I've got what I'd describe as a Geo. Way/Camco transition COB 14" x 5" snare. Camco Oaklawn badge (before they started putting USA on it) with a snare strainer showing remants of the Geo. Way style strainer - and in mint condition save for a tiny scratch.
Dang....that is one sweet snare!

I love those high end Premiers! One of these days, I'm gonna own a Royal Ace. That marching drum has the most amazing rims and hardware for it's age.

Hard to believe it's rare but apparently not many were made and even fewer have survived.

Wow, this is an old thread. Since my last posts a year or two ago, this would be my latest addition and my rarest snare. Prototype DynaSonic from Joe Thompson's work bench. 8 lugs and offset handmade snare frame.

Powertone,
Isn't that beyond rare, and actually one of a kind?
In any case, that is the only Rogers snare I have seen lately, that I am jealous of.
That is awesome.

Thanks Matt. That may be the last drum I add to my Rogers collection!

Well, since according to Mendozart this is supposed to be the only Blaemire snare of this color I guess I'll go with this. It was supposed to be white but some green was mixed in with it.

Gotta 60's Meazzi President Snare that has all Original internal Microphone and Trigger Damper with 1/4" cable attached. Original finish wrap which is
Silver and Black. Even both Heads are made by Meazzi. No need for mic'n the snare-lol (100% Factory) **Note there is a black Cloth cover you can see on the edge of the bottom Trigger/Muffler** I ripped it and pulled it down to show the trigger. But its still attached with factory metal zip sealer.

This is a 7x14 stave snare by Wittman Stave Drums...There is only 1 known to exist, I'd say that's pretty rare.
