This big snare drum sounds amazing. VIDEO here:
Leedy (14x10) $220 (plus actual shipping from 91208 ) - Circa 1960. Mahogany-poplar shell (similar to Ludwigs of that era) with white marine pearl vintage wrap. This is a powerful, warm snare with clean "pop" in its rimshot sound. The edges have been recut in the original, vintage style. 42-strand wires. Nickel-over-brass hoops (with stick-saver shape that curves inward). Leedy shells last forever; they are so well made, they don't go out of round. This drum can be used as a primary snare, a ballad snare, or a field drum for orchestral/pit. The drum has such great body, you can make it really fat sounding by putting a damper on the head. Or, leave it wide open for great dynamic possibilities (including buzz rolls that get really loud).
