For 7 decades, the Black Beauty has been the snare of choice among demanding pros the world over.

The Ludwig Black Beauty Brass on Brass Snare is made with a solid brass shell that's machine drawn and spun into a seamless and great-sounding drum, then antique finished. The tone blends a musical combination of warmth with a metallic presence. This Beauty has excellent sensitivity at all volumes.

The die-cast hoops produce a focused tone and are capable of resounding rim shots and sharp cross-stick sounds. This version of the Black Beauty features brass tube lugs, brass die-cast batter and snare hoops, brass-plated P86 Millennium snare strainer, brass-plated P33 snare butt.
