Don't wanna wrinkle any feathers, but this is a "Drum Mate" line. The "so called lugs" are not really lugs. Some of these kits have pass-through rods, others screw directly into the lug. Not the best idea Star ever had.

Indeed, it could be both a Star or a DrumMate kit (although I've never heard of a DrumMate junior version).

Here is a link to the Swing Star 'Midget Drum' with exactly this configuration:

Anyway, thanks for that great pic!
