Description

Vintage Ludwig Pioneer snare drum. White marine pearl finish, 5.5 x 14", six nickel lugs. Late 1950s brass WFL keystone badge. Unfinished interior is stamped NOV 15, but the ink has darkened with age, making it difficult to see the year (if we had to guess, it might be 1958). Triple flange nickel rims. Round knob-controlled muffler.

Above average overall condition, with no wear on some elements and light wear elsewhere. The white marine pearl finish is in very good condition with mellow fade (see photos). Finish has worn off the butt plate. Replacement heads. Modern 20-strand snare wires and replacement t-tods.

In the past, a three-point strainer was installed on the drum. Since then the three-point has been replaced with a period WFL "Synchro-Mesh" throwoff, but two small holes remain, as you can see in the photos.

An excellent WFL snare with a classic finish.

A signature will be required upon insured delivery via USPS Priority mail. Orders heading "out west" will be sent via USPS Parcel Select Ground to reduce your shipping costs. Please consult the photos here and more at www.krustytubs.com for more detail. Prices are firm. For additional photos or international inquiries, please use the Contact button.

Returns & exchanges

Refunds and exchanges will be made for unsatisfied customers, but must be shipped back at buyer's expense (with original packaging), as long as the item is returned in original condition.

Shipping policies

Unless you indicate otherwise, orders will be shipped to the address you have on file with Etsy/Paypal. Please check it prior to submitting an order! Anything returned to us will result in new shipping charges, which will be the responsibility of the buyer.



Small items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, which includes tracking and insurance. Larger items will be shipped via USPS or UPS. Due to rising rates, postage quoted is for shipping from the east coast of the USA to the west. If you live closer to New England, the actual cost will likely be less, in which case we promptly refund any overages above $3.

If you have a question about how much shipping will cost for a particularly large item, contact us with your zip code and we will reply with an approximate shipping cost asap (if that cost is acceptable to you, contact us and we will put the item on reserve for you for 48 hours, allowing you to complete the purchase).

For international inquiries, please contact us.

For international orders, customs fees and VAT charges are the responsibility of the buyer. These are fees your government imposes on its residents for items coming into your country. By law, we cannot pay them; they are your responsibility. Krusty Tubs cannot be responsible for said charges. By your country's laws, they are your responsibility.

International items cannot be marked as a "gift" in order to avoid VAT taxes or customs fees. It is a US law punishable by up to $10,000 or imprisonment up to 5 years.

All of our items will be shipped from a pet-friendly home.
