Used (normal wear)
If it’s still listed, it’s still available. No need to ask. I am taking REASONABLE offers.
This Pearl Professional series, all Maple shell snare drum is in ridiculously great shape for it’s age. Model number is M-814X. 8-ply Maple. Came standard with Pearl’s S-017 Parallel Action strainer.
Purchased buy a guy in 1984 and sold 30 years later to me. The original owner never took it out of the house without a case and went straight to the studio. The wrap on this snare is tight and even with NO bubbles or wrinkles, It looks like a lacquer finish. The lugs had become brittle and pitted so I recently added new Pearl lugs as well as a Pearl Gladstone style strainer. I have NOT drilled any new holes so it can easily be converted back to the Parallel-action strainer (included and fully functional). The drum has the original Cast hoops with bridge guard on the snare side.
It sounds deep, fat, and woody! It can be cranked for rock as a main snare or tuned low and fat for that sweet backbeat. I used it as a side snare tuned low with a BFSD. Heads are still in great shape with plenty of life left!
Looking for a good home. Hopefully someone that appreciates the condition this snare drum is in being close to 40 years old!
