This Ludwig 6.5 x 15 sparkling gold pearl wood snare drum is in great condition! The sparkling gold pearl laminate looks fantastic. The interior of the drum has a white-wash finish and a date stamp in red ink that reads “Feb 9 1963”. This is our best estimate of the date stamp as it is quite faded. It has a Keystone badge in very good condition. The snare throw works well, though please note that the snare throw does have some rust. The snare wires are not original. The muffler functions well and the lugs have the start of some very light pitting. The lug to the right of the snare butt has some numbers etched into it. The hoops both have light general wear. The batter head is new and the snare side head is in good used condition. Please see pictures for details. There is no case and no stand included.
