Snare of the day

Fibes ‘Black Beauty’ 

So this stunning Fibes Black Beauty snare drum arrived at the shop yesterday in amazing condition…

This is an interesting drum, to say the least; other Fibes snare drums I’ve seen have either been clear acrylic of a wrap over fibreglass. This is something else; this is a clear acrylic with the black on the interior. This means that the colour never fades and the gloss never scratches. Genius. Quite a rare drum, relatively; it came from a lovely gentleman in the UK who bought it some years ago and has kept it in pristine condition.

All original hardware with just some minor pitting to the lugs, and Puresound wires replacing the originals. It still has the Professional Drum Shop, Hollywood drum head on it which is lovely.

This drum was only here for a day and is already boxed up and heading back to the USA with this stunning Fibes Copper over fibreglass…. we’ll talk about that one another day.
