Default HELP: Snare Project Shell Long Shot!

I am looking for a project shell for a snare. To be very specific, a perfect match would be a 1960 vintage WFL / Ludwig 6.5x14 three ply mahogany shell with re-rings, drilled out for an 8 lug double mini classic lug pattern - I know that's a long shot.

I recently found a Ludwig transition badge mahogany finished snare of this vintage and specs, but after further inspection, the shell is toast. Super warped, etc.

So - if anyone has anything remotely close in that size collecting dust, I will entertain all finishes, material, etc.

What do you have??? PM me if you can help.

Thanks!!!

Just a though...Cut down a marching snare!! They're readily available. Unless you want to be a purist about it. But then again, your swapping parts which isn't too pure.lol
