Default Ludwig (Rocker?) Made In The USA?

Hi, everybody! I've biught a 14x5, steel, 10-lug Ludwig snare drum and just wanted to clarify a few things... The badge (816440) is Black and White, rounded corners, there's a box around serial number and it doesn't say USA. I checked some sites, but the information is contradictory. Could you, please, help me out? Approx. year, country (USA or Taiwan), is it LM300? Thank you!!!

Those are a captive import. NOT made in USA.

Yes, it's the MIT (Taiwan) LM300 snare drum. I don't recall exactly when they came out. Steel shell with center bead and 10 Acrolite lugs. A good working strainer. They could have picked a better knob for the muffler, as it just doesn't go with the "Ludwig" theme! I believe the hoops are 2.0mm. It's your typical MIT steel shell, but made to look like a Supra or Acrolite. I've heard YouTube videos and they can sound quite good. Hope you got it for a good price! Tune it up and enjoy!

Thanks for making it clear! It sounds OK and it was for a reasonable price. Ant the knob... But, overall, it's very well-made. Thanks again for your help!

At the end of the day, what matters is that you are happy with it. Enjoy!
