Beato Pro 1's are rainproof and fire resistant. Lifetime warranty. Ahead is two years I think. I've had some that were used for 20 years without issue gigging. Battle tested- and you are supporting a sweetheart of a guy out of California (Fred, the owner).
Dispute with your credit card at this point? Can you get a letter from a professional drum builder who can state this is inferior quality workmanship as a supporting document to your CC?

Agree, but I have found some anomalies. Even late 20's Leedy snares were typically painted interior with wraps, but I have two wrapped ones that are natural inside from then. I also have a WMP Broadway 1941 with this same badge that is natural maple interior.
This drum should be right before...
