Hi,

Picked this up locally, so far only shots are from the day I bought it.
6.5 depth. No major flaws. Chrome is a bit tired, probably been abraded with some steel wool by the feel of the rims, but not bad.

Since then I have cleaned and polished, replaced the heads and got a set of new Pearl S-025 snare wires that fit the Tama mechanism.

Sounds and plays like a dream. Only used it on one gig so far (big band), lots of sensitivity and authority.

I had never played a Tama rosewood snare till I clapped eyes on this. It's a treat.
