For your intensely supreme viewing pleasure is this holy grail Transition badge Ludwig Super 401 snare drum. The Super 401 model designation signified a 5x14 lacquered brass shell, and was only briefly available from roughly 1958-1960. Very few original examples of these drums exist today, and we have never seen one in this condition. This drum is 100% original down to the tension rods, washers, heads, and wires. There are no extra holes or modifications. It is in stunning condition, and is most likely the finest original example in existence. Most importantly, it tunes up like an absolute champ and is pure sonic bliss to play. This drum would be right at home amongst the very finest of collections, studios, and stages. If you've been looking for this to complete your collection and only the finest example will do, this is the drum for you. Enjoy!
