Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig, Chicago, early 1920s Professional Model snare drum, 5 x 15, 10-lug

Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig, Chicago, early 1920s Professional Model snare drum, 5 x 15, 10-lug

Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig, Chicago, early 1920s Professional Model snare drum, 5 x 15, 10-lug This is a very rare Ludwig & Ludwig Professional Model snare drum. I’ve chosen to leave this vintage Ludwig snare in its current condition. It has been repainted at some point but all of the original parts are present. It still has the original Ludwig & Ludwig Chicago metal stamped oval badge, indicating that this drum was made in the early 1920’s and well before the sale of the Company in 1929, when the production was moved to Indiana. The 10 lugs are all still completely intact. I haven’t taken it all apart, but I’m led to believe this is a single ply drum. It is fitted with the original Professional Strainer and is marked with PAT PEND. The snare is made by John Grey. The hoops are nickel over brass. Someone has chosen to attach a tie cleat (in Red) to the shell. Other than the clip and the old paint job, it’s completely original and intact. It will cost you a lot more for a restored version of this Ludwig & Ludwig, Chicago, snare drum, if you can find one! If you are after a vintage early Ludwig snare drum, then this one should be part of your collection.
