late 50s-early 60s thin maple shell no re-rings ,wrong hoops , and refinished . Not much value at all with wrong hoops and the refinish but should probably sound great . 6 or 8 lug ?

Thanks, I knew the hoops were wrong and it probably wasn't worth much, but it does have eight lugs. I took it on a trade/cash deal for the Brook Mays Rogers. The snare is heavier than I thought it would be and the strange looking throwoff works perfectly.

Is that a hex key bolt in the strainer? Can't be original, surely?

I just received this Vibratone. Not sure what's original and what has been replaced? The strainer doesn't look original.

Cool looking drum, probably would sound pretty good. I would re-finish it and keep it on the snare shelf to play it every now and again. Like this little 10 lugger MIJ drum that i just finished.

Nice work, it looks great!

I can't quite make out the brand though...
