This red sparkle model is in excellent condition with a blemish-free, tight, re-wrapped shell, nearly spotless hoops, and a '70s P85 strainer. The top bearing edges were beautifully cut to enhance the sensitivity and attack, while the bottom edges were left original to preserve that Motown backbeat.  

First appearing in the Ludwig 1960 catalogue, the Pioneer was initially marketed as a low price student drum, but has developed a cult following, especially among studio drummers. Its 6-lug design provides an open tone, and Pioneer's warm, fat, vintage crack has an unmistakably mid-century vibe.
