Get Totally Unique Looks With Sound You'll Love From A Ludwig 14" x 5" Raw Brass Snare Drum

Ludwig Raw Brass Snare Drums are the latest in a new crop of Black Beauty inspired snare drums from Ludwig. The shells are identical to the Black Beauty, prior to finishing. They are comprised of a single piece of 2.3mm hydro-formed brass, no patinas or lacquers are applied and each shell is left to age on its own. No two drums will look alike, but each one carries the distinct tonal palette of a Ludwig Brass Snare. 

Ludwig Raw Brass Snares are a bit drier than their Black Beauty Counterparts but have a rich set of overtones you can easily dial into your particular taste. Each snare drum features the new P-88 Throw Off and a new Butt Plate. All Ludwig Raw Brass Snare Drums are proudly made in Monroe, NC.

*Each Raw Brass Snare Drum Is Unique And Will Vary From The Item Pictured.
