One of the most innovative snares ever designed. A real beauty.

Original finish?

Yes, the drum is all original and everything works perfect. This finish was called "Dark Mahogany" in the catalogs.

Beautiful drum and interesting that it made its way to Barcelona. Do you know any of the history of its use?
