amazing!

By punkdude908

from long island, ny

Comments about Ludwig Black Magic Snare:

this snare is great for the money. it's like a black beauty but half the price and its still a ludwig! all i did was change the batter head to a remo emperor x. this snare sounds amazing. a great alternative to the black beauty. i have the 6.5x14 and its LOUD! it cuts through everything and compliments my kit. its super sensitive. i would recommend this snare to anyone.

What a killer snare

By Chad Salvaggio

from Lemoyne, PA 17043

Comments about Ludwig Black Magic Snare:

What can you really say about a snare that cover's all style's for a very reasonable price to preformance ratio? Well, shall I start with an old fashioned THANK YOU! I must say as one who has a few high dollar/versitile snare drum's, this one moved to the front of the "line" as soon as I played it! Honestly, unless you're not a fan of metal shelled snare's, I urge you to check this drum out A.S.A.P., the size 7 x 13 is one of the most versitile size's on the market, and this drum can do it all except maybe Blue Grass(which doesn't usually have drum's anyway) a killer snare all around and worth EVERY PENNY! Once again, Thank You Ludwig for making a sweetheart of a snare, and Thank You Guitar Center for great pricing and a smooth transaction. A true win win scenerio!

Projection, style, satisfaction...this snare delivers!!

By Graham

from Cuyahoga Falls, OH

Comments about Ludwig Black Magic Snare:

I knew I wanted a brass snare drum...I've played them in the past. I was unsure what brand to buy & thought why not try the brand everyone refers to. I had a feelin'...& Ludwig delivered. Ludwig's decription is right on the money... "volume, tonal clarity" etc. These snare drums definately have a contemporary edge to them. I purchased the 6.5 x 14, and it's set-up with an Evans Hazy 300 & Reverse dot. I tuned the resonant head snug & the batter a little softer than usual for a more "pop" sound. The snare's naturally "fat" & it sounds great. The Black Magic is worth money...both sound & quality...satisfaction!!

Great snare!

By TOM HARRISON

from Chicago. Il

Comments about Ludwig Black Magic Snare:

Bought this snare to upgrade my birch snare that came with my Element Lacquer kit (which is a very decent stock snare ). With the batter tuned high I'm very happy with the tone, feel, and overall sound of this drum. I've always liked the sound of the metal Ludwig snare drums and this drum did not disappoint me. Definitely a nice upgrade. Great crack, nice sounding rolls, and I really like the timbre of this drum.

Beautiful sounding snare for the price!

By Brad

Comments about Ludwig Black Magic Snare:

Beautiful sounding snare drum! I pretty much tune mine the same with the resonant head cranked up to give it that 'balloon popping' sound. Buzz rolls cut through the band way more I notice. It's just very loud drum, but it also has very nice rings overtones. I would still muffle it a little bit during recording but definitely not live. And I thought the stock heads sounded just fine. I don't think you must change the heads out of the box. The difference will be marginal.
