As you can see, there’s some wear to the chrome on the batter side hoop, revealing the brass – the brass hoops adding real character to this drum. The tone is absolutely lovely, that warm vintage sound but with plenty of crack when played with a rim shot.

What can i say? A fairly rare drum in the UK, in fact we don’t come across many Slingerland snares deeper than a 5″. This was purchased from a collector in the USA. and selected for our shop, both due to its original condition and amazing tone.

You can view more details about this drum on the website.
