Thanks so much!!! Yep- 6”. Oh! One more thing..the rods have a square on the tip- any significance?Awesomeness. That's what you have there. First generation of DW snare circa 1982. I have number 100483. Some idiot drilled holes (crookedly) and added a tone control to mine that is long gone. Camco throw converted to a butt plate, likely leftover LA era Camco lugs, and Camloc throw off that is of no relation whatsoever to Camco. Keller shell as far as I know and most were 6" deep. Lovely snare drum all around. Great find.
Luckily, I have them all. Woohoo!Yes, very significant. If you are missing one or more you are unlikely to find them. DW has no clue. The closest match I can find are from early 80s Ludwig Rockers but the ends of their threads are tapered. I am missing 4 original rods from my snare.
Absolutely!!! Thanks- that’s really cool.Congratulations, c.wulf
Very nice peace of history. If you like, you could put the serial in our collection of early DWs:
