    Comments about Ludwig Black Beauty Snare with Super-Sensitive Snares:

    If you think this drum sounds good now, you should hear it with adjustable individual snares. The sound I was able to achieve was unbelievable.

    By Far, The Finest Snare Drum Ever Made

    By Roger Locke

    from Rocklin/Roseville, Ca.

    Comments about Ludwig Black Beauty Snare with Super-Sensitive Snares:

    The LB-419B is, in my ,the best sounding snare drum that has ever been produced. This Stellar 1920s design has been copied by every major drum manufacturer over the past 80 plus years, with none even coming close to duplicating the legendary sound it produces. More expensive than some studio quality drum kits but worth every penny and built to outlast us all. (Get a Padded Hard Case and Use it!) Once you Own one, Play one, Hear one, The Hunt for the ever elusive ultimate snare drum is over. There is only One snare drum that even comes close to sounding as good, and that's Its cousin the LM-411. One of the best traits is the ease of dialing it in, Like a Thoroughbred Racehorse it is extremely sensitive to the wide varience of heads and tuning ranges and it is vitually impossible to tune it wrong. Words cant even begin to describe how good this snare is, you have to experiece it. Even the looks of it will stop you dead in your tracks, It's Stunning.

    Finest Snare Ever Made

    By Technerd

    from Roseville, Ca.

    Comments about Ludwig Black Beauty Snare with Super-Sensitive Snares:

    The Ludwig 6 1/2"x14" Black Beauty NOB(anodized black nickel over brass)with the P-70 Super Sensitive Snare Strainer is by far the best sounding snare drum that has ever been produced. Copied countless times by All of the major drum builders, yet never able to even come close to duplicating this 1920s stellar design. More expensive than some studio quality drum kits/sets but worth every penny. Once you own it/play it/hear it you wil never want another. Buy a Hard case to go with it because you have no idea how upset you'll be if it gets dented or scratched until you own one. Words can't even describe how Great this snare is. Definately the Stradivarius of snare drums.

    Incredible!

    By Rockin4Him-wo6lp

    Comments about Ludwig Black Beauty Snare with Super-Sensitive Snares:

    This is an INSANEly great snare. A standard in the studio and on stage--beautiful. It screams tuned high or holds it down when tuned low. Great range, great crack, little ring (top head tighter than bottom). Beautiful snare! (That's why it's the black beauty!) Super sensitive snares...tap the head with your finger and hear them! A great centerpiece for a kit.
