For your viewing pleasure is this stellar Ludwig nickel over brass, heavy two piece shell, 10-Lug Professional "All-Metal", 5x14 "All-Around Model" snare drum as cataloged by Ludwig in the 1920s. A previous owner installed a Super Sensitive strainer in the past and it was changed back to a period correct strainer. It's in good condition with one dent in the shell, shown in pics. It is completely original except for modern heads, snare wires, and some replaced tension rods, which are vintage. There is an incidental bump in the top bearing edge that can be seen in pic, which is merely cosmetic in nature, and does not affect the tuning, sound, or the way the head fits. The modern heads fit well. As is the case with nearly all of these, there are a few very light dings/scratches. It has an overall beautiful well cared for look, with just some light nickel wear hear and there. There are no additional extra holes or modifications aside from when it was changed over from a Super Sensitive as previously mentioned. This is the exact same heavy two piece shell and construction used on the iconic Black Beauties of the '20s, and would be right at home among the finest of recording studios, or stages. It tunes up perfectly and sounds magical. This drum needs to be played and enjoyed for the next hundred years to come. Enjoy!
