3x14 Eames. Started life as a free floater shell. Forum's own imposing will did the new edge and drilled for hardware.
The butt was too low for the bottom hoop so I relocated it...leaving two extra but hard to see holes.
I noticed recently that one of the rods that tightens the snare strainer to the strap is stripped...bought a complete 2nd strainer which I will include as it wasn't expensive and kept me from chasing after just the rod. tuned medium the drum sounds mo' deep than 3"...
Thinking $145 and actual shipping...its not seeing any use

5x14" COB Slingerland Spitfire 12 lug snare.
The good news is all the parts are there but rods....and I'm including 13 new rods as well as a dfd snare side head. I think the original wires are on it (bigger than 14")...one strand missing, one bent when disengaged.

The bad news...dirty...rods are rusty as are threaded inserts. Batter hoop has rust. scratches near badge (hard to photograph) and there are a few dents...mostly under lugs but again one near badge. I've never seen another one and 12 lug 14" Slingy hoops are rarer than rocking horse poop.
$160 and actual shipping

You want both? BRO...I'll even BRO if you want one...
