About This Listing

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.

Ludwig’s legendary Black Beauty snare drum has undergone an amazing transformation. The LB408 Black Beauty is bigger, bolder, and more brash than ever. The new 8"x14” size delivers even more body and rich classic tone that will speak to all musical styles and a new generation of players. For players that want “a little something extra” when it comes to their snare drum sound, this beauty is outfitted with Ludwig’s classic imperial lugs and triple-flange hoops for an open, articulate sound.
