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.
