Default Tell me about this drum

Hi,

I'm posting in this forum because I don't know much about drums and I have one that seems to be unusual. I bought a Carlton Marching drum about 10 years ago at a yard sale. The badge says Dallas-London. I've been told they are somewhat rare. I'm looking to sell it but I can't find anyone local who knows anything about it or has any appreciation for it. No one in my house plays anymore. If anyone wants it, make a reasonable offer and it's yours. I'm open to questions about it and will answer to the best of my ability.

Scottish pipe band snare with double snare wires for top and bottom heads.
Might be worth, depending upon condition,$2 to 3 hundred.

Thank y'all for the information. NoBass, you have a nice looking drum there. I'm sure mine needs some cleaning but how do I tell what kind of condition it's in? I'm going to continue trying to upload pics.

They crank those heads unbelievably tight to get that snappy sound and you often find black kevlar heads cranked ultra tight. (tighter than unbelievably tight)

Make sure the lug threads are clean and turn easily under pressure.

Be careful using a modern kevlar head and tension because the pressures that are usually used on them may be more than anticipated by the designer of a vintage snare and could hurt the drum.

I would try to stay with whatever heads and tension were used during that time period.

Some say "tighten the top head until it chokes, back off and creep back to just shy of choking.....but with the warning above in mind.
