    Here is my 1965 (Date stamped Mar 12 1965) Pioneer Snare drum in Champagne Sparkle....I must say the sparkle colours that Ludwig produced were stunning....I also have a pre-serial number in Silver Sparkle and that is also in amazing condition....Also all hardware is Nickel Plated DSCN0013.JPG DSCN0013.JPG DSCN9951.JPG DSCN9955.JPG
