Ludwig Vistalite snare in blue, 1978. This beautiful snare is in clean condition and is a great example of these classic drums. It has a nice, snappy crack with a clear fundamental note; it'd easily fit into a lot of genres. It's easy to tune and feels great to play. All the original hardware works perfectly and the blue shell looks exceptionally cool. Can't go wrong with this one.
