SKU: 77909810 Categories: , ,


Vintage 1965 Ludwig Supraphonic 5×14 aluminum snare drum in very good condition. Serial number 136864. The drum is super clean. Zero rust or grime. There is mild pitting scattered around but not too severe. All hardware is original: tension rods, tension rod washers, throw off, butt plate, hoops, and white felt baseball bat muffler. The batter head is a brand new, never-been-played Remo Ambassador. Remo diplomat snare side head is in good shape. The snare wires appear to be newer Ludwig wires (one or two strands are a little bent). The internal muffler works as it should however, the baseball bat arm is bent inward (see picture). Didn’t want to risk it breaking off so I left it alone. The throw off works as it should and the drum tunes up with no issues. It’s ready to go. More pictures and info available.

Due to the nature of used and vintage drum gear, all listings are sold “as-is.” We try our best to take detailed pictures and write accurate descriptions. Our goal is to capture the overall condition of each item. Minor details may be missed, but we are happy to take additional pictures upon request. Also, we cannot guarantee finishes will be a close or perfect match to your drum(s). Most Reverb orders ship with Reverb Safe Shipping which is signature required over $100. AP Drum Co website orders ship insured for the full purchase amount (and no sales tax – just sayin’). If you would like to specify “no signature required” please let us know at the time of purchase so we can ship accordingly.
