Leedy & Ludwig New Era
Today’s featured snare drum is this stunning Leedy & Ludwig New Era model.
This lovely snare drum arrived in a recent batch from the USA and is in a lovely aged white marine pearl. It features a 14 x 4.5″ 3 play shell with reinforcement rings and a white interior; the shell is date stamped 1953. All the hardware on this drum is the original Nickel over brass including the stick chopper hoops.
At 4.5″ this snare has a little more bite than a 5″ drum, with a nice rounded tone associated with drums from this era. It tunes up easily with no issues and sounds great high or low. A lovely drum that would suit players of all genres and style. More information on the website.
