One of the primary reasons Ludwig is “The Most Famous Name In Drums” is the legendary Black Beauty Snare Drum. The drum is constructed of a single sheet of brass that is machine drawn and spun into a seamless beaded shell, then nickel-plated with a beautifully exquisite finish. A true American original, the Black Beauty provides a warm, round metallic tone that is often imitated, but never duplicated.

Features a 1.2mm Seamless Brass Black Nickel Plated Shell, 2.3mm Steel Triple Flanged Hoops, P84 Throw-Off, P35 Butt-Plate, Ludwig Weather Master Medium Coated Head, Ludwig Weather Master Clear Snare Side head and 10 lugs.
