I received this snare with a drum set purchased to rebuild. Rust covered the entire drum. Being chrome, I knew I could clean it and it would turn out looking new. I disassembled the snare keeping all components organized. I cleaned the shell first. Luckily there were no major problems or pieces missing. After everything was clean, I reassembled the drum only replacing the heads.
Other than the initial cost of the drum set, it didn't cost a penny refurbishing. The heads I used were not new but were good for the sound I desired. I used this snare over the weekend in the studio and it sounded amazing.
often times, drummers neglect maintaining drums, such as tuning, tightening screws, and cleaning hardware. I take pride in focusing on those details to keep any brand of drums sounding and looking great. I like taking tattered drums and turning them into a work of art, a work that sounds good as well. whether overhauling a set or having one specially designed LHD caters to both needs.
