Default Re: WFL snare weird shell construction

I didnt wanna take the heads off cuz i finally got the snare tuned to the sweet spot. But i think you solved the mystery as to why someone would do this. They just plum didnt know what they were doing. Maybe it was their first week on the job? Maybe they were hung over? Ill sleep better at night thinking that the crudeness gives the drum its tone.

I think this drum really drives home the point that guys back then didnt care about the shell construction. As long as it sparkles and has a Ludwig badge. What if Craviotto or Canopus or any other high end drum makers had shells that left the shop like this? What would the public say? Funny stuff to think about...
