    COB super-sensitive with red baseball bat muffler?

    I have COB pre-serial snares with both round and BB mufflers. I've seen more BB mufflers on the 6.5" than 5", but they still exist. As noted by others, this was a transition period and Ludwig was known to just use up parts in the bin so to speak. The lugs look correct. The weight is also a...

    1920's Black Beauty

    A word to the wise. The 6.5” Black Beauties are much more rare than the 5” (or 4”) so they have appreciated much more in value. Lately, they have fetched $1500-3000 Premium over the 5”, all things being equal. As such, a direct trade would not likely be considered. Bob
