AJAX 5x14 "Pipper" Snare-usedsku
Very hard to find UK made snare in almost complete condition. Awesome Green Pearl. THis is called the "Pipper" model and was the flagship snare of the late 50's-early 60's as far as I can tell.
Drum is 90% complete with a very nice what appears to be 3 ply beech or birch shell. Cast hoops, 16 staggered bullet lugs, sloted t rods and a fully functioning parallel throw off original wires installed but only 5 strands remain still has snare tone although a little dry. These would be some of the easiest vintage snares to replicate with something off of the shelf. The throw off lever has been bent over but the mechanism still has the full throw and does not inhibit the snare action at all.
Finish is very nice and clean looking with a few splits on the throw off side. Chrome is in overall good condition and better than average condition for a drum of this age.
Fit's modern 14" heads easily!
Grab something cool and retro without breaking the bank!
