Ludwig is proud to introduce the latest addition to its line of legendary snare drums: new Black Magic Stainless Steel models. A true first for Ludwig, these new models expand the Black Magic format by incorporating mirror-polished, 1.5mm stainless steel shells for bright, cutting attack and mid-range overtone. Black Magic's black-nickel tube-lugs and appointments provide, sharp visual contrast, and tonal range is broadened with 2.3mm power-hoops. Models are available in 6.5x14” (MSRP $464.94) and 5x14” (MSRP $432.47).
“The new Stainless Steel snares are a lot of fun to play”, said Kevin Packard, Ludwig Marketing Manager. “A lot to time and artist input went into making these drums, and they are true performers for the player that really wants that high-impact attack.”
