Default Vintage Premier Royal Ace Snare Drum Early 1960's

Hello to all of you. As you can see ive bought another Royal Ace snare drum in mahogany duroplastic. It also comes with original drum key. The heads are ever play plus condition is as good as it gets. The wires are the original double 10's with 1 wire missing, soon put that right. The pics you see are from previous owner i am waiting for delivery. Obviously the drum with be totally stripped down and cleansed. Every nut washer bolt you name it will be cleaned. The drum will then be sent back out in top class condition. Have a look at this great drum.

Great looking snare! I love it when another mahogany duroplastic drum shows up.

Some pics of the restoration. Every single screw washer rod etc etc is in top class original condition. It even has original ever play heads. The hoops are immaculate. The wires original double 10's. The final pics are to come. This snare drum is as good as it gets.

Top class drum and restore! This snare looks new and I cannot believe how nice that chrome is - the strainer pic in particular really shows that off. Nice job my friend!

It was pretty clean to start with but all the washers and screws needed a good clean in the magic vinegar. The hoops were dirty. Basically it wasnt up to my grade of renovation. Now its a master piece and id put it up against anything out there.
