  • Well, it's a Pretty Drum...

The Black Beauty is both: beautiful and, well, black. Moreover, they are wonderfully sounding drums. I have to say, you are buying the Black Beauty image more than an outstanding sound. I have played many brass snare drums and the BB sounds about the same as any other, for the most part. The good news is that I once got to hammer away on a classic 1928 Black Beauty with its original calfskin heads and gut snares and it didn't sound radically different from the modern version.The bad is, to my ear, the Pearl version has a nicer overall tone. All that said, you can't beat the feel and look of the Black Beauty and if you must have one, we all will understand! :D
