They're fantastic sounding snare drums.

Nice. Mind if I ask what you paid for it?

I found it at a flea market near me under a pile of rubble. Ask the person how much he wanted for it , he said give me $5. So I grabbed it and ran.
Here is what it looked like when I put it in my truck.
$5 - snare what you see
$55 - top hoop
$25 - fishtail piece
The rest of parts needed I had ( heads, rods, key, wires )
The rest was all there.
Under $100, not bad in my book.
Love bringing back drums to life.

Excellent restoration of a fine drum! And, you got it for a song! Bargains can still be had, just takes a bit more time to find them now!
