One of the primary reasons Ludwig is the most famous name on drums, is because of the legendary Black Beauty Snare Drum. The Ludwig Black Beauty brass shell is constructed of a single sheet of brass that is machine drawn and spun into a seamless beaded drum, then black nickel plated with a beautifully exquisite finish. The shell provides a warm, round metallic tone. With the P85 Supraphonic strainer, this Black Beauty responds with excellent sensitivity at all volumes. The 70 year tradition of the Ludwig Black Beauty carries on as the ultimate snare drum in the industry. Optional upgrades are available for this drum. If you choose an upgrade, the new parts will be installed on the drum. The original part(s) will not be included. For example, if you choose the die-cast hoops upgrade, you will not receive the original triple-flange hoops.
