Ludwig Black Beauty Snare Drum
Ludwig Drums is a US manufacturer of percussion instruments, established in 1909 by William F. & Theobald Ludwig, sons of a German immigrant to the United States. William Jr. had been a professional drummer, playing with circuses and touring vaudeville shows, he and his brother, Theobald, opened a drum shop in Chicago; they called it Ludwig & Ludwig. The brand achieved significant popularity in the 1960s due to the endorsement of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
The Black Beauty name probably made Ludwig the legendary name it is today. One of the most imitated snare drums around that can never be duplicated! A true American Classic snare drum made from a single sheet of brass that becomes seamless and nickel plated.
It has a smooth brass shell with a metallic brass finish and reliable chrome hardware. The brass shell produces metallic, bright tones that retains a certain sensitive quality, not only that the snare is impressively responsive and retains this sensitivity at all volumes. Imperial lugs offer consistent and reliable tuning throughout your performance and work beautifully. This outstanding snare drum is a must for any drummer and would look and sound amazing with any drum kit!
