16" diameter, 12" deep, walls about 1/4" thick and I think 3 ply but am not positive on that. One head is Radio King--the other Rawco Calf--that one is in bad condition. I can't see anything else signed but the claws look like that as used by Radio king but I couldn't find any with that style tube mounts--notice they are fastened to the drum shell at 2 points. The drum should date to the 1930's or 40's as the fellow I bought it from said it was his grandfather-s-who is in his 90's-and his grandfather played it when he was in high school. Marching/Parade/Field. There is a flat spot on each end of the shell that descends down maybe an inch--I showed a picture--otherwise the shell is fairly round--not perfect. I didn't see any splits or repairs but I know the paint is old but not original. One of the claws and bolts is not original. I don't know about the snare assembly either but is what was on it when I found it. I had my son disassemble it to clean it so don't know if I have it put back on right. All but the one claw and bolt look original and have some rust but are sound. This will incur dimensional weight for shipping. If you want this overseas your country must allow a 108" box size. 19/19/19/8d 15b8d s
