Norma 5.5 x 14 60s Snare Drum MIJ

I bought this “new in the box” in the mid nineties. It had been stored in a closet and never played. It’s seen no gigs or heavy playing. I used it a bit im my teaching studio. So it's very clean. I replaced the original slipping strainer w a reproduction vintage 3 point strainer. The drum sounds very good. The Norma drums were hit or miss in quality because the mfr and importer used several sub contractors in Japan. This is one of the good ones. Shipping is an estimate. Buyer pays exact shipping.

Here is some more info from another listing:

Early 60's vintage "NORMA" superior quality built, 5X14 full size snare drum. It's an earlier pre-branded TAMA-Star drum, made in Japan. These early Japanese designed & built drums were famous for making them as their version of close similar copies to that of famous American drum companies early made snare drums. Super Deco badge, displaying NORMA as musical notes on a lined music bar scroll. The "O" is cut out as a clever stylish vented air-hole & trademark design.
