Ludwig / Pioneer Snare / 5 x 14 / (1967)
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 1967 snare is in excellent condition, featuring the Ludwig keystone badge serial #549377, P83 throw-off & butt plate, baseball muffler, date stamp Dec 5 1967. Original Ludwig "orchestral" head on top, original head and patented rubber-end snare wire on the bottom.
