These next two extremely rare Slingerland snare drums also come from Dave Brown’s collection. The first is an eight tube-lug Defiance model in Opal - or Peacock - Pearl.
It’s 14x5-inch and was made between 1930 and 1936. Dave Brown says, “The finish is super rare and only two examples are known to survive to this day. The other is in a world famous collection owned by my good friend Mike Curotto from San Carlos, USA.”
In fact Dave bought the drum from Mike and if it looks familiar it’s because Rhythm used it in Drum Oddities (March 2012) where we used it to illustrate single-flanged stick-chopper hoops.
