Default Ludwig Vintage Blue Sparkle 14" Floor Tom

Signed by William F Ludwig II. Beautiful Blue Sparkle 14 Ludwig floor tom. Maple 3-ply shell. Clear interior finish. The blue sparkle finish has no fade. No pitting or rust. The drum can use a dusting. There are no modifications to the drum. There are no signs of wear. It is an all Original drum of Collectors quality.

The badge is not original to the drum. I believe the drum is late 60s to early 70s. I bought the drum at a vintage drum show in 1993 where Mr Ludwig was the guest speaker. He signed the drum for me. The was no badge on the drum at that time. I installed the replacement badge. The drum has been sitting un-played in my climate controlled family room since I have owned it.

With red felt baseball bat muffler!

Maple 3-ply w/ re-rings shell should not match w/ these kind of early 60's muffler, but it's an upgrade for sure.
