Overview

Very little detail available on this particular Thomann Special. It's listed as the "Blue" Special Edition, but as someone else stated, looks more like Purple. Finished with a Mapa Burl outer ply and looks pretty damn good from what I can see. Pity the only photos available are from a Worthpoint post from years ago, and they couldn't be much lower res if they tried. 

If you have any more info on this snare, or better still if you happen to own one, please do get in touch. I'd love to know more...

Update October 2022

Actually found some better photos of this model at last! One was listed on a Croatian auction site in 2019 and I found it by accident when looking for a completely different model. I have tried to contact the original seller to ask permission, but as it was a few years ago and I'm just a random from the Internet I'm not holding out much hope. You never know though - I've been pleasantly surprised before. If these are your photos, please do get in touch as I'd like to credit you properly and find out as much as possible about this model.

Update November 2022

Finally got some high-res photos I can use with full permission! The main shot and similar are courtesy of Jean Marc Pavani, who was kind enough to send me a load of shots of his collection, including this rarity. Bardzo dziękuję Jean!
