There is no aspect of that drum that isn't cool. It's, like, cool compounded by more cool.

Yes!

How's she sound? I would think you'd get a lot of crack with it. What's the specs?

Speechless... what a gem too! I'm always blown away when I see something that old, still looking so good. She was well cared for and now that you have her, she will continue to be well cared for.

Great old drum. Enjoy.

Arrow Re: Duplex De Luxe Spirit of St. Louis

I have never before seen one. Nice. Is it an early version of a free floating shell?
