Delivers the classic tone that players have come to expect from Ludwig”with a modern flair.

Inspired by the Ludwig Coliseum, this 14" x 8" Black Magic Snare Drum is the ultimate in low-bodied power and projection.

This design is based on Ludwig's legendary Black Beauty snare drums, which have long been the optimal choice for the touring and recording drummer in need of volume, tonal clarity, and optimal snare response. As the originator of the black nickel-over-brass shell composition, Ludwig has gone one step further with this Black Magic snare. A classic formula for a more aggressive musical age, Black Magic snare drums share the same shell type with the Black Beauty, but with upgrades like matching die-cast hoops for increased volume, and tube-style lugs for maximum shell resonance.

  • 14" x 8" shell size
  • Black nickel-over-brass shell

Its unusual 8" depth puts the magic in the tone of the Black Magic snare.

Comments about Ludwig Black Magic Snare Drum:

After removing the snare from it's box, I knew this baby was going to be fantastic. The sound of this snare is tight ,throaty,and resonent. solid punch when tuned medium , and solid crack when tuned high.The die cast hoops give great rim shots and add that wonderful crack! the shell produces the warmth of brass with a snappy snare sound. It has replaced my Yamaha custom Maple as my snare drum of choice.. kudos to Ludwig
