Snare of the day

Carlton ‘Super 20’

OK, so this stunning late 1950’s Carlton ‘Super 20‘ landed at the shop this week and Wow! I’ve never seen one in this condition.

This is a late 50’s 14 x 5″ English made snare drum in white pearl with all original hardware; Die cast hoops, slot tension rods. It has the original snare strainer with lever, in complete working order. It even has the original set of snare wires!

The Die cast hoops suffer from minimal pitting, but man, this drum looks so cool. Fitted with new Aquarian American Vintage heads, this drum tunes up like a dream and sounds great.

If you’re looking for that vintage sound that’s also eye candy, then look no further than this!
