Ludwig LT454 Titanium "The Chief" 14" x 5" snare drum, special edition

'The Chief' refers to Bill Ludwig II, son of the Ludwig company founder, and the drum is a special limited edition made to honor the great man's considerable achievements.

The 5x14 shell, supplied by specialist drum-maker Ron Dunnett, is fitted with a specially minted gold keystone badge. It has 10 Imperial double-ended lugs and the familiar concave centre bead, so it looks just like a LM400, although fitted with a quality Dunnett strainer. The shell is an extremely thin 0.035" of titanium, weighing in at 800g, the thinnest and lightest metal shell around.

 

The chrome plated throw-off lever of the Dunnett strainer rather cleverly operates through a horizontal 180º plane, so that you can either flick it away from the shell, or flick it to your left or right as is most convenient. The butt is a solid plate that stands 1.5cm proud of the shellholding the snares away.
