I'm not quite an expert on the subject, but this style stand was very common for Ludwig drum in the 60s and 70s. Functionally they are obviously inferior to the hardware manufactured today, and they are pretty common, so no, I doubt they are very collectible at all. But they definitely aren't strange either. If you are reconstructing an old kit, and want it to be true to the time, I'd grab it for those prices you mentioned, sounds like a deal to me...

Yep, Ludwig's basic 1400 series. I still use that stand for every gig except touring, and never had a problem. Also using 1400 cymbal stands. Except for extremely hard hitters, it's the best lightweight and compact stand solution around.

I really dislike that style of stand because the bottom head is awfully close to the arms holding the drum, and there is enough flex in those arms that the drum bottoming out into the stand is a very real possibility if you play hard.

I have that stand as well but I think $35 is too high, more like 15 or 10 even.
Its super light which is nice and holds my 5 x 14 Supra.
I found it will not support the heavier 6.5 x14 snares. Only a little wing screw is holding all the weight, and mine slides down a lot with larger snares.

He's actually asking a fair price there.Those at one time were heavy duty,and unless your a basher or use a cast brass 3mm 14x8 snare,will hold up just fine.I have one from the 60's.and it still works fine..Model 1363.

Haven't had that happen, and I lay into the snare pretty hard on some of my local gigs and sessions.

Haven't had a problem with 6.5" (which I use almost exclusively) or any slippage. But, I'm not using extremely heavy snares, just standard brass with triple-flange hoops. There is undoubtedly a weight limit though, in which case a med or heavyweight stand would be better.

I do not care for those types of stands. There is a reason no one makes them anymore. To each his/her own. Peace and goodwill.

I have a 50's WFL stand that's the exact same thing. Super light, easy to set up and carry. It lost it's rubber feet, and it does slip down, but I just tightened it down hard once to hold a 5" snare and I've had no problems since. Fun piece of history, fun vibe as well.
