Default Thoughts on these Ludwig snare drums

Check out these basement finds. They appear to be Ludwigs.

Are they worth anything? They appear to be in good condition.

Are you selling them? Asking for a friend.

The top one is a Black Beauty, deep shell size, with tube lugs and a P-86 strainer. That is a very sought-after, top-shelf drum. It looks to be in incredible condition. These go for upwards of $500 for starters but often command higher prices.

The other is an Acrolite with the painted matte finish and a new-style P-85AC strainer. Not as valuable, but a drum with a solid reputation as a player's drum as it has the same aluminum seamless beaded shell as the famous Supraphonic.

Depending on what you paid for these, you might have pulled off the deal of the century.

I'm curious to hear what you meant by "basement finds." Are these snares you recently purchased from someone else for a great price or are they something you bought awhile back and forgot that you had stashed them away in your basement until now? Either way, they're both quality snares, with the Black Beauty being a more upscale and expensive model than the acrolite.

They aren't worth anything. I will dispose of them for you, at no cost to you. I will even pay shipping. I'm PMing my address :)

Used Acro can be found cheap.
It's basically a non plated Supra with less lugs.

As for the BB $400 to $900 is fine.

Here's a BB on reverb that sold for $400.

You can take your tongue out of your cheek now, Mike. It was fun being spoofed like that, though. ;)

Ya - they're junk. The BB looks like it's been spray painted and it orange peeled.
I'll take that one, and you can have the Acro.


I kid, I kid - I like 13" snares, but I'd still love to have one of those BB's, even if it is a 14.

Hahahahaha! You caught me.

I did find them in the basement... my basement. I always love the valuation posts and amazing finds here and on Facebook. I have terrible luck finding anything amazing, so I made my own luck.

I found my Sweetwater card and 48-month, zero-interest financing. I waited three months for the BB.
