The 28"x14" bass drum is a Spartan model with full complement of 12 single-tension rods. These have claw hooks and tension ‘T’ handles on the playing side and slip through single central locating studs on the shell, screwing into the receiver claws that hook over the front hoop.
The Spartan was Leedy’s budget bass drum model, although Leedy also made Spartan bass drums that had double tension, front and back. Single tension models were built in sizes right up to 34"x16" and this particular example has Sparkling Silver inlaid hoops - which was a five-dollar extra - alongside the Tri-Tone finish. The shell is thin three-ply mahogany with solid maple reinforcing rings.
