WORTHY OF ANY SERIOUS LUDWIG COLLECTOR
This is indeed a grail snare drum for any serious Ludwig collector. ***THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR OF LUDWIG'S OYSTER BLACK PEARL WRAP, AND THE WRAP IS PERFECT.*** Dated JUL 24 1957, this Buddy Rich Super Classic features all original nickel over brass hardware and even sports the ORIGINAL blue plastic transition-era snare wires. To our knowledge, the only unoriginal parts are the heads, which consist of a 1960s Ludwig snare-side, and a brand new Ludwig Weather Master Medium Coated Batter Head.
