1950s Kent 14 x 5″ Steel

1950s Kent 14 x 5″ Steel

Vintage KENT 1950s 14 x 5″ steel snare drum. 6 single tension lugs. Single flanged hoops with clips. Newer single ply heads and snares. Sounds nice and open with an articulate snare response. Cool vintage vibe!
This snare is in Good Condition. It has some pitting and rust on the hoops and hardware. There is less on the shell, which shines pretty nicely, but still has a little oxidization. All parts appear to be original except for the arm on the throw off. It has been replaced. The top hoop sits nicely, but the bottom hoop has a little off kilter look. Tunes up nicely with a sensitive snare response.
