Ludwig 5"x14" Pioneer Snare Drum, 1967, Red Sparkle - USED
This snare drum is made up of a 3 ply mahogany-poplar-mahogany shell with maple reinforcement rings. It features six self-aligning lugs, triple flange hoops, P83 throw and the classic ‘baseball bat’ tone control/muffler. The interior is finished with Ludwig’s exclusive (white) ‘Reza Cote’ with the claim that “this new Acousti-perfect shell design provides superior tone and response found in more expensive models”.
This snare produces a nice warm tone; that typical vintage Ludwig vibe but with a brighter response than 8 lug models such as the ‘Jazz Festival’. Due to less tuning rods, the snare gives a much more open sound with a little less control over the tuning. It can offer great response and brightness when tuned high; tuned down low, with the snares buzzing a bit and your favourite damping, and you're hitting that lovely fat, but crisp, vintage thud.
