Aug 9 1967 Ludwig 402 14x6.5"

Serial number: 532417.

Date stamped: Aug 9 1967.

The legendary 402 snare. John Bonham later put the 70's 402's into the limelight which still gives them the legacy that they still rightfully deserve today. This drum however is the seldom seen 60's example which are really not often seen. 

As often seen on COA (chrome over aluminium) shells of the 60's and 70's, this drum isn't short of pitting, ageing, scuffs, scratches and minor dents. This drum has clearly been used and adored, but she plays exactly how you'd want. 

The original baseball bat damper was broken, and because the drum was a players example, I decided to swap it out for a much user friendly adjustable 1968 Ludwig round knob damper. The drum also came to me with a 70's P85 which I have kept on. Again, similarly to the damper situation, an original 60's strainer and damper cost the earth, so I tried to keep the costs down for such a players drum.

The drum has been stripped, cleaned, checked and polished and reassembled with brand new Remo Vintage Ambassador and Ambassador heads and Puresound Custom Pro Steel 24 strand wires. 

She sounds delightful!
