This Ludwig Buddy Rich era 10 x 14 sparkling red pearl wood marching snare drum is in very good condition. The sparkling red pearl laminate finish looks beautiful! It has a Keystone transitional badge and the inside of the wood shell is stamped “Jun 3 1960” in red ink making this a vintage 1960 drum. Someone took chalk and added the number 14 on the inside of the wood shell. Both hoops have light general wear and there are some light typical stick marks to the top hoop from player wear. There is part of a mount for a leg brace on the drum, please see pictures. No stand and no case are included. This drum has a big deep Kick snare sound!
