USA Made Ludwig 5 x 14 Hand Hammered Black Beauty Snare Drum


manufactures description:

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. 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

this snare is a 'B stock' drum from ludwig which means it was determined during final inspection that it had some sort of cosmetic issue, or it could have been a display drum at a NAMM show. in most cases of our B stock snares, we are unable to detect what earned it a 'B stock' classification. it has a full factory warranty


our opinion:
the plain truth: EVERY DRUMMER SHOULD OWN A BLACK BEAUTY! often emulated, seldom duplicated. the most copied drum on the planet with a signature sound the copycats never quite achieve. NOTHING sounds like a Black Beauty

this hand hammered brass shell version is a little darker with a bit more bass tone than a regular black beauty, more tonal options depending on the strike point
