#22, Bun E. Carlos’s Ludwig 1969 Black Diamond Supersensitive Snare drum, Bob Yeager. 14×5.5. $1,495
14×5.5. SN 646841
A true Ludwig rarity, this is the only wood shell Super Sensitive snare drum built after 1950 I’ve ever come across!
Ludwig custom built this drum for Bob Yeager. Yeager was the founder of the Hollywood Pro Drum Shop in Los Angeles and a symphonic session drummer.
The drum has an extra grommeted vent hole on the 5.5” deep shell and symphonic cable wire snares.
The drum’s construction is three ply maple with a maple interior, and was built without a tone control.
Bob was known for liking a cold beverage and his namesake drumstick is labeled “Pro-Mark 502 Bob Yeager”.
502 is the DUI code number for the California Highway Patrol!
This is a very special one of a kind snare drum.
