Very Rare drum with an even more rare feature of having the May Internal Microphone system installed at the factory. This is a snare that matches the early 80s Black Gold Kit. Made with Maple and a Steel wrap with Gold Plating on top.
The internal mic system is a Shure Special 57 (same as sm57 but shorter barrel) and can be focused on the top or bottom head. This is a sound man's dream, and the drummer benefits from not having any mic stands or mic placement to worry about hitting them with their sticks.
The drum is in 9.5/10 Condition.
If you search reverb.com, you'll find a new old stock kit for sale at over 18,000$ US! This gives you an idea of how rare and sought after these are. I have another snare drum like this which doesn't have the may Internal Mic system and is only in a 6.5/10 condition for $350.
