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.”
