All hardware was replaced. The original was not salvageable. Great steam bent snare drum. Don’t know the year but the serial number is 903797.
Feel free to ask questions.
Cash only. No trades.
Great vintage snares!

Pearl makes its Custom Classic one-piece snare drums only in the Japanese plant. Maple boards are softened in a specially made microwave oven, rather than by steam. The boards are then bent around a circular mold. A special frame is used to join the two ends of the board together so they can be glued to form a drumshell. The clamping process must be done very carefully in order to keep the shell “in round.” the shells are “cured” for 30 days in order to allow them to dry to the proper moisture content and make sure they stay in the proper shape. Then they receive their edges and lacquer finishes. The total process takes three months. The fact that most drums can be made in a single day illustrates the complexity and care involved with these unique snare drums.
