Hard to Find Vintage Ludwig Keystone Badge 4" X 14" DOWNBEAT Snare Drum, CHROME OVER BRASS HOOPS allow the 4" shell to breathe dates from 1965,  White shell interior, 8 Horizontal Downbeat lugs, Ludwig Throwoff works perfectly, White Baseball Bat Muffler works PERFECTLY! White Marine Pearl Wrap is Original and VERY CLEAN!!  Light wear on the hoops/hardware!! TERRIFIC CONDITION!!!  

What first struck me about this 4" is how fat it sounds. It has a depth to it that no modern Pearl Free-Floater or Yamaha piccolo can match. It's fairly dry, wonderfully responsive and remarkably punchy. It's one of the best thinner snares I've ever heard.

And if you're a collector, well hell, this is a great Ludwig to have!  So do yourself a favor and grab this CLEAN 19645 Vintage Ludwig WMP 4" X 14" Downbeat Snare with COB HOOPS!!

And hang onto it and keep it it great condition. It will only appreciate in value over the years.
