Can you identify this 3-pt strainer?

I compared to a Slingerland and a Leedy, and it isn't either of those. Came on a 30's L&S drum, but clearly wasn't original. Do you know what it is?

Looks very similar to the modern Gibraltar 3 point strainer.

if you have any old american parts around see if any nuts will thread onto any of the bolts of that strainer. If you can determine if its metric or standard you can start narrowing down likely origins

Pretty sure it's an old MIJ knockoff.

Mounting bolts and snare holder screws are SAE thread (8x32), thumbscrew also SAE thread (10x24). Could certainly be Japanese - but if so who?

Sae would make me guess American. If not Slingerland, Leedy, Gretsch or Ludwig, maybe Kent, W&A, or Duplex?

Yes, that must be it. The butt matches as well. The one in the pic is missing its adjustment piece. So the mystery throw is MIJ from around the 60's, and used on some of the Taisco/Norma/Del Rey snares, though they seem to have used a lot of different throws. Thanks!
