yupAnother very strange “Brady”. I truly doubt this is an original Brady snare.
1. The badge is not in the right place.
2. Lugs are not original
3. Hoops are not original
4. The vent hole grommet does not fit the period the badge is from (early 90’s)
Either this is a fake or a former tom that has been built out as a snare.
More pics would be helpful, also from the inside.
The early models had no stickers. Neither snares or kits.Cool.
Btw. Older Aussie snares came with a sticker inside with info regarding the snare. It could be that this sticker was lost over times so, I wouldn’t go by that only to deermine the originality of a snare.
You guys are right on, this is not a genuine Brady, its to be used as a teaching and selling aid that I can explain a little later. I would NEVER try to pass this off, never even entered my mind.
It has been cut down from a floor tom, and it is a Brady shell, but im just trying to determine what the wood is as we are both unfamiliar with Aussie wood....when I show you the other side of the shell you will understand. Sorry if I upset anyone.
