Ludwig early 60's COB Super Sensitive 5-1/2 by 14 snare



A very hard to find, Ludwig Chrome over brass (COB) 10 lug, 5-1/2" by 14", Super-Sensitive snare drum from the early 1960's!

I have been very actively selling vintage drums for 22 years,and this is only the second drum like this I have had in that period!

I sold the last one for $1,100!

Drum DOES NOT have serial numbers on the badge,and has the crimped in snare beds on the sides.

It also has the round muffler that uses a round knob to is pushed in very slightly........

Drum has Chrome Over Brass hoops top and bottom.
TOP hoop is in very good-excellent shape!
The bottom hoop has more wear on it then the top one. I would rate it as in Good condition.
The BOTTOM hoop has a area around 3/4" wide w it has a bend in it. It is pushed in around 1/8"...Not all that bad.
T are also a 1/16" wide nick,and a 1/8" wide nick on the hoop,but they don't push in the hoop at all.

Overall, drum is in Good-Very Good condition-..........t are quite a few LIGHT scratches going around the shell.............

T are NO EXTRA HOLES ADDED to the drum!......

This drum has the original 1960's Ludwig snare wires, but it is missing 2 out of the 20 wires.

Drum has the correct Ludwig "strainer guards" to protect the strainer.
