This drum is dated to the period 1882-1909, when J. W. Pepper was manufacturing instruments at the address on this drum's label - Eighth and Locust Streets.  See more of its history at our blog post

The 2 ply 16" dia x 10" shell has a star inlay, and the hoops have an elaborate transfer design. We will replace the broken heads with basic goatskin heads and adjust for playing condition, otherwise the drum is sold "as is". This drum could be converted to a rope drum with a significant number of part changes, ask us if you're interested.
