Vintage Snare drum

Loading...

Hi

I recently found this snare drum while clearing out an attic and i don't really know what it is, what era its from, who it could be made by as there are no badges or markings and if its worth anything.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Andrew

It's a Ludwig black oyster pearl Jazz Fest just like Ringo used to play. Worth thousands.

Come on, dude. There are people here who would love to help, but without photos, or at minimum a description (dimensions, number of lugs, shell finish, general condition), how can you expect a serious answer?!

How about a polite, less sarcastic answer ? You can't assume that everyone has "proper vintage drum forum etiquette", because that's not only ridiculous, but unrealistic. And what exactly are the two pics he posted ? Do they not qualify as photos ? Long story short, don't be such an a55..

It could be a Duplex, but not certain. I had one that looked almost exactly like it, and that was a Duplex.

The throw looks similar to a duplex. A variety of the drum makers back then all made a very similar snare to this. I have several. Any markings on the interior? That would help us to be able to answer your question

Its a pretty standard "Tango" Drum. All the drummakers used to make them. With those tension rods, its a beginner (student) drum. Looks like a nice Walnut shell. The snares would be cord.

I think it’s a pretty cool drum!

8 lugs, how does it sound?
