Re: Vintage Champion Snare Drum

Vintage Champion Snare Drum

Anyone have any info on this drum? I got it for around $65. I don't have any really old snare drums and was intrigued by it. Says it's a 13" drum. USA made? Date made? Any help would be appreciated :)

Since I don't have a ton of money in these I would probably wait until a really good deal comes though. Thanks for the leads though!

Re: White Ludwig Vistalite drum value

Yes, they are Vistalites for sure...acrylic shells. I actually ended up buying them...too good of a price to pass up. Some of the hardware is not original...hoops, tom mounts but they are no cracks...
