This is a 6.5x14 beaded brass shell - nickel over brass. Die cast hoops, brass tension rods on the snare side for a nice aesthetic touch. Great sounding drum from Daren Pfeifer - no issues at all. $250 shipped.
I appreciate the offer (as well as others above) but I have decided to try and sell this one. I am at the stage where I need to cut down on gear, and this one just does not get the stand time it deserves.I have a 6.5 DW Performance snare in a gold glitter finish I’d trade if you’re interested. I can pm you some pics if you’d like.
