Slingerland 5x14" Black Beauty Snare Drum - The Holy Grail!

This is truly the holy grail of Slingerland collectibles. This is an ultra rare Slingerland Black Beauty. 5x14. These are the rarest of all black beauties and are rarer than any Ludwig black beauties. There are only about 14 known examples of Slingerland black beauties in the world. This one is in superb condition and, in my opinion is likely the finest example known. The drum was catalogued from 1928-1932 and very few examples were built. The shell is heavy brass, and the drum weighs more than Ludwig black beauties since Slingerland used a heavy double flanged rim rather than the lighter, single flanged variety Ludwig used. Very few examples of these drums ever surface. We were involved in assisting on several of these sales, and we can tell you with great assurance that these drums are exceedingly scarce and prices for them have continued to sky rocket over the years. This drum is in superb original condition and is nicer than the last drum I owned and sold. Strong black color on the shell and the cleanest looking shell I have ever seen on one of these drums. The art gold hardware is in remarkable shape for an 80 year old drum, with some of the normal surface wear on a few of the lugs, but far less than on other examples. The only thing that you may want to do if you intend to play the drum frequently is to replace the cable snares if desired since these originals are 80 years old. This is truly a rare opportunity to acquire the rarest of all black beauty snare drums.  This drum should be the cornerstone of a truly fine vintage snare collection.
