Interesting.  Are those Pipe Band sticks?  How thick are they.

Well I googled "ludwig & ludwig chicago Ill USA, model#1S" and the only answer was relating to a 1925 snare with that name.

Maybe you have some very old sticks in a very good condition?

Ludwig and Ludwig started in 1909 and was bought out by Conn in the mid-1930s. I don't know for certain if the name switched to simply Ludwig at that time but I think it did. If that's the case, these sticks would have been manufactured sometime between 1909 and 1930 something.

 

Gee, I'm lucky if my sticks last two months, much less a century...

 

I have a Ludwig Drum Comppany History book at home. I'll try to remember to see what I can find in there.

Ha, it looks like a necktie!  Some people keep their spare sticks in a bag, some in their pocket...but this is new!  :D
