My main workhorse and uncontested favorite rental snare is a 6.5 Black Beauty that I have always considered to be 1970s.This drum has been on countless hit songs and traveled the world to appease producers and players alike.In reality, the early days of drum manufacturing held no regard for dating or serializing a product for chronological relevance.A future significance in chronologically cataloging a product produced by Ludwig wasn't foreseen.The early 1970’s shells were designed as a 3-ply drum consisting of an outer and inner maple ply supported by an inner poplar ply. The characteristics of maple offered more volume, a brighter tone, and tuning versatility.There is a certain passion and joy that goes into documenting, or identifying a vintage drum, especially one manufactured by Ludwig.

Bigger size drums offered the volume and presence to accompany walls of blasting guitar cabinets.

It tells a story, not only in what it is, but where it's been; the roads traveled, its relevance to drum manufacturing, and its influence on music.

Dating Ludwig Drum products can be rather easy or quite tedious.

It seems to me that "most" of the data bases on the internet and even in books are most unreliable. Yours still has the pointed corner badge..anyone help verify approx.

The 1970’s are referred to as the era of the Blue/Olive badge.

Ludwig badges are simple characteristic indicating which era a Ludwig drum could be placed.
