1960’s Beverley 'Cosmic 21' 14x5.5" 

All original hardware, including smooth strainer, butt end, internal damper and slotted tension rods. 

10-lug, chrome over aluminium beaded shell.

Around the early 60's Ludwig switched their brass shells to 'Ludalloy' (essentially aluminium & a secret alloy) to save on costs and everyone rightfully went mad for them. The Ludwig 400 Supraphonic was the drum to have for rock to jazz. British company Beverley wanted a piece of the action and created the poor man's Supraphonic, titled after it's original cost of £21.

Whilst many would say the Beverley Cosmic 21 sounds exactly like a Supraphonic, I'd more say it’s a half way point between an Acrolite and a 400. It has the dryness of an Acrolite, but with the crispness of the 10 lug chromed 400. A perfect combo.

For the money, this is a great gigging and recording snare for any drummer. I used to use one of these for many years when I was still gigging myself.

This drum has no flaking pitting on the shell, which is rare for these shells. This is the best looking Cosmic 21 I’ve ever had in, and I’ve had plenty! The badge is also fully in tact which is just as rare. You’ll struggle to find a better looking one.

Snare has been stripped, cleaned and polished in my workshop, and comes with Remo Ambassador heads and Pearl 20 strand wires.
