Legend Drums were designed by renowned drum builder Joe Montineri and built by the Kaman company (know for their Gibraltar hardware) in the Ovation guitar factory - hence the beautiful finishes. These were extremely well built drums in their day. Great sounding shells with heavy duty art deco lugs and throw offs.
This particular phosphor bronze model is highly prized by players and collectors. It is a joy to play. The drum weighs about 12-13 pounds, thus the higher shipping price. The lugs are heavy and thick and have full length metal backing plates on the inside of the shell. The sound is big/fat/loud/low pitch. The drum is in excellent condition. Some small oxidation spots and scratches on the the shell. Minor pitting on the chrome parts. It could stand a good cleaning. It is in excellent working condition for a thirty year old drum. I have 9 legend snares for sale and one very rare Legend Bebop kit that I am in the process of listing. I can email higher resolution pics if desired. See my other listings.
(I have another one of this 6.5 x 14 phosphor bronze model for sale - a later nineties model that has the black badge and no lug backing plates) . contact me for more and higher resolution pics.
