why you needing to know? good poll anyway... be good to see what other guys think!

Black beauty all the way Smile

Oh reason.. Sensitive metal sound with warmer wood characteristics, ease when it comes to tuning, and the amazing look! its called black beauty for a reason!

I always thought he BBeauty sounded a bit fatter than the same size supraphonic.

I've owned a bunch of ludwig snares over the years but one by one they all got sold in lean times between gigs - I certainly wish I had them now. The list of gear that musos end up owning and then losing would be astounding!!

My Fav of the lot was a skinny (3"?) wooden snare that had a single top and bottom lug, but the rods were off set from each other. It was both snappy and fat at the same time!!! But that was in the 80's and it was already old then.

Supraphonic, just because they are the benchmark for the modern metal shell snare... plus most drummers don't have $1000 to drop on a new black beauty or $5000 for a vintage one. You can pick up a good used supra for between $250-$500NZD and they sound awesome.

I can't really vote 'cuase I haven't owned any of those but I do have a supersensitive that sounds great !

Would love to compare some time.

Can I just add that the ludwig hammered bronz 14x6.5" is one of the best drums i've ever heard one on TM at the moment for fairly resonable coin.

Don't overpay ..about US$100 - 120 is currently a fair price (in the US).

I went the black beauty,
because of its versatility, I find that I can CRANK it for my funk end or drop it down for a big back beat, it would have to be the 14x6.5
whilst i don't own one myself i have heard one or two around the place.

looked at the pearl Sensitone NoB at Billy Hydes in Sydney the other day and would have to say that it sounded better than the new "black magics" that Ludwig has put out, it had more body.


Cheers,
T

P.S BKK; Mark knows ALOT about snares and kits, especially vintage, pretty sure he's constantly got something coming or going.

I think the poll is just limited to similar metal shell drums. Radiokings and Broadways are a different kettle
again I think.
