Gizmo that Autograph snare is amazing - it looks to be the full 8X14 & the signatures appear to be over laid on a thin layer of pyralin (celluloid / plastic?)


yup it is a swingster 8x14 and the pearl is rather thin and brittle not sure if sun or temperature transfered the print to the wood....???



Thanks!

Here is my rarest. Rolling Bomber. Not restored but it nice
condition plus I have the rest of the 5 piece set.
All original with original radio King calf heads.
Nice! I'm a big fan of WWII era drums. Keep it unrestored, in IMHO. It's in too good o' shape. I restored my Ludwig "Victory" snare (shown earlier in this thread) as the finish was totally gone.

Too late. I'm still trying to get my jaw back on.
