This is a DW Collector's Series 5.5x14 snare drum in what I believe is Broken Glass Finish Ply. There is a date stamp on the interior of the drum but it is faint and hard to read. It is definitely in the early 2000's but I cannot tell if the last couple of characters in the date are 03 or 05. I believe the strainer model was used on drums dating back to the mid-90's, and I think DW began using the Delta model strainer sometime in the mid-2000's, so my best guess is that this drum dates to 2003. Serial number, as pictured, is 199747. Based on a quick Google search I could not find definite information on manufacture dates based on serial numbers, but maybe a call to DW could shed more light on the question.

Anywho, the drum is in fantastic condition and has only seen light use. Wrap seam is tight, bearing edges are perfect, and the strainer works fine. I put brand new heads on it in March (Skyntone Ambassador batter and Hazy Ambassador snare side) and have since played the drum on two gigs. It still wears what I believe are the original snare wires.

I think I've covered all the bases but please let me know if I can answer any questions for you. I offer free shipping within the continental U.S. Please contact me for a shipping quote to other destinations.

Thanks!
