When Ludwig's Universal Series of snare drums first hit the scene in the 1920s, their wide-ranging sound and ease of use made them a mainstay among gigging and recording drummers of the time.

With the Ludwig Universal Black Brass snare, a classic drum reemerges for a new generation of players, with a clear focus on sound quality and versatility.
Its brass shell exudes a full-bodied warmth and a mellowness that blend perfectly in many applications, with die-cast hoops adding extra sharpness and "crack" to rimshots and side-sticked passages.
Top-quality hardware throughout ensures each stroke rings through loud and clear, delivering a purer, more natural sound devoid of those pesky vibrations, overtones, and other unwanted elements in your sound.
Channel a century of lauded Ludwig tone with the Universal Black Brass Snare Drum!

Ludwig's brass snare drums are renowned for their luscious warmth and crispness, making them a great fit in everything from jazz fusion and R&B to blast beat-filled death metal and more. That said, a snare sounds only as exceptional as its hardware, something Ludwig knows all too well. The Universal Black Brass snare boasts some of the manufacturer's highest performing components to date, improving on its already delectable tone by smoothing out many of the unwanted artifacts that can occur. Its P88I throw off gives you complete control over snare tension to dial in that perfect pop and crack, made better with a P35 butt plate to anchor everything in place. This drum's slightly larger tube lugs not only add a dash of visual elegance - drummers constantly turn to solid-brass lugs such as these, thanks to their incredible durability, which is a hallmark of a reliable snare for the stage and studio. Die-cast hoops round out this rock-solid snare, producing a drier, more focused sound with a noticeable volume boost and improved tuning stability.

* Die-cast hoops deliver sharper rimshots and an overall volume increase
