This vintage 1920’s 4×14 Ludwig Black Beauty features a scroll-engraved brass shell, brass rims and rim clips and 8 tube lugs. Includes an original vintage wooden suitcase with a leather handle. Lots of charisma and historic appeal!
Here are details on its condition: This drum had a factory-original internal heater that was removed, leaving the mounting holes open. There is a 7/8″ hairline crack across the center bead of the shell that continues slightly below the bead. Two tension rods are unoriginal (we may have original replacements – please inquire). There are five hairline cracks in the interior horizontal “lips” of the shell. Please call for additional photos.
This drum has exceptional vintage tone typical of Ludwig’s heavyweight 2 pc brass shell tube lug snare drums from the 1920’s. Includes vintage snare wires.
For sale on consignment by its owner for $1100 OR BEST OFFER. Additional photos are available.
