She's a beauty baz. Is the badge slightly off center, looks so in the first photo? If so, gives the drum some extra mojo. I have a mid 60's Jazz Fest in Sky Blue Pearl with the badge noticeably off center. Ludwig employee having an "off" day :/.

I wasn't aware that Ludwig fitted drums with the round muffler pre the bassball. Thought eh baseball muffler is effective, the round one offers a bit more precise functionality.
