Ludwig Black Beauty 6.5″
OK, so it’s midnight and I’m writing a very late / early ‘snare of the day’ feature on this Ludwig Black Beauty snare drum. Maybe you’re just crashing in from the pub (UK) or maybe you’ve just finished your week in work (USA); I’m sat in bed with a cup of tea listening to Pink Floyd!
There’s a reason so many people go on about the Black Beauty snare drum. Many owners are no longer searching for that snare drum sound because they’ve found it. Believe the hype! This 14 x 6.5″ sounds stunning and may quench your snare thirst for a little while…
This particular drum dates from the 90’s and is fitted with a super sensitive strainer. For me, this means the drum so much more to offer; the classic brass Black Beauty sound along with great sensitivity of the wires and the ability to finely tune the buzz to get an almost perfect snare sound. I could go on. But simply this drum sounds awesome. Last Black Beauty in the shop, no more en route at the moment. More information on the website
