This is a Slingerland 5.5 x 14 light blue pearl wood snare drum in great condition. The light blue pearl laminate looks great! There is a very slight lift at the seam of the laminate starting. This drum has the Black and Brass Niles badge in very good condition. The muffler and the snare throw are working well. There is some very light pitting starting on the lugs. The hoops have light player wear to them – the bottom hoop has a ding in the edge below the badge. The top hoop has a small section that is pushed in slightly and has a light stick mark. This drum plays with a nice crisp sound! It comes in a good used plastic case. No stand is included.
