Ludwig / Pioneer Snare / 5 x 14 (1961)
First appearing in the Ludwig 1960 catalogue, the Pioneer has for years maintained a cult following, especially among studio drummers. Its 6-lug design provides an open tone, and Pioneer's warm, fat, vintage crack has an unmistakably mid-century vibe.
This 57 year old white marine pearl snare is in excellent condition, one of the most pristine we've ever seen. It has a pre-serial Keystone badge, the original P83 throw-off, baseball bat muffler, nickel hoops, and gorgeous bearing edges. Brand new Ludwig head on top, and new Remo snare side head. Here's a unique chance to own a 57 year old snare drum!
