1960s Pre Serial Ludwig Downbeat 'Oyster Pink Pearl' : 4 x 14
1960s Ludwig Pre Serial Down Beat Snare Drum
Size : 4 x 14
Finish : Oyster Pink Pearl
Early 1960s Ludwig (Pre Serial) downbeat snare drum in the original Oyster Pink Pearl finish. This drum is in absolute stunning condition. Easily considered a time capsule, everything on this drum is original down to the snare strands, tension rods and unplayed Ludwig 60s heads.
First introduced in 1959, Oyster Pink Pearl is thought to be the most rare finish of the 60s era. This wrap option was soon discontinued in 1962 while Sparkling Pink Pearl was introduced in the 1963 catalog. The wrap on this drum is without any noticeable fading and free of any cracks or discoloration. The entire drum is outfitted with nickel plated hardware which shines like new chrome! The drum features nickel over brass hoops and a nickel plated P-83 strainer in mint condition.
