Default 60's Olympic Snare - Gold Sparkle

5x14 / 8 lug. Birch, I believe (correct me if I'm wrong).

This thing rocks and I have loved playing it with my 60's ludwig kit, but I'd like to get another floor tom, so I'm selling this beauty.

She sounds a lot like my 4x14 ludwig downbeat, but with more booty.

I'd like to sell and/or trade for a 60's ludwig floor tom 16" (champagne sparkle, preferably, to match my downbeat outfit)

Thanks for looking

Shell might be luan/poplar, at least my late 60's version of this snare is. One of the best sounding snares I have though, gl

It's my favorite snare, I have snares that should be my favorite over this one so I can't really explain it
