Ludwig Late 70s Rare Chrome Over Wood 5×14 Jazz Festival Snare Drum. Excellent. $299
Here’s a drum you don’t see every day. The drum appears to be a late 1970s Jazz festival is excellent condition however it has the rounded Standard style lugs. Why? I don’t know. Were they switched? Did they run out of Bowtie lugs? Was this supposed to be a Standard model drum but they used the regular Blue/Olive badge instead of the Standard badge? I would welcome any input on this drum. Everything about the drum is excellent. Date stamped “589” I assume means May of 1989 however the Blue/Olive badge and 3132914 serial number should indicate the drum was made in the late 1970s. Nothing broken, missing or damaged. Whatever it is, it’s a beautiful snare in excellent condition.
