Default Ludwig Marcher Given New Life!

I've had this old marcher for a while now. It had been painted white with red hoops by the local hometown band of the 50s and 60s. I stripped it down and stained the shell. I also painted the hoops a vintage red color since I could not completely eliminate all the red from the grain without extensive treatment. It sounds great and feels great to play!
