1800s German Snare Owned By the Ludwig Family

April 6, 2013

This one has a really fascinating story, which you can read in the listing. Interestingly, in Harry Cangany’s wonderful book The Great American Drums, a story is mentioned in passing that William F. Ludwig Sr. came upon a 6.5×13 brass snare from Germany that inspired him to manufacture metal snares. The details of the two stories differ, but I wonder if this could be that drum? If so, this could be an even more incredible item than the seller realizes, the progenitor of the heralded Black Beauty and Supraphonic snares!
