Comments: My first custom made snare. I got the idea back in 1999 when Ludwig had their 90th. Anniversary. They presented a line of Anniversary drums that not really honored their history in my opinion. So I came up with this design that I thought they should have made! I was fascinated by tube lugs, single flanged hoops and claws. Lots of searching for parts succeeded and I got John Aldridge to engrave a Black Beauty shell for me. I love the way it turned out.
