Here’s a Sweetwater limited run of the new Ludwig Black Beauty snares being offered in different colors. This has been tuned up and played for a few rehearsals with a different batter head. The Ludwig batter is new.
Looking for other high end snares: copper, Noble & Cooley, Craviotto, etc...
I'm going to be fiddling with this snare a lot and I don't want to post a dozen different threads about it. Nobody wants that.
I got a 5x14 Black Beauty and I've only had an hour or so to play on it, but I like where it's going.
I'm going to be going for a low/medium universal...

I have two snare drums:
A 6.5"x14" hammered Ludwig black beauty with triple flanged hoops, and a 5.5"x14" Gretsch Brooklyn maple/poplar snare with 302 hoops. Both have 10 lugs. I recently decided to order myself a single Ludwig die cast batter side hoop, and will be receiving it soon. This...
I am new to the forum. I am curious to find where an old black beauty has wound up after 10 years and if there has been any new history that has been added. I've always loved vintage gear and hearing the history behind an instrument.
The drum was bought new in 1976/77 by Tommy Davitt (a...

Despite doing my best to be a well-rounded musician and dabbling with jazz, latin, and other genres; home base for me is really somewhere in the middle of rock, blues, and soul. A nice solid 4/4 backbeat with some ghost notes and a little swinging hop is heaven. 60's was good, 70's was ok too...
Here are 2 videos where I compared a Modern Black Beauty 5x14 with a Vintage 1977 Black Beauty 5x14.
In the first video you'll see a Modern BB as it comes out from the factory compared with a 1977 BB.
In the second video I took off the hardware from the Vintage BB and set it on the...

since this is my second thread, here are some gear pics, more precisely pictures of my three Ludwig snare drums. All bought used because these drums are going for ridiculously high prices here. All Wires got changed, either by me or the previous owner, which also goes for heads top and...
