Default 13"x4.5" Arbiter Advanced Tuning Snare

Hello. The past year I bought myself a cool snare I found online. A friend of mine that was close to the seller went get it and give it to me later, on christmas holidays.
The main reason I bought it was the cool mechanism and the OK price.
It is an Arbiter Advanced Tuning (System) in 13" by 4.5".
It is in very nice condition but needs to be properly clean. The only issue I found is the bent strainer, that should be easily repaired.
I thought you would like too see it. Have a nice week.

That should clean up nicely. Great find...in my opinion. I have the 14" version and I love it....but it's very heavy!

Yeah. I think it's relative rare too which is cool.

Very cool! Like two giant hose clamps that tune the drum!

I wonder why that system never got traction. You'll have to give us your thoughts about tuning.

Honestly, I didn't try it yet. I'll give it a try someday
