Help identify Yamaha "Made in Taiwan" snare drum
I'm curious to know if anyone has information about Yamaha "Made in Taiwan" drums.
There is a Yamaha snare drum for sale at a local flea market. There is no model number on it, only a serial number: 008488. The badge indicates it was made in Taiwan. It does not also say "Republic of China". It measures 13" x 4" with 8 lugs and made of metal. I searched online for hours and learned that Yamaha made drums in Taiwan only briefly, early 1980's I think. Thanks in advance!

That is the one! It comes with a gig bag on wheels. No stand or bells. So, it could be made in late '70's/early '80's or more recent if the band and student models are still made in Taiwan? It has a good tone. I don't have a 13" steel snare drum. For $50 I might buy it.
