Ludwig LB552K Hammered Bronze 14" x 6,5" snare drum, early 1990's
Monroe badge # 3197077.
This snare is one of the early Monroe production: you can see the hammering (different from the modern version), the presence of the internal tone control, the colour of shell inside is more red (more copper in the alloy).
10 x Imperial lugs, internal damper with round felt, original Ludwig snare wire
A "B" is engraved on the external shell just above the tone control's knob
Excellent condition, just few sign of use and bronze corrosion, no modification.
Beautiful sound for this snare, very warm, deep, precise.
