    While the last 402 I posted recognized the 50th anniversary of the Supraphonic, this drum was made in 1984 with a badge to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Ludwig as a company. The specs are the same--a seamless aluminum smooth shell with Imperial Lugs and P-85 throw-off. This drum also has the addition of a P40662 internal tone control.
    Odd position for the "keystone" airvent on this one.

    From what I understand, the position of the air hole was a relic from the blue/olive badge era.

    This was released as the January 2012 Snare Club drum. There were several similar drums released from 2010-2012 with different Artisan II coverings.

    This drum is a 2-Ply Maple, 4-Ply Poplar (7.5mm total) shell. It has CL-65 lugs, SR-017 throw-off, and RIM1408 hoops.

    Thanks. I'm not a Ludwig guy, so I appreciate the info.

    Pearl IP1465 14x6.5 Ian Paice Signature Snare Drum

    This snare drum was released in 2002 and is currently one of only 4 signature snare drums still in the line. It has a steel shell with Superhoops, an SR017 throw-off, and TB65 tube lugs. The interesting things on this drum are the TL20 lock nuts as well as the internal muffler. I don't know of any other modern era Pearl drum set snares that come with either of these components.

    Great collection and pictures. The drums are in amazing condition - I can't see a single fingerprint on your snares (a trait I can relate to).

    The Reference Pure series was released in 2011 along with the Black Cherry finish. I got this drum used in 2012, but I believe it had to have been among the first of it's kind due to the Fat Tone hoop stickers. By around the middle of 2011, Fat Tone hoops had the current engraving.

    The specs in addition to the Fat Tone hoops are STL55L Tube Lugs, SR1000 Glide Lock throw off. The shell has 2 inner plies of birch and 4 outer plies of maple for a total of 5.4mm.

    Great snare. Interesting to note the Fat Tone stickers on the hoops.

    This was the December 2016 Snare Club drum. It has a steel shell with black powder coat finish and TLS55 lugs. It has an SR900 Duo-Motion throw-off that came on the metal Vision series snare drums. The throw-off can be changed to be either a vertical or horizontal pull. I have no idea why Pearl went to the trouble of designing that throw-off and basically only used it on the Vision series.

    This drum was released in 2018 and is categorized as a Collaboration Snare Drum with Casey Cooper. It has CL55 lugs and an SR700 strainer. The shell is an interesting mix of 2 inner plies of maple (1.8mm) in the evenply configuration and 4 plies of poplar (5mm) in standard thickness, which means a total of 6 plies at 6.8mm. I don't know of any other Pearl drums that combine plies of evenply thickness along with standard thickness plies. The finish is a custom flame and pinstripe graphic covering along with red gaskets under the lugs and badge.
