Todays snare of the day is a 1960’s Carlton Cracker.
This popular shallow birch shell snare drum from the 60’s is in lovely condition, in a red silk. The drum is all original with die cast hoops, slot tension rods and Carlton snare wires. The lever for the snare throw is present (they are often missing) and is in good working order.
Yesterday I stripped and cleaned the drum and fitted it with a new Evans G1 coated head. I left the original head on the resonant side. Tuned up she sounds lovely. More pictures here
