This WWII era rope tensioned tenor field drum was close to demise when it was rescued and rebuilt by Gin Lane. As a rope tensioned, wood shelled, all natural material instrument, it is similar in premise (if not in dimension) to historic drums of the 18th and 19th century. It is held together with one rope over fifty feet in length and has genuine calfskin heads on the top and bottom. It sports the most beautiful painting of a most horrible scene and is emblazoned with our original band name ‘Three Big Dummies’. Often it is seen as the first thing rolling away at a party.
