Pre-serial Number Keystone Badge Early 1960 – 1963


This Ludwig 5 x 14 blue and silver duco wood snare drum is in very good condition. The blue and silver duco finish has light general wear with some very minor paint chipping considered standard wear for a drum of this age. The interior of the drum has a date stamp of “Jan” in black ink on the whitewash interior.  The date stamp is so faint we cannot make out any more of it. It has a Keystone early 1960-1963 no serial number badge that is in very good condition. The muffler functions well and has a good used felt. Both nickel hoops have light general wear with some light dings to the edge of both hoops.  The nickel plated bowtie lugs are in good condition. No case and no stand are included.

Additional Information:
Badge Type: Pre-serial Number Keystone Badge Early 1960 – 1963.
Badge Condition: Very good.
Material/Finish: Painted duco. There is some light chipping around some of the hardware and throughout the shell to the paint that is very minor.
Wood Shell Condition: Light general wear. The top mounting screw for the snare throw has been pushed into the shell slightly so it has a light crack at that point at the inside.  There is a very faint date stamp inside, all we can read is “Jan” in black ink on the whitewash interior.
Snare Throw: Works well. This looks to be a transitional snare throw from the Pioneer throw to the P83 throw.
Snare Wires: Original.
Muffler: Functions well with good felt.
