  • Regular price $725.00


For your viewing pleasure is this vintage Ludwig 5.5x14 Jazz Festival snare drum in a strong original White Marine Pearl. This is the earlier 5.5" depth from before they switched to the 5". Aside from the heads and wires, it's 100% original down to the chrome hardware, brass hoops, and red felt baseball bat muffler. It's in fantastic condition, and there are no extra holes or modifications of any kind. There is small ding in the top lip of the top hoop which does not affect the roundness or tuning (see last pic), and there is a name lightly engraved in two places on just the top hoop and once on bottom hoop (It's not very noticeable). The pre-serial keystone badge is nice and tight. The bearing edges are true and original, and the drum tunes up easily and sounds magnificent. These snares are a joy to own and play. Enjoy!
