This is a super cool vintage snare drum case that's loaded with vintage stands, sticks, and accessories. We recently snagged this case at an estate sale, and although none of the items individually is in pristine condition, they represent some fantastic percussion history. Expect to find age-appropriate signs of wear and tear on all items, including scuffs, scratches, dust, oxidation, fingerprints, etc. Please inspect our photos closely, and let us know if you have any questions. Buyers outside the continental United States should message us for a shipping quote prior to purchase.
Here's a rundown of exactly what's included and the condition of each:
- Hard Fibre Snare Drum Case with Hinged Lid and Accessory Tray - A partially torn decal on interior of lid reads GENUINE VULCANIZED HARD FIBRE. This case has some warping and signs of water exposure near the handle. All hinges, latches, and rivets function and appear to be original. Accessory tray fits in the top of the case snugly and the lid closes securely. Curved snare drum section of case has an adjustable cloth belt with buckle to hold the drum in place.
- Collapsable Metal Music Stand - There's no branding or decals on this music stand. Lots of pitting and oxidation, but everything functions as designed.
- Collabsable Metal Three-Armed Stand - The stand (between the case and the snare stand in our primary photo) appears to be some type of snare stand, but we're not sure. The design of the longest arm makes us question its purpose. This stand is engraved with MILLS PAT. APD. FOR. Again, lots of pitting and oxidation, but this stand functions as designed.
- Collabsable Metal Snare Stand - Engraved with AWS THE HAMILTON PATENTED. The snare stand also has lots of pitting and oxidation but functions as designed.
- Three Pairs + One Stick of Dark-Colored Drumsticks - None of these sticks have any branding. They are made of a very dense, heavy wood. All pairs are different models with different tip designs.
- Five Pairs of Lighter-Colored Drumsticks - One of these five pairs of sticks is engraved with LEEDY H1. All pairs are different models with different tip designs.
- One Woodblock
- One Circular Framed Cloth Practice Pad
- One Canvas Marching Strap
- Two Lyres
- Three Miscellaneous Mounts - These miscellaneous metal mounts are likely for cowbells, woodblocks, or other auxiliary percussion instruments, but we are unable to identify their exact use or purpose.
