Snare of the day

Leedy ‘Shelly Manne’

This lovely Slingerland era Leedy snare arrived at the shop recently and is now on the website….

Leedy Shelly Manne Snare drum available at Nick Hopkin Drums www.nickhopkindrums.com

This drum was available 1958 – 1965 and was among the last Leedy drums manufactured. These Slingerland era drums feature 3 ply shells with chrome hardware; this model is fitted with a 3 point strainer and Slingerland’s stick saver hoops.

Finished in White Pearl, this 14 x 5.5″ snare drum is in lovely original condition – with the exception of new heads and snare wires. It tunes up nicely and has a nice, bright response. Although a long way from the original solid shell Ulysses Leedy drums of the early 30’s, this drum is fairly sought after by players and collectors alike.
