I acquired this shell on the secondary market in 2013; was told that it was the first prototype of the Famous Turbine model, built in 2007. Segmented (block construction) maple shell, 6.5 x 14, with those great “turbine” blades! I added Ludwig tube lugs and Dunnett throw-off and butt plate (all fit the pre-drilled holes), Yamaha Vintage Maple hoops, and Active Snare System snares. This drum sings! Warm, articulate, projects well…and the rim shots cut through anything. One of those drums that sounds as good as it looks - and always draws compliments for both. Nice work, George Lawrence and Famous Drums!
