      A snare that's starred on countless records for 70 years!

      Listen to any hit song from the '60s through today and chances are you're hearing a Ludwig snare drum. And the Supraphonic Black Beauty is among the most famous and legendary Ludwig snare drums of all. The Ludwig Black Beauty brass shell is constructed of a single sheet of metal that is machine drawn and spun into a seamless beaded drum, then black nickel plated with an exquisite finish. The shell provides a warm, round metallic tone.

      This Black Beauty responds with excellent sensitivity at all volumes. It features Ludwig's Imperial lugs, triple-flanged hoops, and a hand-hammered shell. The 70 year tradition of the Ludwig Black Beauty carries on as one of the most ultimate snare drums in the industry.

      Features

      • Shell: Hand-hammered brass
      • Finish: Black nickel-plated
      • Lugs: Imperial or "Classic" chrome

      You want that beautiful classic snare drum sound, then order this drum today!

          this drum is worth every penny, and sounds amazing. So crisp, and fat. It is the ultimate snare drum. Get it if you can, there is nothing like it.

          Great snare - super sensitive - worth the money

          By Jack Ogilvie

          from atlanta, ga

          Comments about Ludwig Supra-Phonic Black Beauty Hammered Snare Drum:

          Exaxtly what you want in a brass snare regarding the sound. Looks couldn't be better - love how this drum looks with my black sparkle kit.

          Only dissappointment was Ludwig snares / snare strainer - it's a cheap original ludwig. Would buy it again.
          It's a great snare but it's expensive. The sound is fantastic - loud, great sustain, exactly what I was looking for in a brass drum. I also love the look - but Ludwig could have upgraded the snare strainer. My DW maple snare has such a nice strainer and it was about the same price...

          WOW!!!

          Comments about Ludwig Supra-Phonic Black Beauty Hammered Snare Drum:

          I've read countless reviews on countless snares for countless months. After playing most of my top 5, this one stood out above the rest. My only dilemma was the choice between the 5x14 or the 6.5x14. I went with the 5x14 and I'm glad I did. The versitility is unreal. In the month I've had this snare I've used it at outdoor venues, night clubs, weddings, and country clubs. The sensitivity is remarkable, tap it and you hear it or whail on it and it really cuts. You will NOT be disappointed with this drum!!!
