This is my “new” antique snare drum circa the late 1940’s. It’s a beautiful solid mahogany shell and currently has a brand new Aquarian American Vintage head on it, to give it the look and feel of real calf. There is no indication of who the maker of it is. The drum uses a single tension rod systemto simultaneously tighten the top and bottom head adding to it’s vintage sound an vibe. The snares are probably the original wire snares, and they add to the extra snap and crackle to this drum.
