Comments: Unlike 99,9 % of my drums, then I have bought this drum here in Denmark. I responded to an add, ended in a bidding war and "won" the drum. What makes this drum extra interesting is that I got the original buying contract with the drum. It was bought february 24th. 1930. The snare was a part of a complete drum kit. You can see all the details in the back of the contract. Years later I was lucky to locate and buy a matching bass drum on eBay US. Costed me a fortune to buy and ship, but it was once in a lifetime chance. See the matching Bass drum here.

FUN FACT: In 1930 the price of the drumset according to the contract, was DKK 750,- ($115). In 2021 prices that would be DKK 28.000,- ($4.365)
