1980s Ludwig Coliseum Snare drum with Maple laminate shell
1980s Ludwig Coliseum Maple laminate shell snare drum 14” x 8”. Professional 12-lug model with a 6-ply wood shell and die-cast batter hoops in very good condition. This is a Blue & Olive badge drum from the early 1980’s with serial number: 2148747 It has a P85 strainer, P32 Snare Butt, an internal muffler and a 20-strand thin wire strainer. One of the last Chicago drums. This unusual snare is in very good shape. I’ve replaced the top pad with a new Remo Ambassador (coated). The underside is fitted with a used clear Weather King Diplomat snare pad. The chrome is in excellent shape with just a little pitting here and there. I have taken plenty of images which will highlight the imperfections. Having said this, if you look at the drum from a couple of feet away, you can just see it. The shell is in excellent condition with a lovely mellow bronze colour to it now. It has a couple of very small scratches. Again, you hardly notice them. A lovely snare that would grace any collection and is still a great instrument to use.
