my life of playing and this one takes the cake. There is a reason this snare is the industry standard. It is highly responsive and adaptable to any sort of genre you play.
