Artisan-Select aged exotic veneers handcrafted to perfection. This latest Aged Exotic snare drum features undeniably rich examples of Carpathian Elm veneer alternated with plies of North American Maple. It is a 10-ply shell with 5-ply re-rings finished in our proprietary Poly-Glass Lacquer for maximum durability. To top it off, both these are completed with Nickel Die- Cast hoops, tube lugs, P88 Throw-off, and P35. This material was sourced from a private stock stored for some 30+years. There will be only 40 total snare drums available in North America only. Includes Ludwig floral script logo snare bag.
