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