Amazing condition snare complete in case in a rare wrap. All hardware and wrap are in immaculate condition. The one odd bit is that there seems to be a small hole behind the strainer, but it's filled with a bolt that looks period-correct, so maybe it was a factory mix-up. The butt end's screws used to secure the wire were a bit long, so I just used some nuts to act as a spacer/washer. Date stamp is Sep 08, 1966.

Used Remo Emperor on top, newer clear ambassador on bottom. Wires are generic, but originals are included as well, though they're a little warped.

Tombstone case is in good shape, snare stand is as well. There are some Ludwig brushes included as well. They're a bit tough to extend and the rubber is cracking.

Asking $420 shipped in CONUS

Items I'm currently looking for in trade:
- Asba Caroline pedal (bought one and it was nabbed by a porch pirate!)
- 15" hats (want to try Dream Bliss, but open to others)
- Flat rides
- Crashes
- Green Sparkle wrap for a 22,13,16

It would be a fluke to find COB hoops on a '66. They were pretty much ended by very early 1965. Serials of 120,xxx and lower and you have a shot. Under 100,xxx and very likely.

Very nice drum. Only thing I can think of for that extra screw is that the first attempt at the factory to drill the bottom hole was in error....and then corrected.
