For your supreme viewing pleasure is this breathtaking vintage Ludwig & Ludwig Professional Model snare drum in rare and coveted Lavender Pearl. This drum was meticulously restored by the expert hands of the esteemed Mr. Joey "Boom" Mekler. This 5x14 10-lug model dates to 1927-29, and features Ludwig's Professional strainer and butt. It's made with a wonderful single ply solid maple shell, and is in terrific condition with all original nickel hardware which shows minimal wear and lots of shine. Like most of the snares of this era, an electric drum heater was installed, likely from the factory, to maintain the calf heads tuning. It has since been removed and a chrome grommet installed in its place. There are no other modifications or additional holes. This drum tunes up beautifully and has an excellent, crisp, warm and woody sound signature sound that can only be realized with a nearly 100 year old solid shell drum. Enjoy!
