This is a Puresound 5x14 Stainless Steel snare drum.  It features beadless stainless steel shell, stainless steel Angel hoops, solid brass tube lugs, Nickelworks strainer, stainless steel tension rods, and original Puresound snare wires.  This instrument is a rare bird, and the origin/history of it is unknown.  Before the Puresound snarewire company was purchased by D'Addario (owners of Evans Drumheads, Pro-Mark Drumsticks, and more), they must have produced a limited quantity of these snare drums, this one being the 10th.  The current employees of Puresound have absolutely no recollection of how this drum came to exist.
