SOLD! 1923-25 Ludwig DeLuxe Black Beauty 8 lug engraved snare

I'm not expecting to get $5000 for this drum. I am taking offers and will probably sell to the highest bidder next week. Click on contact to make an offer or call me at 330 338 6035. I am taking it to the Chicago Drum Show this weekend May 15 & 16 if you want a hands on audition. This drum is in good condition for an almost 100 year old drum. All parts are original except for heads, snare wires, and one cup washer on the inside. The is a calf head that came with the drum and a hard case that is included in the sale. It obviously has some dings, dents, scratches and some rough spots in the black nickel chrome finish. I cleaned it inside and out. Everything works; no stripped tubes, the throw off works fine. Shell and hoops are in round. I tuned it up and played it and - guess what? - it sounds like a million dollars. There is no finer brass snare drum made in my opinion.
