  • Drum shell: Nickel plated brass, black
  • Finish: Black Nickel-Over-Brass
  • Black die cast hoops
  • Tube lugs
  • 10 Lugs per side

My new Ludwig BM snare drum was delivered on-time, carefully packed and with its paperwork attached, so full marks to Thomann, who were also extremely helpful and courteous on the phone.

I'd read some mixed reviews when I researched online, but I have to say that the Black Magic looks splendid, and sounded great straight from the box; no need to change any heads, or replace snare strainers as had been suggested elsewhere (I sometimes wonder just what great players these fastidious reviewers must be to notice and raise what are non-existent issues to the majority of us. I was once in a Birmingham Music Store when the great Louis Bellson rushed in for a pair of sticks to practise with in his hotel room opposite; when asked which model he'd prefer, he just said anything you've got handy, thanked them for their refusal to charge him and rushed out of the shop again!).

I have tweaked the standard heads fractionally, to my own taste, but only a quarter of a turn, and I like to have an Evans E-Ring on slightly to dampen the echo, but the drum itself is crisp and clear, with a sharp, cutting tone, crackling rim-shots and plenty of power for a 5.5 inch shell, which has a wonderful quality finish and appearance to it and would match any kit it sat with.

The Ludwig heads that come with the drum are perfectly adequate, crisp and coated slightly for occasional brush use - I had a new Evans head ready to fit, but I haven't bothered. The strainer mechanism is positive and buzz-free. Of course the product is manufactured in Taiwan, but presumably to Ludwig's own specs. and quality control, and most drums have been of Far Eastern origin for over a decade, to the benefit of everyone's budgets. It isn't a Black Beauty, but most working drummers like me wouldn't gain as much as the hundreds of extra euros would indicate. The additional fact that the drum from Thomann cost me 200 euros less, (with the additional bonus of free European postage), than any other outlet could quote, makes this instrument a terrific bargain. It's put a smile on my face, and has effortlessly perked up my whole kit, and hopefully my own playing.
