Ludwig – Vintage, 5×14″, Super Sensitive, Late 1920s – Early 1930s, Nickel Over Brass, Snare Drum, Beautiful! PERFECT, Except…- $2,995.00

As seen in the 1935 Ludwig Catalog. Vintage, late 1920s – early 1930s, 5×14″ Super Sensitive, nickel over brass 2 piece shell, snare drum with 10 tube lugs, top and bottom snare strainers and single flanged nickel over brass hoops. It’s all there, everything works, looks and sounds amazing. The drum is in stunning condition, HOWEVER…at some point, a 1960s Ludwig “baseball bat” muffler was installed requiring 2 extra holes (wah-wah-wahhh!). We removed the muffler and installed an era correct muffler knob to fill the larger of the 2 extra holes. The remaining smaller hole is visible above and slightly off center from the replaced knob. (See Pics) in this drums. The “correct” muffler could still be installed using the existing larger hole and requiring 2 additional holes to be drilled on either side.

The “extra’ snare wires under the top head were designed to give better brush response. A great drum for jazz or orchestral duties. Calf Leedy, UKA drum head on the snare side.
