Is that strainer dependable? Is it worth putting on? Or will it break somehow?This drum orignally had WFL Classic strainer (there are 2 slightly different mountings...earlier used the threaded rod as top mounting hole, later used separate hole for top). Since appears already drilled for p-83/85, it wouldnt be a sin to use one of those....BUT, if no other issues besides one extra hole, might seek out the appropriate strainer (just dont get your hopes up of getting a decent one for 20 or 30 bucks).
The Classic p-87 throwoffs work okay if complete and in good condition but your drum would require the nickel plated version to be period correct. Ned from Vintage Drum Center appears to have a couple but they're chrome....and rather expensive.Is that strainer dependable? Is it worth putting on? Or will it break somehow?
Yeah. I would never do business with them.The Classic p-87 throwoffs work okay if complete and in good condition but your drum would require the nickel plated version to be period correct. Ned from Vintage Drum Center appears to have a couple but they're chrome....and rather expensive.

If your drum is indeed the Ray McKinley model (as noted by Rotarded on page 1) then the Classic P-87 in nickel is what you need, but keep in mind the appropriate Ludwig 18-strand wireset for that throwoff is 14-3/8" from end to end & both tabs have 3 holes. I use the Pearl 20-strand extended wireset with my p-87 and they work fine if you drill a screw hole into the end tab.
This listing is for illustration only to view the wireset -I'd never recommend this particular seller for anything.

Here's some shots of mine...great sounding drums
How come no see holes in bottom hoop for snares cord to pass thru?
Only the strainer /butt and rods are magnetic. Hoops and lugs are not. I think it's a 902P, 1948-1952. Possibly a Ray McKinley/Symphonic model, as it has a big "S" in pencil inside it. It also has 1 hole above the current strainer, and does not have a muffler... I got it like it is...so I don't know the history. Sounds good thoughIs that chrome? What year?
Does it look to you guys like somebody swapped the butt when they swapped the strainer? Are they both the same hole pattern?
