Since 1911, Ludwig has been the go-to choice of percussionists worldwide due to the exceptional craftsmanship of each and every drum they construct - but perhaps over anything else in their line, the Black Beauty snare may be the most legendary. For over 80 years and counting, the Ludwig Black Beauty has remained the gold standard of snares. A true American classic, the Black Beauty's warm, metallic tone, eye-catching finish and durability is unmatched, and this section has plenty to choose from.
As you browse this catalog, you'll notice that the Black Beauty comes in a variety of styles. For example, the Supraphonic Black Beauty Snare Drum features an antique black anodized shell, chrome hardware and imperial lugs to give it an appearance that's as striking as it sounds. Rimshots can be played with top-notch clarity and projection on this killer snare, yet it still retains incredible sensitivity when played softly. Another popular Black Beauty snare is the Brass on Brass Snare Drum. The die-cast hoops on this drum help to produce a focused sound, while the solid brass shell that's machine drawn and spun give it a look that certainly won't go unnoticed.
And your options don't end there. In fact, one of the best-selling Black Beauty snares has a Super-Sensitive strainer and a P-70 throw-off. Bursting with resonance through countless whacks and thwacks, the Super-Sensitive Black Beauty Snare is built specifically with discerning concert professionals in mind. Give the Super-Sensitive Black Beauty Snare a shot and see for yourself why it's preferred by stage and studio veterans alike.
While you're at it, you'll definitely want to take a look at your other options in this catalog too, including the Hand-hammered Black Beauty Snare Drum with Tube Style Lugs, and the Supraphonic Black Beauty Piccolo Snare Drum. In the end, just remember that when you choose a Black Beauty snare, you're going with a drum that lead Ludwig to become the most famous name in percussion instruments.
