Everything about the Ludwig Black Magic snare drum points to Ludwig's legendary Black Beauty snare drums: from the beaded black nickel-over-brass shell to the tube lugs and spirit trapped within. But this beauty of a snare is available at a working drummer's price. Its thinner, welded (rather than hand-spun) shell paired with matching die-cast hoops and low-mass hardware invoke a crisper, breathier version of the classic Black Beauty body and attack. All the other qualities you love in the BB are intact: the Black Magic's voice is full, dynamics are sensitive, and the bark is severe. Whether you're looking to save a buck on a Black Beauty clone or in the market for a more delicate variation on a theme, you'll be pleased with the Ludwig Black Magic snare drum.
