Rare Made in Chicago Ludwig Classic Maple DEEP 6.5" X 14" Snare, Supersmooth Ludwig P-85 Throwoff works perfectly, 10 Classic Ludwig Bowtie Lugs, 2.3 mm Hoops that supply plenty of attack and still allow the shell to breathe, Round Knob Muffler!!  Classic BLACK wrap looks great on BOTH modern and vintage kits.  EXCELLENT Condition!  Typical light wear on the hoops/hardware, some light scractes/scuffs on the wrap but nothing too bad.

A pretty rare find!!

From their original bass drum pedal that revolutionized the industry, to the Ludwig & Ludwig, to the WFL years, the whole Ringo thing, the Bonham 3 ply shells, their fall from grace in the 80s, to their re-emergence in North Carolina--the Ludwig Company has had a rollercoaster ride spanning the last century. However one thing has ALWAYS been consistent. And that is the Ludwig Snare drum. It's like they've made a pact with the devil. Whether it's a WFL from the 40s, a COB from the 60s, a Black Beauty from the 70s, or their Classic Maple,  Ludwig snares sound like Ludwig snares sound like Ludwig snares, no matter what decade.

They got their game on with snares. And this DEEP 6.5" is no exception. Warm, deep, fat, crisp-it's a Ludwig. It's FAT. And the low end is terrific. A great sounding snare.

You can use this Classy DEEP 6.5" Ludwig on whatever your heart desires. Rock, definitely Classic Rock, jazz, blues, funk, gospel, R&B, Zeppelin tunes, it's candy for your ears. And that's a promise.

So do yourself a favor and grab this LAST OF THE CHICAGO ERA LUDWIG Deep 6.5" X 14" BLACK Wrap Classic Maple Snare Drum.
