*UPDATE:
A keen observer emailed me to cite The Ludwig Book by Rob Cook that points this rare snare to 1983-4

It is a Chicago drum with the large Keystone badge (Badge says “Chicago” on it, which means it was made in the roughly one year between ’83-’84 that Ludwig switched from the blue/olive badge to the large keystone.

my friend who emailed me said:

I know this for two reasons:

1) the badge says ‘Chicago’ on it. In 1984 production moved to NC after which all badges were ‘Monroe’ badges, not 'Chicago.' There is only about 1 year of production of large keystone badges labeled “Chicago.”

2) the top of the keystone badge is tucked up under the batter head’s hoop. This is because the shell was created with the previous blue/olive badge in mind (the hole is at the top of that badge).
The large keystone badge has the hole much lower, so when fit to a drum machined for a B/O badge it sits high on the shell. This was corrected once production depleted the remaining earlier shells."

So this is also listed on Reverb and soon, Ebay. Here's your chance to get it minus shipping or forward taxes.

The classic recording snare, certainly to my ears comparable to a Black Beauty
and some other higher end snare drums, except this is an even flat recording sound.

This snare is still in great condition with minimal wear. Been used in my studio (only)

The drum has very minor pitting, and/or rust in one or two spots, and works perfectly and without any flaws in it’s performance. It also boasts new Evans heads, and die cast hoops which provides additional strength, and consistency of tuning & tone.
