About This Listing

A classic knockout! Stunning snare with woody, beautiful tone; classic, maple shell. This is a 2009 reproduction of the 1960s George Way Camco Tuxedo lug snare. In the 60s, George Way was competing with Gretch 6-ply jasper shells. George Way also used 6-ply jasper shells. This drum seeks to duplicate that shell -- I'm not sure of the number of plies: either six or eight. 

They were the zen or snare drums and here's why:
  • Extremely lightweight throw off allowing for more shell vibration
  • A very thin reinforcement ring allowing for more resonance on the top head
  • A very effective, almost non-existent snare head
You can't get a reproduction George Way snare drum for $300, but here is one on Reverb for you to grab before it goes. The $35 shipping reflects cost for East Coast buyers. Other buyers should expect slightly higher cost.
