    Comments about Ludwig Black Beauty Snare Drum 14 x 8 in.:

    I record and perform with my drums and am always looking for the best sound both live and in the studio. I love how responsive and colorful this snare is. Some snares sound like metal in a really unpleasant, jarring way. This snare is warm yet offers a lot of bright metallic depth that I could not get from my other snares.
