Ludwig 5x14" Vistalite NOS Snare Drum - 1970s Green
This is a VERY rare item. As all of you Vistalite fans know, green Vistalite snares are very hard to find. All of the many Bonham fans are often searching for years for a green Vistalite snare to complete their kits, with excellent "no issues" examples costing easily twice as much as this drum. This is an all original Ludwig 5x14" Green Vistalite snare drum. This is a drum that sat as New Old Stock in a music store since it was ordered new. I saw this drum about 20 years ago when I first visited this shop, and it had been there since ordered new. That store has since closed and we were finally able to acquire a number of sets and snares, and this is one of them. The drum has a crack behind the strainer. We show pics of the crack, but because it runs right behind the strainer it is almost invisible when you look at the drum from the outside. Check out the pic of the snare with the strainer facing you and you will see how "invisible" the crack is at a glance. Despite this one issue, the drum functions perfectly and sounds great. This is a rare color, so grab it now if you need it to match your kit! And, the price is right!
