Snare of the day

Ludwig Pioneer early 60’s

Today’s selected snare drum arrived at the shop this afternoon. Its an early 1960’s, pre serial Ludwig Pioneer in a stunning white pearl.

This snare drum actually came into our shop late last year and sold to a local drummer. Today he part ex’d it against something else, so She’s back on the racks again! Nickel on brass lugs, snare butt and bottom hoop; chrome top hoop and P83 strainer. Fitted with a mix of Remo / Evans heads and Puresound wires.

The wrap is in excellent condition and is tight with no issues. 3 ply shell with re-rings and white interior. Keystone badge, pre-serial number – I guess around ’60 / ’61. The drum is in nice shape with some minimal pitting to the top hoop; tunes up easily and gives a nice warm but open sound. Great for studio playing. Get that vintage Mojo going with this tuned medium and a wallet on it!
