RARE CUT BADGE CHROME OVER BRASS LUDWIG "ARTIST" MODEL 1971 SUPRAPHONIC LM406 SNARE DRUM: This Supra wears has the very rare CUT BADGE and the brass Supra shell. THIS WAS THE VERY FIRST VERSION OF THE BLUE AND OLIVE BADGE. The badges had to be cut in order to fit next to the shell's bead as the shells were already drilled for the smaller keystone badges.
Note the "B" stamp behind the top of the tone muffler (see picture). Batter head is new old stock (NOS) vintage Ludwig silver dot High Torque and the s nare side head is a BRAND NEW Ludwig WeatherMaster. Hardware is original 12-hole P85 strainer, original buttplate, original large knob tone muffler , and original Ludwig script style snare wires. We have a vast network of vintage drum knowledge and we've yet to find someone who has seen this or what could have caused it. The sought-after brass sound, so much more powerful than a Ludalloy model, is just amazing.These don't surface for sale very often, this is a great chance for the serious Ludwig collector to own a piece of the company's lauded history. Thanks so much for looking! As always, the drum package you will receive is exactly as pictured. WE HAVE NO TOLERANCE FOR SCAMMERS.
