drum is somewhat of a mystery. I've been unable
to find it in any Ludwig Catalog. In 1947, the Ludwig
Drum Company introduced the Buddy Rich Super Classic
Snare Drum. It was only offered in one size--5 1/2
also offered a 6 1/2 x 14 model, but that was called
the New Classic or the Ray McKinley model. That
drum had 16 classic lugs.
you can see, the pictured drum has 8 Bow Tie lugs.
As I mentioned earlier, this drum really has no
photographic trail in any WFL catalog. I've called
the drum the WFL SUPER CLASSIC but what Ludwig called
it is anyone's guess.
