An industry-recognised gold-standard in taste and tonality, the Black Beauty snare drum range from Ludwig has remained one of the most sought-after Snares for almost a century.

A True American Workhorse

If you're seeking true tone and performance, nothing will satisfy you like the real-deal. Often imitated but never duplicated, the Black Beauty series has made a legend of itself, from high-end recording facilities to home studios alike.

But the LB717T doesn't just put its feet up and rest on its laurels - the modern iterations of the Black Beauty series not only maintain the high standards of the true American original, but they exceed them - providing better tone, aesthetics and playability than ever before.

Ludwig LB417T 6.5x14" Black Beauty Snare Features:

  • Legendary Black Beauty Tone
  • 6.5"x14" Shell Size
  • Smooth Shell with Tube Lugs
  • Supraphonic Snares
  • Black Brass Chrome finish

Legendary Tonality

With its 14 inch span, the LB417T delivers plenty of bash for your buck. Bigger and bolder than ever, the body delivers a classic rich tone that is suitable for so many styles of playing.

Fitted with a stunning set of 10 tube lugs and triple flanged hoops, this legendary snare is fully-capable of delivering an open and articulate sound when required.

Expert Craftsmanship

Crafted immaculately from Black Brass, the seamless shell proves just how the Black Beauty received its iconic name.

One of the most musically sensitive materials, the single-ply, the seamless Black Brass shell provides the LB417T with exceptional fullness and articulation, warm metallic tones as well as a versatile tuning range.
