Ludwig Supraphonic Black Beauty Snare Drum 14 x 6.5 in.
The Black Beauty has been a Ludwig tradition for 70 years. The shell is constructed of a single sheet of brass that is machine drawn and spun into a seamless great sounding drum, then Black Antiqued finished. 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 Supraphonic 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. If you need even more volume and presence, this 14 x 6-1/2" snare is for you. It delivers meaty rimshots with clarity and projection when slammed, but still retains ultimate sensitivity when lightly tapped.
