This Ludwig 6.5 x 15 sparkling gold pearl wood snare drum is in very good condition. The sparkling gold pearl laminate looks great! The interior of the drum has a date stamp of “May 19 1960” in red ink. It has a Keystone Transitional badge in excellent condition. Please see pictures for details. The muffler works well with a good felt. Both hoops have light general wear and the top hoop is just slightly out of round. Most of the lugs look as though they could be re-plated, there is one lug that looks to be a replacement as it polished up beautifully in comparison to the others. There is very light pitting on the hardware. No case and no stand are included.
