This listing is for a Ludwig LB417 14x6.5” 10-Lug “Black Beauty” Snare Drum that’s in absolutely mint condition, and without any flaw.  The drum includes it’s original packaging as well.

The legendary Ludwig Black Beauty snare drum starts with a single sheet of brass. It's machine drawn and spun into a seamless beaded shell, then chrome plated to an exquisite finish. An American classic, the Black Beauty delivers a warm, fat, metallic tone that cuts through a thick mix like nothing else. Fitted with Ludwig's P88 Supraphonic strainer, the Black Beauty is super responsive, no matter how hard or soft you hit it. Due to a complex manufacturing process, they're not easy to make, so the Black Beauty is only available in limited quantities each year from Ludwig USA. Many DrumPickers drummers will tell you, this is one snare you'll want to keep for a lifetime.
