Ludwig Drum Company is proud to announce the limited availability of the 1930 Standard Model Reissue, Nickel-Over-Brass Snare Drum. A collaboration between Ludwig and Italian goldsmith Adrian Kirchler, The Standard Reissue is the first snare in the modern era to use Ludwig's original 2-pc. Shell. The original Standard and Deluxe models used two thin, brass sheets that were hand-rolled and joined together at the bead. A very strong shell was then formed using the traditional double-crimped bearing edge on the top and bottom. This new Standard model is absolutely true to the original 2-pc shell design. The original Standard and Deluxe models are more commonly known today by their modern names: Chrome-Over-Brass and Black Beauty. After Conn purchased Ludwig and Ludwig in the early 30's, the single-piece shell construction used today was implemented, and the original 2-pc standard shell became a thing of the past. Using the same level of craftsmanship Adrian used on Ludwig's 100th Anniversary Gold Triumphal snares, each 5"x14", 2-pc Brass shell on the 1930 Standard Reissue is hand-made in the Italian Alps and Nickel-plated for a superior finish. Two panels are hand-engraved using the Ludwig Triumphal Flower pattern, and fitted in the USA with brass-plated die-cast hoops, tube lugs, the Millennium strainer, and classic Oval badge. Each also comes fitted in a custom, vintage-themed bag. There will only be a total of 60 of these drums made this year, so act quickly to own this very limited piece of drum history.
