LUDWIG NICKEL OVER BRASS STANDARD REISSUE 2010 (LB454AKS)
14 x 5, 10 tube lugs, P-86 Millennium Strainer
Very hard to find Adrian Kirchler 1930 Ludwig standard re-issue. This was originally outfitted with chrome triple flange hoops but has been changed to somewhat more authentic modern single flange hoops and clips. This drum is new old stock never sold but displayed, Inside of the shell has developed a patina. These drums were introduced in 2010 I am not aware of the numbers that were produced.
As the first snare from the modern era to utilize our original 2-pc. shell design, the 1930 "Standard" Model Reissue, Nickel-Over-Brass Snare Drum is a true work of art. This limited, 60-pc. collaboration between Ludwig and Italian goldsmith Adrian Kirchler, The "Standard" incorporates two thin brass sheets that are joined together at the bead and formed into a strong shell.
Using the same level of craftsmanship Adrian used on Ludwig's 100th Anniversary Gold Triumphal snares, each 2-pc. Brass shell on the "Standard" Reissue is hand-rolled in the Italian Alps using the traditional double-crimped bearing edge on the top and bottom. Following Nickel-plating for a superior finish, two panels are hand-engraved using the Ludwig Triumphal "Flower" pattern, and fitted in the USA with chrome flanged hoops and tube lugs.
