1920s Leedy Black Onyx Professional Model Snare Drum : 6 x 14
1920s Leedy Professional Model Snare Drum
Finish : Black Onyx Pearl
Size : 6 x 14
Available in the 1920s and 1930s, this Black Onyx finish offered by Leedy is extremely hard to come by! This drum was listed as a "separate tension" / "Floating Head Model" drum with the option of Full Dressed finishing, this Black Onyx being one of those options. These snares were listed as 5x14 model options throughout the catalogs, so finding one is a 6" deep model adds to the collectible of the drum. All of the hardware sports some of the cleanest original nickel and the wrap has seen little to no fading or yellowing. The drum has all original hardware including slotted tension rods, Speedway Strainer, snappy snare strands and calf slunk heads stamped Leedy. 'Time Capsule' is not a term we typically use, but this drum might be a first!
