A snare that needs no introduction, this Super Sensitive Ludwig 400 is EXACTLY what you are looking for!

The Ludwig 400 Super Sensitive, one of the most recorded snare drums in history, and we can see why. The oversized snare mechanism allows the snare wires to pass beyond the edge of the drum, allowing there to be no snare bed, meaning HEAPS of sensitivity (hence Super Sensitive). This snare sports the keystone badge with serial number 581873, dating it to 1968.

This drum has been fully serviced and fitted with new Remo Ambassador batter and reso heads, and SPECIALLY CUSTOMISED Canopus Vintage Snare Drum Wires specifically designed for Super Sensitive Snare Drums. It is also fitted with a Canopus CIM20 baseball style dampener that works like a dream, without the need for drilling.

The drum has some pitting on the panels and around the beading, however overall this snare is in superb players condition, and sounds phenomenal.
