Snare of the day

Ludwig 400 ‘Super Sensitive’

Tail end of last week, this stunning mid 60’s Ludwig 400 Super Sensitive arrived…

Ludwig 400 Super Sensitive snare drum 1966 at Nick Hopkin Drums www.nickhopkindrums.com

It belonged to a local jazz drummer, John Gibbon, who has had this in his collection for years but no longer uses it. Time for a new home! Keystone badge, serial number 29716 dates this drum around 1966. It is in original condition, bar the heads and snare wires. Complete, functional parallel snare mechanism, white felt tone control muffler, chrome on brass hoops.

This drum suffers from the common pitting to the shell, although its not too bad. It tunes up easily and sounds lovely right across the tuning range. If you’re looking for that classic supraphonic sound with a little more sensitivity from the wires, then this is your drum! More info on the website
