Default Help ID and info on an old bass drum

Found this old bass drum on the curb along with and Apollo tom. I initially assumed that the bass drum was an Apollo too, but the lugs are a totally different style and I'm not too sure now.

Can anyone tell what this is based on the attached pictures?

They appear to have a white wrap, but someone has painted them a vomit yellow color.

Thanks in advance!

More pictures...

You can see the inside of the shell has a granite/splatter finish. Hopefully that's a dead give-away for someone.

Let me know if more pictures will help.

(The last picture is of the Apollo tom, not the bass drum. )

Lugs and tom mount on the bass drum are Pearl stencil bits. I had the same on my Powersonic kit. (clever triple-tom mount there) Bass drum spur mounts look like Peral as well. These were also the same on my Powersonic.

The claws and hoop hooks don't look like the ones I had however. They may be older or newer design, or from a different drum.

Here`s a look at it.....

Default Re: Help ID and info on an old bass drum

Thanks for the replies. I know very little about drums. Any idea what time period it's from?

Also, does the hardware have any value as replacements for a drum with damaged or missing parts? Would it be more desirable sold as a whole or parted out? Or should I just put this thing back on the curb as I found it?

Thanks again!

Bass drum is also an Apollo, just with replaced lugs. Value wise I'd say $50-$80. I certainly wouldn't put them back out on the curb, someone will have interest. Always people looking for project drums.
