"pre-converted". The thing is cherry, and sounds just as sweet as one. Also, the snare is of particular interest, because it was a "Tone Flange" model that somebody took off the flange, removed the screws, and carved it down and cut the bearing edges (that's why the tension rods on top are so short). Nice 80+ year old single-ply mahogany shell with the first-ever version of a sparkle wrap, which looks like a golden sand. Drummers always ask me about it at gigs because it sounds so amazing and looks so unique. Not to brag or anything... :D
