Overview

The 14" x 8" Ludwig Black Magic Snare Drum is inspired by the Ludwig Coliseum. It may be the ultimate in low-bodied power and projection.

Based on Ludwig's legendary Black Beauty snare drums-long the optimal choice for touring and recording drummers in need of volume, tonal clarity, and optimal snare response-Ludwig has gone one step further with the Black Magic snare. A classic formula for a more aggressive musical age, Black Magic snare drums share the same shell type with the Black Beauty, but with upgrades like matching die-cast hoops for increased volume, and tube-style lugs for maximum shell resonance.

Features
  • 14" x 8" shell size
  • Black nickel-over-brass shell

Curshing backbeat, beautiful sensitivity.

By Conor Burridge

from Gloucestershire, UK

Ludwig command the market when it comes to metal snares, and with this it's easy to see why. Everything works with this to make it seriously powerful drum, the brass shell, the cavernous depth, the die-cast hoops and the tube lugs all give this a devastating backbeat, comparable to a shotgun, great for a load of contemporary styles from alternative rock right through to metal. However, despite the depth, it's actually more sensitive under the stick than the 6.5" depth model, with potential for great press and buzz rolls, and also ghost notes in jazz, with the exact same tuning of super tight reso head and medium tight batter head. This must be the most versatile 8" depth snare in the world right now, I could see myself tuning this up and using the immense power to have a really commanding crack in funk and dance as well. Anyone who is looking for a snare that can tackle anything playing in a modern band can throw at it would do well to try this out.
