Default Vintage 1930s Leedy "Tunable Tom-Tom" Drum - White Marine Pearl

View all photos in HD here: https://imgur.com/a/mKYtG

This Leedy "tunable tom-tom" drum is in overall excellent condition, but the bottom pigskin head is torn and needs to be replaced.

The diameter is approximately 15-3/8" - modern heads will not fit this drum. The depth is 16".

$250 + shipping


All hardware is 100% original, and the drum has no extra holes or modifications. The beautiful 2-ply mahogany shell and edges are in excellent condition! The drum is extremely clean and in great condition for its age, with the exception of the torn bottom pigskin head. This is a 6-lug drum.

The white marine pearl wrap has yellowed evenly, and is extremely clean and vibrant. There are a few very small marks and scratches on the finish.

The top pigskin head is functional, but there are some slight tears on the edges (see photos). There is also a small crack in the top hoop. It seems stable and usable, however. There is some minor plating loss on some of the hardware.

I'm unsure of the exact age of this drum, but it is likely from sometime in the 1930s.

If you have any questions, please message me. Thanks!
