Overview

One of the most recorded snare drum models in history.

The Black Beauty Snare 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. An 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 limited number of Black Beauties is available each year from Ludwig USA.

The 80-year tradition of the Ludwig Black Beauty carries on as the ultimate snare drum in the industry.
