      If you think this drum sounds good now, you should hear it with adjustable individual snares. The sound I was able to achieve was unbelievable.

      Finest Snare Ever Made

      Comments about Ludwig Black Beauty Snare with Super-Sensitive Snares:

      The Ludwig 6 1/2"x14" Black Beauty NOB(anodized black nickel over brass)with the P-70 Super Sensitive Snare Strainer is by far the best sounding snare drum that has ever been produced. Copied countless times by All of the major drum builders, yet never able to even come close to duplicating this 1920s stellar design. More expensive than some studio quality drum kits/sets but worth every penny. Once you own it/play it/hear it you wil never want another. Buy a Hard case to go with it because you have no idea how upset you'll be if it gets dented or scratched until you own one. Words can't even describe how Great this snare is. Definately the Stradivarius of snare drums.

      Incredible!

      By Rockin4Him-wo6lp

      Comments about Ludwig Black Beauty Snare with Super-Sensitive Snares:

      This is an INSANEly great snare. A standard in the studio and on stage--beautiful. It screams tuned high or holds it down when tuned low. Great range, great crack, little ring (top head tighter than bottom). Beautiful snare! (That's why it's the black beauty!) Super sensitive snares...tap the head with your finger and hear them! A great centerpiece for a kit.
