This snare drum is on consignment to Not So Modern Drummer. These are selling online for an average of $1200 plus shipping in excellent to mint used condition. I am selling this one for $150 less w free shipping to the 48 states because it has wear and tarnish that puts it in about 8 out of 10 cosmetic condition. I have only given it a perfunctory cleaning with a microfibre cloth. There are wear scratches and scuffs on the shell and on the hardware. There is one noticeable small scuff that is showing the underlying primer (pictured). There is tarnish on some of the hardware, primarily on the inside of the hoops, most likely from sweaty drummer sweat :-). There is one chrome DW tension rod on the bottom that is not original. We have inquired about ordering a matching copper colored tension rod from DW and will include that if available. Other than that, the drum is in perfect operating condition with no structural damage. Sound wise, it's 100%. It sounds great and the cosmetic wear does not affect the sound. More pics can be made for serious buyers. This is your chance to buy this limited edition drum for about 20% less. New hoops could be purchased from DW and that would bring condition up to a 9 out of 10.
From DW's literature:
North American Maple Shell
Vertical Low Timbre Technology
MAG Throw-Off with 3P Butt Plate
Copper Leaf Graphics
Time Machine Lugs
In honor of Neil Peart's drum set masterpiece "The Time Machine", DW has recreated Peart's snare drum used for the tour. This 6.5" x 14" drum has a North American Maple shell featuring VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) technology that provides the optimum amount of crack, warmth, bottom end, and sensitivity.
This snare comes standard with a MAG throw-off system with 3P butt plate, 3.0 True Hoops, True Tone snare wires and DW heads.
Lastly, this drum has been meticulously finished with copper-leaf graphics and hand airbrushed artwork to look absolutely breathtaking.
