For your viewing pleasure is this very excellent example of a 1969 5"x14" Ludwig Super 400 Ludaloy Supraphonic snare drum (date stamped April 17 1969). It is 100% original in every way with exception of nice replacement Remo heads. The chrome is extraordinarily clean, as you may know, these drums are notorious for pitting and flaking. Other than a few scratches in the panel to the left of the butt plate towards the bottom, it is minty clean. There are no dings or dents. This drum was made right as Ludwig first started introducing the P-85 strainers, and the P-85 on this baby is extremely clean and operates very smoothly. It features a Keystone badge with six digit serial number 715XXX. It has the era correct large muffler knob, which is in good working order. All tension rods and washers are original, and the original Ludwig wires look and sound great. There are no extra holes or modifications of any kind. It's difficult finding '60s keystone Supraphonics in this condition, so if you've been looking for a nice one - don't hesitate. This drum tunes up like an absolute champ and sounds amazing. It would be right at home amongst the finest of collections or recording studios, or on any stage. Ready to play right out of the box. Enjoy!
