This Ludwig 10 x 26 sparkling silver pearl wood bass drum is in great condition. The laminate finish over the wood does look a bit more yellow than silver with its uniform aging across the laminate and the sparkle finish is beautiful. It has a Keystone badge that is in excellent condition and there is a date stamp reading “May 20 1965” on the inside of the drum making this a vintage 1965 bass drum. Both the mounting hardware and a couple of the lugs do have some etchings on them, please see pictures. Both of the hoops have light general wear to the paint and both laminate strips are in great condition! No case is included.
