We’ve for sale a brand new within the box 2009 Ludwig 100th Anniversary 14″x61/2″ snare drum. Often identified as %u201CThe Working Drummer%u2019s Black Beauty%u201D, the face area of its black nickel plated brass shell is laser- engraved to pinpoint accuracy, revealing the wonder underneath the tone. Die-cast hoops and tube lugs are standard. This drum would be a twelve months only special drum commemorating 1909-2009 years of Ludwig making great drums. The drum new within the box and was purchased on my own at the Pa Vintage Drum Show from Jim Catalano at the Ludwig Booth during 2009. Jim is an extremely special Ludwig employee who traveled the entire world with Bill Ludwig II for many years.
