Ludwig Super Classic
Today’s featured snare drum is this lovely 1960’s Ludwig Super Classic.
In aged white marine pearl, this drum has plenty of character in the original wrap – a discolouration that may match your drum set if it has spent it’s life in smokey clubs. The keystone badge with serial number 638627 dates this drum around 1968 and its in great original condition. This Super Classic is a 3 ply maple shell in 14 x 5″ with reinforcement rings and a clear interior (rather than the earlier drums that were painted white). All hardware is original, tight down to the snare wires.
This drum tunes up easily and sounds great across the range – at a higher tension it has amazing stick response and plenty of life for a brighter, jazzier vibe; tuned down lower it has that lovely warm, classic American vintage back beat to it, really nice.
If you’re looking for a classic American vintage snare with plenty of mojo, then this would be well worth a consideration. More information on the website.
