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.
There is something about a stave snare that can't be beat. The tone, the character, the color...! There is nothing like it. The combo of Maple and Walnut isn't just good flavor for a candy bar, it makes for a sweet drum as well. The condition is like new. There are no dings, dents, pits to be found on this beauty. A true work of art to beat the begeebers out of !

This snare is really cool. This would be a great addition to any high school, or professional drumline. It has a very rich, sharp snare sound that any marcher is looking for. Ive seen a lot of drummers tune this guy down and add it to one of their kits. The hardware on this drum is hefty, and already has a clamp for your marching harness. Very versatile drum, get yours today! -JK10547
