    Please tell me what type of snare drum this is......

    I just bought this Tama snare drum. I think the owner had it as something else and didn't know what it was. I'm not sure what model this Tama is. I thought it looked like a nice one.....so I bought it at a good price. Please let me know any info on it. Thanks in advance....

    Different sized hi hat rods?
