This drum is in Excellent Condition. There are normal signs of wear and use for its age, but nothing that affects its function or playability. The bearing edges are clean and in good condition. There is a small bit of bubbling of the white paint on the interior of the shell, but it appears to have come that way from the factory. The badge is tight at the grommet with no wiggling or spinning. There is a small gap between the top of the badge and the shell. The wrap is tight with some discoloration, though no bubbling, cracks, or peeling. There are some small nicks, scratches, and scuffs, but nothing that is visible from more than a foot or two away. The chrome is shiny with light pitting throughout on the lugs and little to no rust. All parts appear to be original and are in good working order.
