Vintage 1900's Carl Fischer 16" Rope Marching Drum
This is a vintage 1900's era, Carl Fischer 16" (Cooper Square, New York) 'Rope' Marching Drum. Used. Shell depth is 10". 3-ply mahogany shell. Maple hoops. Snare throw-off looks to original, though not positive (see photo). 'String' snare strands. The snare side head is a Remo Clear Ambassador. The top head looks to be a Remo 'Fiberskyn' (not sure). Cotton rope is worn and will not 'tighten'. 10 original string 'lugs'. Two original string sliding tighteners ('hide' part of tighteners is worn). Shell is out of round (up to 1/4") on both sides. This drum needs some work in order to be able to play it properly.
