Default De Mowbray Spacer snare drum

I was looking something close to marching snare drum, but for the drum kit, and have found this one:

Just wondering if they're still could be found somewhere?

They're extremely rare and I don't think Marcus made more than a couple of handfuls of them. He doesn't make them now as far as I know.

They don't sound like a marching drum from the reviews I saw of one about 25yrs or so ago, it was a surprisingly full sounding thing.

Just seen some clips on youtube and must admit - it's very unusual sounding thing, but with a great range.
I feeling shy, but want it

Probably has a lot of impact sound, very little sustain, and fairly loud.

I have Spacer Snare #27 out of less than 40 that he ever made (or so I'm told.)

It has a lot of attack due to its wide open design, yet it's surprisingly sensitive. I picked mine up in London back in 2000, and learned only later that I was very close to Marcus' studio during my visit there. I certainly would have stopped by to say hello!

Do you ever use it that often?

I gave it the once over when I first got it, but it was never in playing rotation.

Berm, maybe you would like to part with it? ;)

Not ready yet, but I think my gear will begin moving in the next 5 years.

Ok, today Iíve finally got #38. Dare to ask Bermuda - Jon, how heavy is yours?
I know that there were two batches - the first one was gun metal (bronze, I guess) and the second is aluminum. Just wondering which one I have.
