This really is a special snare drum, fresh off the airways from the U.S.A.

Punchy and articulate, this 5.5 x 13” 1948-52 WFL Classic Porto Pak snare drum is difficult to find these days.

The drum was born out of the need for gigging musicians, be-bop and club players to get their drums into the taxi and onto the smaller bandstands, and still hit the spot.

Having more body than its 3x13” partner, its mahogany-poplar-mahogany with glue rings shell has a tonal depth the other might miss. 

Fitted out in fabulous red sparkle, it sports the famous nickel Classic P-87 throw-off and nickel 6 lug and brass hoop hardware.

It’s in great original shape for a drum of its age, still being played with its original snare wires.

Grab it fast. These drums don’t stick around for long.
