Cool 1976 5x14 Ludwig clear Vistalite

An Ebay find, this pristine specimen is to be added to the drumset at the congregation I've been with since 2014, First Filipino-American United Church of Christ in San Bruno, California. I had tested out my amber Vistalite snare of the same size in consecutive weeks to positive responses both from fellow praise band members and those singing up front, running a Remo zero-ring on top of the clear Vintage Emperor head (sometimes turning up the tone control to full muffling as well) very clean tone with a bit more focus than the 6.5x14 Yamaha steel snare that had been the mainstay there.

Will get to test it out with my kit later today with a coated Vintage Emperor head, providing a bit of a contrast to the amber Vistalite snare that's my primary workhorse of late. I also have a clear Remo Powerstroke 4 head on its way as I would like to get a similar, fat/controlled sound as that Emperor/zero ring combo, but without the need for the zero ring itself.
