This Slingerland 7 x 14 mahogany wood snare drum is in very good shape! There are some light scratches on the outside of the drum, as expected in a drum of this vintage. On the interior of the drum is stamped “M” and “Apr 4 1950” in black ink, though the “50” is quite faded. The snare throw works well and it has its original snare wires. There is no muffler on this model. It comes with good used condition heads. Please note the hardware is showing some light pitting, specifically on the lugs. Both of the stick saver hoops have very light general wear. There is no stand and no case included.
