This 9 ply, 6x13 Rosewood beauty is unplayed and like new. This drum was the winner of 2009 Not So Modern Drummer Snare Olympics. The Rosewood has more mid-low sound wise, and the size gives it extra bite. The glossy finish is without scratches, dings, dents, or any sort of blemish whatsoever. No pitting of the hardware and the throw-off is as smooth as can be.
