Snare Wire Size Question

11 July 2018 - 11:04 AM

I’m looking to use 42 strand snare wires on a vintage drum. I know most vintage drums have snare beds which are too small to accommodate 42 wires. Can anybody direct me toward vintage snare drums that can accommodate 42 wires? Or will I need to go with a vintage sounding, modern drum?

Ludwig Classic Maple Snare - Almost New! - 6.5X14 Natural Gloss

30 June 2018 - 06:20 PM

Here is a 2017 Ludwig Classic Maple snare (6.5X14) that I purchased new right before Christmas. It has been used only twice and for a very short time. I was going to use it with a project that wound up falling through. The drum is in original condition in every way. Both heads are original and have not been used. 


I looked this drum over and I can't see a flaw on it, although I am hesitant to say it is perfect, just in case. In any event, it is certainly in mint condition. 


It has the classic p85 throw and the original wires. 


Please let me know if you have any questions. 


$300 (shipping in the continental U.S. is on me.)

Looking for a 60s era Ludwig Jazz Festival snare in good condition.

14" Vintage Wood Hoops (Snare) Ludwig? Leedy?

14 June 2018 - 07:41 PM

Here is a pair of 14" vintage wood hoops, probably from a Ludwig or a Leedy snare drum. (I am honestly not sure of the manufacturer.) The hoops are in pretty good shape, especially considering they are at least 50-60 years old.
