I don't have a "Rare Snare" but that's all I look at on the internet and someday hope to own one. I look at Bradley Jarrah Block snares, custom snares, limited edition snares, collectors snares, unusual snares, signature snares, Anniversary snares, and very expensive snares.

Hopefully someday I'll own a real nice Ludwig snare only because it reminds me of my dad who also was a drummer and owned a Ludwig Kit.

If you do have a "Rare Snair" we'd love to see it!

I love the one pictured below.

I am at work now, but will get pics of my 1920's era Ludwig marching/military drum later on tonight and post them...that is the rarest drum I have

though, I am in the proccess of tryign to find the origin and type of my dads Luddy Supraphonic; he bought it in 1958; and it has all of the trappings of a Supra, except that they did not come out until 62. I have read that there was a "pre-Supra" that was out in the late 50's, and that they are sort of rare...still searching

cool!!! It was my grandfathers brothers in high school, or so I was told. He would have been in HS in the early 1920's, so that is where I am getting the age from...it might even be older. It still has the original gut snares and heads, which is pretty crazy...100 years old? Nuts...

1948-1952 WFL 6.5 6L been thru the Drum Doctors shop; all details (studio tweaks) too many to mention (for ex. allen screw attachment for lugs. It was sitting on ebay no one noticed and I took it. Have also an all original untouched same- 6L 6.5 WFL- makes a nice contrast

My less commonly found drums are made by major companies but are runs/models that were discontinued- not truly rare though.

Still, good drums that for whatever reasons (likely costs) are no longer made. Besides the Acro, that describes almost all my drums.

The only Guru segmented maple in existence. 14 x 6.5". My happy snare.

With a matching 20 x 14 BD which absolutely kills

While trying to figure out and find info on my 68 or 67 supra( I forgot now but have it written down somewhere) , I searched for a contact phone number from Ludwig . It may depend on who you get on the phone but I got a nice knowledgeable guy who was able to answer any and all questions I had at the time about 5 years ago I think it was . So try contacting Ludwig 👌🏻. They may be of assistance 👍🏼
