Beautiful Leedy Utility model, late 20's or early 30's, nickel over brass, 6-lug. All hardware is original except for some of the hoop clips, which I replaced with modern steel versions. The originals are included with the purchase. Most have been repaired or modified over the years. It is interesting to see what drummers had to do back in the day to keep their equipment playable.

The original snares are also included. I have installed a modern set of snares, but the factory wire strands will come with the drum.

The throw works as it should.

The shell is round, no dents, no extra holes. There is a very slight impression under one side of the butt plate.

There are scattered scruffs, scrapes, and spots of nickel discoloration. The hoops have a few small areas where the nickel is gone. Still, for a drum approaching it's 100th birthday, this example is in very good condition.

Modern heads fit just fine, a new Ludwig WK and a Remo ambassador shipping with the drum.

This is a very playable instrument.
