About This Listing

Ludwig Classic 6 Ply Maple 24” x 14” Marching Bass Drum Date Stamp "892" Mach Lugs 80s Red Sparkle


This is a vintage Ludwig 14" x 24" 6 Ply Maple Marching Bass Drum in Red Sparkle with Gold Monroe, N.C.  Keystone Badge and 12 Long Mach-Style Lugs.  The Gold Keystone 'Monroe North Carolina Made In USA' Badge, serial number & hardware would place the assembly of this drum and release from the factory sometime in the 1980's/early 90's. The unfaded black date stamp "892" could indicate birth year as 89 or 92?   This drum features all factory Ludwig parts (except 3 of the claws are non-ludwig) in a beautiful original Red Sparkle wrap (some scratches throughout). This drum is in Good player's condition overall and sounds amazing. Top of the line heavy-duty construction, built to last.  Ready to play.  Connect your kick pedal and/or convert into your massive Ludwig 24" kick for your kit.

This vintage 14 x 24" Ludwig Classic Maple drum looks great and sounds HUGE!!! Connect your kick pedal and make this your kit bass drum today!  Highly sought after Ludwig shell size and factory Ludwig parts (except 3 claws are not Ludwig) in good condition.

• 6 ply Classic Maple Shell in good condition. There appears to be separation of the 1st interior ply near one of the harness bolts on the interior (see pictures
). This cosmetic issue does not appear to affect the functionality of this beautiful drum. Bearing edges appear in very good condition. Some interior scratches. Black Date Stamp '892' very clear  

• Gold Monroe N.C. Keystone Badge Serial #3271554

• 12 Long Mach  Lugs show minimal rust, some scratches & pitting and are all in good working condition.  

• The original red sparkle wrap is beautiful, tight to the shell with some minimal damage such as scratches, nicks & dings(please see pictures). Signs of normal/heavy use such as scratches, dents &  blemishes are typical of a used player's condition marching bass drum from this era and mostly only noticeable if standing a few feet from the drum. 

• This drum features Ludwig marching bass drum rods and claws (except 3 of the claws are non-Ludwig) in good working condition with minimal rust and pitting/flaking. The claws on this drum are the flat flanged Marching Bass Drum 1980s style.  Tension rods appear to be original and show some slight bending and rust typical of a used marching drum, still functional. 

• The late 1980's marching bass drum hoops on this drum are in good working condition feature a flat edge on both sides and show signs of normal use as a marching drum with dents, scratches and some chipping where the claws engage the hoop. No major cracks or problems that affect the drums sound or functionality. 

• Includes original Brackets for Marching Harness that are slightly bent but appear functional 

• No Extra Holes, No Modifications

• Drum Heads: Used Evans MX3 Marching Bass Drum Heads some dents and scratches. Still in solid working condition. No holes
