A Little About The Grand Prize

The Ludwig Black Beauty made its debut in 1920 and is one of the most versatile, most recorded, and most sought-after snare drums of all time. A true American original, the Black Beauty provides a warm, round metallic tone that is often imitated, but never duplicated. This brand new Ludwig LB416T has a spun, seamless, beaded brass shell with black-nickel chrome plating. 
Features Include:
  • 1.2mm Seamless Brass Shell Black Nickel Plated
  • 2.3mm Steel Triple Flanged Hoops
  • 10-lug Configuration
  • Tube lugs
  • Vintage Keystone Badge
  • P88AC throw-off
  • Custom Engraving
  • Certificate of Authenticity
  • Retail Value: $1800
Due to their truly unique and difficult manufacturing process, only a very limited number of Black Beauties are available each year from Ludwig USA. This is literally a one-of-a-kind snare drum thanks to an amazing partnership between Rhythm Traders, Ludwig and famed engraver, drum tech, and vintage drum enthusiast, John Aldridge (www.drumscratcher.com).
