This is a great drum, but I need to thin the herd. It’s in excellent condition with just a couple superficial shell marks you can see in the pictures. Chrome is perfect.

Message me with questions.
EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT: now $675 shipped in the US48

How does it compare to a raw copperphonic, any idea?

I haven’t had the chance to play a raw one, so I don’t know personally, sorry!

I thought maybe you could compare the sound of YouTube demos from the same source, so here are both drums from Memphis Drum. (The recordings are 5 years apart though, so I’m not sure if they will be as consistent as I hoped.)

Wow! Thanks for putting these two together like this! I do hear a difference but it’s hard to describe. I have the raw copper 5x14 and am not sure if the pewter is different enough for me to get it….

Ah but yours is a 5” so you know there’s a difference! Lots of people around here have the exact same Ludwig snare in both 5 and 6.5…

I don’t know why I do this to myself…
Gave this one a tuning and switched back the wires, and I am really impressed with it. Reconsidering letting it go, but still available for now at a great price.

Guitar Center just listed a used one of these for $925!!!
There is a B-stock version on Reverb for $699 plus your local sales tax,
otherwise they are $839 plus.

Please message me if you think my pricing is out of line, but I think it's a great deal.

Always wanted one of these but just not the right timing for me right now. Gorgeous drum. Congratulations to the future owner.

Can't really go lower on this at the moment...
It's a great way to have a great limited drum for quite a bit less than new!

Okay...
Needing to sell this drum means I will accept partial trade in the form of a cymbal...
Especially if you have something in an interesting thin old A, Bosphorus, Mehmet, Sabian HHX Complex, possibly Zildjian K.

What Pweter means? Is it the shiny finish on it? That's funny, I like the lug on this one!!! Maybe the imperial lugs start to grow on me. Well, I'm waiting for cash for Christmas, i might consider it.

Pewter is Étain in french, the alloy we used to make utensils and cups out of. Today it is mostly used for collectable statues and figurines.
