Hello,

My late 50 Slingy snare...one ply maple, clamshell strainer has nickel hardware on it.

Would the hoops on it usually be NOB or NOS?

THANKS!!!

I'm not certain if anyone is reproducing that combination these days

Late 50s will be either nickel over brass or chrome over brass.

A magnet can verify that they hadn't been switched out at some point. If it sticks they are steel, if not they are brass. Brass would be the right material for that time frame in whichever plating (nickel or chrome) matches the rest of the hardware.

The rest of the cast parts would be a zinc alloy.

I would think nickel over steel..i was just thinking if mine was coated or should i say 'plated'.
