  • Regular price $479.00


For your viewing pleasure is this excellent 1958-59 Ludwig 5x14 Pioneer snare drum, which sports a beautiful blue and brass Trans badge. This drum is in overall excellent condition with no extra holes or modifications of any kind, and has been very well cared for. Aside from the heads, it's all original down to the brass hoops. It is worth noting that many of these mahogany finished drums have checking/crazing to the finish from aging, which this drum does not have, only a few dings and small marks. The original early bottle opener P-83 strainer looks great and operates smoothly. The nickel hardware and brass hoops are beautiful, the top hoop has two hairline cracks which are cosmetic in nature and do not affect the sound, tuning, or playability. The edges are original and true. Most importantly, this drum tunes up like a dream and is a joy to play. Enjoy!
