Re: Who made this?

I believe it's an Olympic Discus. Here is a scan from a 60's catalogue.

Re: Distance between Streamline lugs?

A tiny part of the emblem is covered by the lugs. Here's a picture of how it looks on my aluminum cloud badge snare with single tension streamline lugs. The edge to edge distance is 11.7cm which...

Re: Can anybody identify this COS (MIJ?) snare?

Re: Can anybody identify this COS (MIJ?) snare?

Here are som more pictures of the muffler, strainers and crimped snarebed. The "but" strainer is missing the adjustment knob. There are no extra holes in the shell so I believe the strainers are...

Re: Can anybody identify this COS (MIJ?) snare?

There are no markers at all inside the lugs and strainers. I have enclosed a picture of the inside of a lug.

The strainer system is a cheapo copy of the Slingerland Clamshell strainersytem.

Re: Can anybody identify this COS (MIJ?) snare?

Thanks for all your replies! I will remove one of the lugs and check inside for any markers. The hoops looks like diecast in the pictures but they are not. I will also check inside the strainer.

Can anybody identify this COS (MIJ?) snare?

Just picked this one up. COS shell and hoops. No vent hole and no tags or identification marks. The hoops are "sticksaver type". I assume it's japanese but I have never seen this type of strainer...

Re: can anyone identify this snare??

It sure looks like a John Grey drum. Seems to be the same strainer as the snare on this catalogue scan.

Re: Slingerland Marching Drum

Well, I'm by no means any expert on this, but both strainers existed in the thirties, no doubt about that. I have attached images from the 1936 and 1940 catalogue and you can see the two different...

Re: Slingerland Marching Drum

It's from a catalogue scan that I have. The one you linked to on this page only has the first thirteen pages, while mine has 50.

On closer inspection the model no. 614 is also listed in the 1940...

Re: Could this be a Hayman steel snare drum?

Well, I have a scan of a Hayman catalogue from the 70's (I think, it's not dated) which shows a chrome snare drum. Looks like it's a 5" and not 6" like yours, but at least it shows that they did make...

Is this 30's Leedy rims?

Hi, I just acquired these rims for a project snare I'm working on. According to the seller they are Leedy "Knobby Gold". Is this correct?, and how should they be cleaned?

It is definitely not a Genista snare. The Genista had a different strainer and lugs. It also had clear interior. Apart form the stained interior it looks exactly like the 13" snare that came with a...
