Product Overview

Often imitated, never duplicated, Ludwig snare drums have been the industry standard since 1911. The tradition and quality continues on today better than ever with a sound that could only be Ludwig. Listen to any hit song from the 60's through today and chances are you're hearing a Ludwig Snare Drum. Ludwig Snare Drums are the most toured and recorded snare drum in the world and with good reason. From the smooth round perfection of the bearing edge to the precision cut of the snare bed, Ludwig Snare Drums are in a league of their own.

One of the primary reasons Ludwig is "The Most Famous Name On Drums" is the legendary Black Beauty Snare Drum. The drum is constructed of a single sheet of brass that is machine drawn into a seamless beaded shell. However, due to their truly unique and difficult manufacturing process, only a very limited number of Black Beauties are available each year from Ludwig USA. A true American original, the Black Beauty responds with excellent sensitivity at all volumes, providing a warm, round metallic tone that is often imitated, but never duplicated.

This Ludwig LB417KTWM Black Beauty Snare Drum model is 6.5" x 14". It features a hand hammered shell, tube lugs, triple-flange hoops, and a beautiful black nickel finish.
