I have an image of Muraoka Takeru on a Yamaha set, before 1967, with look like rocket lugs, but I can't load it
I would love to see that rocket lug kit. I think that is the kit I was looking for.

An your friend find me the correct snares for my RC snare drum? It has the longer snares and I canít find the part number to order replacements. The website is usually good but I could t find those (which is odd).
Me neither. This was truly the first time I saw the head too. Although I did see the kits and snare with the script logo.

Our HQ in Europe here has a kit that partly has the script badges.

Unfortunately if it isnít available from the Parts List website, its ot available anymore.

It may be in the parts list, but the snare wires did not have a part number if I remember right (which may be "not in the catalogue"). But, like heads, the wires are a wear item... I was able to get the extended snare bridges for the drum.

Do you have any good, clear photos of an original one, so I can determine the length of them? I was thinking a set of 15" drum Puresound wires would work, but I'm not certain- they may be longer; perhaps for a 16" drum for example. The original were not on it when I got it (nor were the extended chromed bridges), so I have no reference to go by.

Try this one: U0241340

It is a brass wire set made for the extended strainer system, and can be found under the concert snare parts list.

That's an interesting wrap!

I have the "red ripple" and it looks nothing like that. Any idea what it is?

(same bass drum logo as my kit too)

EDIT- Waaaaaaaait a minute. Is that a chop-job, with Yamaha overlaying a different kit Tony is playing?
