20's 4x14 Ludwig Black Beauty

I acquired this drum from Donn Bennett a while ago. It was restored by master drum builder Adrian Kirchler back in 2009. Since he no longer does restorations, I thought I would go ahead and post this for viewing. It's quite stunning! AK is engraved on the inside as well as the year of restoration. The process took almost a year to complete. The scroll engraving jumps right out at you.

No doubt! Donn told me that he only sent Adrian drums that were beyond recognition. Wish I had a before pic to compare!
