Famous Drum Company single ply maple snare drum prototype #1

Normally $750. Priced as a demo at $500. This Famous Drum 5x14 snare drum is made by George Lawrence and Evan Thomas. It has a single ply steam bent curly 1/4" thick maple shell with 1/4" thick maple reinforcing rings built in our workshop in Phoenix Arizona. The bearing edges are a 45 degree counter cut with a round over on the outside. The snare beds are wide with a deep 1/4" flat. The finish is a hand rubbed gloss lacquer. Why is it a prototype and a demo? It's a prototype because it does not have our standard parts on it. In the beginning, we were experimenting with different lugs, hoops, throw offs, butt plates, and different shell widths and snare bed profiles. This one also has a slightly undersized shell at 13 & 3/4" which gives it a bit more open tone. Standard width for a 14" shell is 13 & 7/8". It was played in the shop and on one gig as a test model, so it is being sold at a discounted demo price. There is slight wear on the top and bottom head, but other than that it is in brand new condition. This is a great sounding single ply drum with a great throaty tone and perfect head and snares response. It sounds equally as good at tight and loose tunings. As always there is a money back/no questions asked guarantee for two weeks. The buyer is responsible for return shipping in the original boxes and the instrument must be in the same condition your received it and not played on a gig. There are a couple of videos of our great sounding drums at Inline link
