I don’t think many of the new drums are out in the wild yet, so we will have to wait to get some specific reports on that. My suspicion is that these new ones are pretty much the same as the most recent Black Magic, but now have an import version of the P88 throwoff (Shane talks about the difference in the video).Could anyone tell me the difference between the New Ludwig Universal Brass Snare Drums,and the Ludwig Black Magic Range,Only i have a 13"x7" Black Magic with Black Tube Lugs,and Diecast Hoops,the only difference i can see is the Name Plate,or is there something that i've missed.
The Black Magic brass snares received a “refresh” a couple of years ago and stopped coming with black hardware and die cast hoops (this was unfortunate IMO) and moved to chrome hardware and triple flanged hoops. At that point they became a pretty straight copy of a Pork Pie BOB, and rather unremarkable in that so many other companies were offering a very similar drum.
At first glance, I don’t see much apart from the throwoff that would have changed between the Black Magic brass and the Universal Brass.
