And... you've both got me thinking - since it's going to be more a a collector piece than a player piece for me at present, if I would decide to spend any more time or money on it, what would be the best course of action to take from here? I could put the original bottom hoop and snare wires on it (loosely tensioned) and put it back in its case (where it is now) and consider moving it on someday. I keep an Acrolite on my "daily beater" (Ludwig MIT Accent Combo in red with some 70's A Zildjians around it) which serves me and the grandkids well... everything else is more or less "on the table". Would it be a miracle to find an original top hoop with that elegant rim stamp? Note also the black nylon sleeved rod washers - I put these on to help with alignment and to help compensate for the shell being very slightly out-of-round... maybe those should come off. Also checking to see if I still have invoices or packing lists on this.
