White Oyster Pearl Ludwig Pioneer NOB

This Nickel Over Brass (NOB) snare drum was obtained in a trade for a cymbal. It needed work, which was easy enough to do, and I am waiting for a chrome over brass hoop I just purchased to swap out the bent batter hoop. There is a little cracking near the muffler too, but that is an easy fix I'll get to when I put the new batter hoop on.

She sounds great as is. A little make up and she'll win beauty contests.

UPDATE: Using MAAS Metal Polish (mentioned in my Friday, January 29, 2010 post) I was able to quickly transform a beautiful sounding snare drum into a beautiful looking one as well.
