Ludwig – 5×14″ 1930s Anniversary Model, Nickel Over Brass. Looks Bad. Sounds Great!! $995.00

To quote the late great Charlie Daniels, “Ain’t good lookin’ but it he sure can play”. This 1930 Ludwig nickel over brass shell is arguably the best sounding snare shell ever made. The heavy brass 2 piece shell with rolled over/sealed edges set the standard for top quality snares drums almost a hundred years ago, that still stands today. This is the same shell made famous by the legendary Ludwig Black Beauty.

While this drum sounds as spectacular as you’d expect, it’s not exactly what I’d call a “looker”. Even though we gave it a thorough cleaning, it still comes up short in the looks department. The pics don’t lie, very pitted finish, non original hoops, non original throw off that required an extra hole.

Look on the bright side. If you take this drum to a gig, it’s very unlikely anyone will steal it.
