The word From the Shop:
"The classic studio snare drum, every drummer who spends time under microphones has one of these drums in their collection. They produce a signature sound that is often imitated but never duplicated. It is one of those drums you can do anything with, the secret weapon."

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 is available each year from Ludwig USA.
