Drum has a dark Maplewood body that is approx. 10.00 inches high, not including the hoops, and is 17.50 inches wide. The finish on the body is very good with only minor scuff marks. There is a wonderful twelve-pointed star around the view hole. This is made by alternating light and dark wood inlays. There is a small hairline crack extending for approx. 1.50 to 2.00 inches either side of the view hole. To one side of the view hole is a “US” done in white paint that has faded. Letters are approx. 2.75 inches high.

The interior of the drum has a square paper label in excellent condition that reads “LOUIS SOISTMANN MANUFACTURER OF DRUMS, BANJOS AND TAMBORINES NO. 241 NORTH SECOND STREET, PHILADELPHIA.” This company did make drums during the Civil War but they were located at the Second Street address beginning in 1882.

The drum has both hoops which were originally painted red but they are now faded and worn. Both original drumheads are present. The bottom head has a small hole along one edge and both heads show dirt from age and storage.

Replaced tension ropes are attached to the hoops by metal clips. The leather ears look to be original. All are present but several have torn tabs. All show wear.

Snares are missing from the bottom and the snare tension screw is present but loose.    [ad]
