"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
Caddywumpus, you seem to know a lot about gear, are a seamlessly versatile musician, and apparently play out incessantly. Can you give us same names and dates? I looked on your public profile and there is no indication of the groups you play with. I just moved to the area and would like to glean from you.
