Up for sale is this late 1950’s Ludwig Transition Badge 3 X 13 Jazz Combo snare drum.
This drum has had a FUN life, we’ll get to that in a minute, meanwhile here’s the details:   
The drum has the original Turquoise & Gold duco finish. The finish does have some chips, dings, scratches, and some mild checking, please see the photos.

This drum has 100% original parts except for the heads and snare wires, both triple flange hoops are the original Chrome over brass Ludwig hoops, the original P-84 snare strainer works fine, and the WFL butt plate is original to the drum. The Ludwig family was using up those WFL parts after buying the Ludwig name & company back. All 6 lug casings are original and not broken. They have the WFL style, flat head, original screws attaching them to the shell. All 12 tension rods are original and the drum has an interior date stamp of March 13th 1959. 

One of our employees was a drum tech on the road with Sheryl Crow for 8 years.  Sheryl’s great drummer, Fred Eltringham, used this drum on tour as his side snare for 4 years. The snare was also used on multiple TV appearances, such as, Conan O’Brien, Late Night with Seth Myers, The Today Show, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and lastly The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. A Humes and Berg Enduro Case with foam is included. The heads haven’t been changed since it came off the road 2 years ago. 

In the current owners words:

"It’s time to pass this one on to the next owner, and hopefully it will be played more, instead of living in a case. This is a great snare drum in great shape for being almost 65 years old, and it has a neat history on the road"
