Video: Funky Vintage Ludwig Vistalite Snare Drum

This amber ("John Bonham orange") early '70s Ludwig Vistalite snare is exactly the type of players' vintage we love at Reverb. Enough wear to scare off the collectors but still perfectly playable.

Measuring 14" x 6.5" with a beautifully worn Remo pinstripe head, P85 strainer and large knob tone control, this snare gives a fat, dry hit.
