For your viewing pleasure is this magnificent 8x14 Slingerland Super Gene Krupa snare drum in gold sparkle from 1960-62.  This stunning beauty was built with Slingerland's legendary single ply solid maple shell, known for their incredibly beautiful woody tone.  It is in fabulous condition, has been extremely well cared for, and is 100% original with exception of heads.  The original wires are in great shape and sound great, and the chrome over brass hoops look fantastic, as do all of the chrome parts.  The strainer and muffler both operate smoothly.  The gold sparkle wrap is in amazing condition with no damage to speak of, although the gold sparkle has faded to a lighter shade which is less prominent towards the back.  The original black and brass pre-serial # badge is gorgeous and tight.  The bearing edges are original and true, and it tunes up with the greatest of ease.  This deep snare has an incredibly satisfying robust woody tone, with great range and sensitivity.  Enjoy!
