Ludwig 5x14 Jazz Festival in red sparkle. Nov. 2 1966 stamp not faded. Inspector signature in pencil. Serial number 419671. All parts original except heads and one of the snare strings. Original Ludwig snares. Condition: Very Good. 9 out of ten easily. A little bit of tarnish/corrosion on the hoops. Very, very light pitting. A bit of seam lift at the bottom of the seam. All very typical of a drum from this era. I cleaned everything with soap but did not remove the very little tarnish on the hoops, nor did I polish it. With a good cleaning and polishing it could be 9.5 out 10. The drum sounds great. It has a bit of history. This belonged to Tommy Winkler, owner of the now defunct Pro Drum Shop in Nashville, where I worked for a short while in the mid nineties. He told me it was his very first drum.
