Yeah, and i mean it's not like it's all fantasy. This pattern of full dress is in the 41 leedy catalog so it's not entirely un-realistic
Even tho i don't think i have ever seen a leedy with Beavertails with full dress, it's mostly the earlier Broadway with the x lug and earlier snares.
So i have now cleaned the inside with a soap solution. Pine-sol is not available here in Norway so i used a similar Norwegian product.
Had to go over it 3 times before it was free from any dirt.
Still smells a little but not noticeable if you don't stick your head into the shell.
The cosmic 21 was made by premier for beverley. Prem and beverley was both owned by the della-portal family.
Premier later on adopted the 21 modell into their own range.
I have never had the chanse to compare the 21 to a supra side by side but i can tell you they are both magnificant drums...
Thanks for giving an aprox date, i really apreciate it.
If you don't mind me asking, does your wmp snare from ca the same timeframe also have a stamp on the inside indicating the finish?
To all the others that have replied:
Thank you guys. It looks like the concensus here is to leave the...

So would be Nice to know if the .020 stamp indicates the wrap color since that then only leaves me with one color option if i want to try to keep it as close to original as possible.
Haha good sugestions guys, but i still i don't think that will cure the problem in the long run.
But the concensus here seems to be to not sand the interior.
So is there any other way to clean a Shell with out damaging it? I'm really hesitant to get close to such an old Shell with any kind of...
I recently aquired an old Leedy Broadway snare that looked like it could need some help.
I really don't have much experience with leedy.
Can any one help me dating it based on the pictures?
3ply maple/poplar/maple i guess.
The shell is stamped with. 020 pearl which i guess...
It depends a bit on how big and how treated your listening space is. If you have a fairly small space that Isn't purpose built as a listening enviroment i can really recomend the Neumann kh80 dsp.
They are supernice, very natural/flat but still powerfull and have a broad range despite the...
I don't own a kit like this my self so i coludn't tell regarding your tom Mount. Perhaps it's Just one of those parts that needs to be broken in?
The starte of premier is as it has been the last 10 years or so... Very under the radar. I think they have been focusing more on their marching and...
