1950's WFL Ludwig 'Porto-Pak' 13x5.5" WMP (6 lug)

3-ply mahogany shell, chrome hardware with 6 lugs.

These WFL shells are some of the finest built shells around. 

Originally the drum was as catalogued, a 'Classic Porto-Pak' with a Superclassic strainer. The only problem with the Superclassic strainers is your drum will require discontinued snare wires. With this in mind I have fitted a brand new Inde strainer which fits the original holes and works so smoothly. Now you are able to choose any 13" standard wires and enjoy this snare! 

The drum came to me without the original hoops so I have fitted brand new 2.3mm hoops. 6 of the tension rods don't match the others, but work as they should. 

Catalog scan from 1953. 

Freshly stripped, cleaned and polished in my workshop. Now fitted with brand new Remo Vintage Ambassador and Ambassador snare side heads with Puresound Custom Pro steel 20 strand wires.
