Kinda looks like die cast hoops, and the lugs look a little different than a Black Beauty. Also it might be a 5.5" depth?From a screen grab and blow-up, it looks to be a Ludwig 6.5" x 14" Black Beauty

Regardless, I don't think it matters that much because you can totally get that sound with a Ludwig 14x6.5 Black Beauty like you mentioned. You just need a medium-high tuning......... and it also helps to have a big auditorium with some stadium reverb, and maybe a few thousand people too.
Hard to say. Sarah’s ex (drummer and husband) was a DW endorser. Those lugs clearly aren’t the turret variety we’d associate with DW. Short of asking Aswin Sood directly, we will never know for certain. Of course front of house sound can alter a drum’s tone to virtually anything the sound guy desires so it’s impossible to tell.
