Re: Tom i.d.

Looks to be either "Premier" or "Beverley"... (Same Lug)… look up 60's-70's Beverley Tom Lug.. and you'll find them...

Re: Slingerland COB hoops: Die cast or triple flanged?

If you are really worried about the hoop ( and I would not be ), then just pick up a COS stick saver from a 70's snare.
