Default $300 Black Beauty?

"Like new condition." What am I missing? Other than the head not being new. Am I being faked out?

Keystone badge. Seamless shell, Imperial lugs. P-85 strainer, P-32 butt plate.

Looks genuine from where I'm sitting.

Someone was selling an Anton Fig snare for $200 the other day. I tried to jump on it but it sold quickly.

That's what I bought mine for. $300 is more than I like to spend on a snare, but it was worth every penny. Sorry you missed out. :(

That's a P33 butt plate, which I don't know why they started using on newer Ludwig snares.

Right you are. Too many friggen' numbers to keep up with. The updated butt plates don't bother me........although why they didn't size them to fit the old P-32 holes is god's own private mystery. Ludwig are a true modern day corporate basket case. Lucky they sound so damned good.



Just goes to show, be quick or be dead, Rhythm Boy.

Unless it was ordered from the factory with the P-33,the shell will be altered,since the P-32/P-33 mounting holes,are not the same.Maybe thats why it was 300 bucks,when that drum used ,usually sells for around 400...except in the Pacific northwest.:):)

The P-83,P-85 and P-86 strainers however....will use the same mounting holes.

I was going to warn you to never trust people with tattoos, but it sounds like you learned that lesson the hard way.

Indeed. Not the first time. Not even the first time this year. I'm thinking of changing my name to "Slow Trigger."

Its happened to alot of us..Ludwig Classic 6.5 Maple for $100 at GC used site..just listed but gone when I called... I did score a 100 year centennial badge 6.5 Supra for $125 and the guy said it was just listed..played it for over a year and sold it for $250..missed a K ride for $85 the guy on the phone at GC said he prices all cymbals the same x amount per inch..I'm sure he didn't last long as drum manager..
