Default Apollo star finder

Only the second one of these I've seen and the first in 20/14/12 sizes. I have an orphan 12" tom and it sounds very good!

Actually found some NOS 1960's Japanese heads that work perfect on it.

Arrow Re: Apollo star finder

Hey guys. Are these shells stainless steel?
Or are they regular steel that is chrome plated, like most common MIJ snares are made?
They are very cool looking.
Thanks
