Great man!! What year is it abouts?

I have a 1978 one that I bought off eBay a few months ago. I restored it and besides the few scratches and nicks I couldn't get out, it's a beaut.

Mine is outfitted with Remo Coated Vintage A Ambassdor batter and a clear Ambassador Snare Side Resonant. Both heads tuned equally in pitch to a G. One of the best sounding snares on the planet!!!

I have got one around the same year as that. I haven't played it for a while, but I prefer it to my Ludwig super sensitive.

they are great snare drums that never die

Nice drum and sweet price. Totally an essential on my list of snares to buy, since there are swarms of these on eBay.
