Ludwig Black Beauty 8-Lug Snare Drum – Drummer’s Review

Here’s our review of a set of a Ludwig Black Beauty 8-lug snare drum, featuring…

  • 14″ x 5″ shell (14″ x 6.5″ also available),
  • 1.2mm seamless brass, black nickel plated shell,
  • 8 x Imperial lugs,
  • 2.3mm triple flanged hoops,
  • Ludwig P88 snare throw off,
  • 20-strand snare wire,
  • Ludwig Heavy Weather-Master batter / thin clear snare-side heads.

Ludwig Drums say…”The industry’s most revered snare drum takes on a new standard configuration! Introducing the new Black Beauty 8-lug. This drum is outfitted with standard Phonic series hardware: imperial lugs, 2.3mm triple-flanged hoops, P88 throw-off, and P35 butt-plate. This traditional lug configuration results in a drum with an elevated response that brings out a grittier tone with an enhanced presence in the sustain.”
