    This was a Ludwig snare I had built as a tribute to my mom, which she loved purple/violet and maple.

    It is a 6.5x14 classic maple in purple shadow, cast hoops, flat imperial lugs, p86 throw and p33 butt, with Grover SX silver/bronze wires, Remo renaissance emperor batter and Ludwig clear c1114 reso.

    Enjoy!
    Paul

    Hey Paul! An excellent tribute to your mom. My mom also loved Purple, which is one reason I obtained this 1970 Slingerland kit, wrapped in original Sparkling Purple Pearl!

    Nice.
    The flat Imperials are pure class.

    Thanks! About your drum, forgot to mention that Ludwig did right by bringing back the flat Imperial lug. They look great!
