Up for auction I have a vintage Slingerland snare drum. I’m not an drum expert but I did do some research to describe it to the best of my ability. The cloud badge it has on its side appears to be copper with a stainless steel ring on the inside and marks it as a 1928-1941 model as far as I know. It has its original calfskin drum heads and a lovely marine pearl finish.
Hopefully the pictures will describe it best and if anyone out there has any extra info I have left out please let me know and email me!
Snare measures almost 7” tall and about 14 1/4” in diameter. I’m unable to find any other markings or serial numbers. Metal shows some pitting and some age. The marine pearl wrap would really shine up with some cleaning. All is in good working condition. Snare tightener handle is slightly bent at the top but still engages nicely and works fine. It is also stamped “Slingerland USA Pats. Pend”. Muffler was removed but holes are still present, unstripped and in good condition. Original calfskin heads are in really good used condition and are stamped on one side. I can make out what most of it says but it gets really faded towards the bottom. “1st QUALITY DOUBLE STRENGTH WHITE CALF...”
