The Ludwig Black Beauty snare drum is considered one of the most desirable drums ever made. The seamless, one piece brass beaded shell provides the legendary balanced metallic-yet-warm sound and ease of tuning that this classic drum is famous for, while the Supra-Phonic snares and classic P-85 snare throw-off provide the unmatched sensitivity professionals demand. The antique black anodized shell, chrome hardware, and imperial lugs make the Black Beauty strikingly beautiful.

The Ludwig 3" x 13" cuts with a bright, piercing tonality and is excellent for music that needs the ultimate sharp-edged snare sound. The 5" x 14" snare is highly versatile, capable of piercing rim shots when cranked up or fatter-bodied tonality when tuned down; excellent performer in a variety of styles. If you need even more volume and presence, then the 6-1/2" x 14" is for you; it delivers meaty rimshots with clarity and projection when slammed, but still retains ultimate sensitivity when lightly tapped.

  • Outstanding snare drum!

I have several snare drums from various makers, but this is my all time favorite "go to" snare drum. Very wide tuning range. You can get that high crack snare sound or that lower full bodied sound quite easily. P-85 strainer makes snare adjustments quick and holds settings well. This drum matches it's legendary status without a doubt.

Two brothers, William F. and Theo Ludwig, developed a bass drum pedal in 1909 that could play fast, forming "Ludwig and Ludwig."  Ringo Starr’s use of a Ludwig drumset in the 60’s made the brand well- known. Today, the "Most Famous Name On Drums and Percussion" offers a full line of drumsets, concert & marching drums, plus quality hardware.
