SKU: 69538927 Categories: , ,


Vintage 1970s Ludwig 5×14″ white Vistalite acrylic snare drum in good condition. No cracks! All original hardware. All tension rods match and have the correct washers. P-85 throw off works well. Original wires have all the strands but several are bent when not under tension (see picture). Internal muffler works as it should. Overall the drum is very clean. No dust or grime. No rust anywhere but there is pitting scattered around. A few lugs have it worse than others. The batter hoop has a spot on the lip that got bent down. The hoop is still level and round. The heads are old but playable. It’s a nice player’s drum. More 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.
