For your viewing pleasure is this stellar Ludwig nickel over brass, heavy two piece shell, Professional "All-Metal", 4x14 "Dance Model" snare drum (as cataloged by Ludwig in the 20s). It features 8 lugs, and the Ludwig Pat Pending strainer, which dates the drum between 1918-1925. It's in great shape, and hard to believe it is nearing 100 years in age. It is completely original except for modern heads and some vintage 1960s Ludwig wires (the wires are missing one strand but still sound great). The tension rods and clips are also original. There are a couple very tiny/light dings, but this drum has an overall great look and has been very well cared for. The original Pat Pending strainer operates perfectly, and looks great. There are no extra holes or modifications of any kind. This is the exact same heavy two piece shell and construction used on the iconic 4x14 Black Beauties of the time, and would be the ultimate addition to any recording studio, stage, or collection. This drum tunes up perfectly. It can and should be played and enjoyed for many years to come. Enjoy!
