H002080 GERMAN ARMY SNARE DRUM.

BACKGROUND: By a German army order of August 1933, all military snare and side drums were to be painted white on the inside and on top of the wooden drum rings, whilst the outsides should have 39 red lacquered isosceles triangles along the outer edge, with 39 black triangles along the bottom edge, both pointing inwards, with the resulting squares pattern formed between the triangles in white.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A 38cm diameter drum, with skins to either face, separated by a 18cm tall brass surround with upper and lower wooden bands. The bottom skin has a hole to one side, while the top skin shows the expected usage and wear. Five right-angle metal brackets are equidistantly riveted along both the upper and lower bands, with threaded metal posts fed between them. These control the tightening of both the upper and lower skins. Leg brace complete. Shows the expected period use and wear but overall nice condition.
