... it is, and they are! I have a 1949/50 WFL/Ludwig 3X13 Buddy Rich Be-Bop, and it's the snare drum that starts my BR snare drum collection, covering from 1950 to 1982. That said, I'll check my stock as I have a lot of wires, and just may have a set for you ... but not positive. Goes without saying that it might be a tad difficult to find an OEM set of these ... but you never know! I'll attach a couple pics of my drum so others can see the wires.

>so others can see the wires.

And thank you!

That thing must be a real firecracker! Small and shallow, high and tight. Be-bop!

Butchie!

No good, sorry. I have a couple early WFL sets of wires in the stash, but not the 12/12 for this particular drum. Course they do exist for purchase from some aftermarket company's though, but you probably know that!

Purdie/John ... THANKS!, and glad you enjoyed!
