You're right!
30 strand, I don't think they even offer these anymore.

I still love it! I've now tried it in an outdoor gig unmuffled, and inside the drum room. The range on this drum is legendary.

That's a nice drum. It can do crack, and it can do fat.

Reviving this old thread: I just bought a perfect example of this snare, but its a 1980. If I'm not mistaken, this badge was for 1980 only?

Correct. I found this at Sam Ash in Richmond in the used section. They told me it was a 1974. Since, I researched and found it to be about 1980.
