This is a gorgeous, black nickel over brass, 6.5″ x 14″ snare drum. The “Black Beauty” drums are some of the most recorded and sought after drums on the market. The “B” after “LB417” indicates that this is a B-Stock drum.
We carefully inspect and tune every drum before offering it for sale. Generally, some insignificant cosmetic flaw earns the “B-Stock” designation. Of the over 100 units we’ve sold, only one or two have had noticeable flaws of any kind. These B-Stock drums lack serial numbers as well.
This is a killer, brand new player’s instrument at a greatly reduced price.
This snare comes complete with factory standard hardware including the new P88 throw-off & P35 butt plate, Imperial lugs, Blue & Olive badge, and Ludwig brand heads.
